I Hear Rain Is Good For The Ivy?

Well, it sure does rain in Chicago.  It’s been an unusual year for weather and an unusual year for Cubs baseball. Sometimes I wonder if there really is some truth to the curses in the team’s storied history?

Even when they get on a roll, it seems Mother Nature throws her hand down over Wrigley Field and says, “We don’t want to get anybody’s hopes up.”

“We’ve had bad luck because of all the rain delays and long games,” catcher Welington Castillo said. “I think we have to stay with it, because if the other team stays with it, we have to stay with it. We’ll be fine. We have a lot of young guys in here who can handle it.”

Perhaps it’s a test of their resilience you know, to build that dynasty? It could be, or more likely, not.

One thing is for certain; Jorge Soler is for real. He continued with his impressive streak collecting an RBI.

The game continues today at 2pm

Believe it.

    Did they put the tarp on correctly? Just kidding.
    I got my first look at that Soler kid yesterday….hot damn! He’s a big boy with pop. When he learns a little patience it’s gonna be scary.
