The last two weeks would have been so much fun if not for all of the losing that preceded them.

Travis Wood was just fantastic tonight until he tired in the 7th, which featured Albert Pujols homering at Wrigley Field, because he doesn’t know how to not homer when he’s at Wrigley Field.

On offense, it was all homers for the Cubs, with the one by Darwin Barney equaling the damage of the first three by Alfonso Soriano, Anthony Rizzo, and Starlin Castro. But it was the last one – the second from Soriano – that really left my jaw agape. This guy is really incredible when he’s on. I have run out of non-repetitive ways to describe just how good he’s been.
