I’ve never seen people get so angry about a Cubs player being blisteringly hot. And while I’m not ready to crown anything, as I wrote this morning, I’m certainly not going to dump on a guy who is hitting out of his mind.
That is to say, yes, Ian Happ just started off another hot day. A three-run shot in the first:

Happ is at his best when he’s going to that left-center alley (which happens to be a very friendly place to go at Wrigley Field – that ball is a double in any other park).
There is not a hotter hitter on the Cubs outside of Frank Schwindel right now (naturally Schwindel singled earlier in the inning and was on base for the Happ homer).
Ian Happ plays a little basket ball at Wrigley. Three-run shot in the 1st.
The Cubs outfielder is now slashing .372/.410/.769 with 8 HR and 20 RBI in his past 22 games. pic.twitter.com/1IaPY6rDb1
