Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 4, Pirates 10 – May 27, 2012

Think what you will of the relative import of the rest of the season for the Cubs, but one thing upon which we should all agree is that it does no one any good to have Matt Garza out there getting blasted by the Astros and the Pirates. The Cubs might not be a playoff-caliber team this year, but, whatever they are, they need individual players who have value to retain that value. Today did nothing good in that regard when it comes to Mr. Garza.

I actually avoided today’s game while watching the Reds and Rockies in Cincinnati with family. I apologize that I probably enjoyed myself more than you did. But every time I saw the Cubs’ score flashing on the scoreboard, The Wife and Father-in-Law undoubtedly saw me kick the seat in front of me. Freaking Cubs.

Today’s enhancement necessarily has a tacit, built-in punchline…
