Sorry about the delay – we drove overnight from the beach, arriving a few hours ago. I weighed the relative merits of taking a nap before starting to write, and I decided you guys could wait a little bit. I hope you understand.
If only the Cubs could face Johan Santana in every game, eh? Reed Johnson and Anthony Rizzo were all-universe yesterday, and Jeff Baker and Geovany Soto were solid as well. (Baker’s and Johnson’s numbers are suddenly looking pretty good.) Travis Wood pitched well enough to win, and the bullpen held on late.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t all good.
