So, I have a confession: I’m without my computer today, so I can’t prepare the EBS as usual. You’ll have to use your imagination.

Would I highlight the score, and say something about how you can’t lose them all? Would I just lulz at the fact that the Reds extended their losing streak while the Cubs ended theirs?

Would I highlight Brett Jackson’s line, and note that he struck out only once?

Would I highlight Alfonso Soriano’s 20th homer?

I might’ve highlighted Carlos Marmol, who, in Carlos Marmol fashion, converted his 14th consecutive save opportunity.

I probably would’ve at least noted in the text that Anthony Rizzo had a great game, and that Chris Volstad had his second consecutive quality start.
