So, I was at a friend’s baby naming ceremony this afternoon and missed most of the Cubs/Cardinals game.
These are things about which I am not sad.
Paul Maholm had his second straight brutal start, and the Cubs never had a chance (particularly with a … weaker lineup than usual). Yadier Molina and today’s voodoo magic special Matt Carpenter (who?) did the bulk of the damage. Lendy Castillo struck out four in two innings, which is nice, but he also gave up a two-run bomb to Carpenter, which is less nice.
And I think it might be time for someone to get a couple days off to collect his thoughts…
