I would imagine that, however you were feeling yesterday, you’re feeling the exact opposite way today. The Cubs pulled the comeback trick on the Pirates today – and the guy off of whom they did it ain’t no slouch – and I’m tickled. I’m also, frankly, shocked…

    Loved that lights out bullpen for the 7th, 8th and 9th. Z was actually decent and Casto is something else. I look forward to seeing how Garza does.

    I confess, I was very upset, yelling at Soriano, and thinking about the terrible showings against Pittsburgh last year. The 8th inning was great vindication for all the agony of the first 7. The end of the game was great, Soriano’s game tying hit and Blake Freaking DeWitt(who I was cussing the whole time he was in the on deck circle) coming up with that double, and then Marmol’s usual antics in the 9th. Now a win today and the Cubs are over .500 for the first time since 09.

      I was having an extremely similar experience while I was watching that transpire as well!
