So, who feels like punching a dolphin?
Make no mistake, the Cubs were supposed to lose this game. But the Cubs weren’t supposed to score four off Yovani Gallardo in the first three innings, and chase him after five. The Cubs weren’t supposed to hold the Brewers scoreless over the middle four frames. Kerry Wood wasn’t supposed to give up a game-winning two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth (to a guy who, arguably, was supposed to still be a Cub). And most of all, I wasn’t supposed to get my damn hopes up.
