I tried to make something witty out of the title, but if I’m going to use a cliche, I might as well stick to the tried and true.
Yesterday’s game against the A’s had its ups and downs. The Cubs scored 4 first inning runs which shows that there are plenty of swinging bats in the lineup. Matt Garza got his first hit the gave up four off of Coco Crisp. So there are a few bugs in the bullpen.
Hey, Fukodome was the leadoff and got a hit. That’s pretty good and I might be wrong about him and that is good as well.
The breakout player was Soriano with three hits. I hope he has an amazing year.
It’s only the first game so I’m not worried about a 15-7 drubbing. The unseen star of the game could be SS Darwin Barney with a hit and a run.
Bring on the Brew Crew!!!
