So please excuse me while I state the obvious in my recap of last night:
- Justin Germano isn’t very good at pitching baseballs.
- Josh Vitters was 25% good at hitting homeruns.
- There are a bunch of people in the Cubs bullpen that I’ve never heard of.
- I still hate Ryan Braun.
That preeeeeettttty much sums it up.
Yet another butthead lefty starter is coming up to pitch tonight. Are you as excited about it as I am? I knew you would be.
MILWAUKEE — Chris Rusin may have had the easiest travel schedule of all the young Cubs starters. The left-hander, who will make his Major League debut on Tuesday against the Brewers, caught an 8 a.m. CT flight Monday from Des Moines, Iowa, to Milwaukee, and headed straight for Miller Park.
“It’s a dream come true — I’ve dreamed about this as a little kid and it finally happened,” said Rusin, who will be officially added to the roster on Tuesday.
Oh yes, for us, too. There’s nothing we’ve dreamed of more than watching Chris Rusin make his major-league debut against the Brewers. That is EXACTLY how I’ve always dreamed of spending my Tuesday night. Le sigh.
Because the Cubs are so damn depressing, let’s take a moment to laugh at Melky Cabrera one more time:
San Francisco Giants star outfielder Melky Cabrera mounted a campaign to avoid his 50-game suspension that included a fake website featuring a fictitious product in an effort that was quickly uncovered by MLB investigators, the New York Daily News has reported.
Citing an anonymous source close to the case and a Cabrera associate who told the newspaper he was “accepting responsibility for what everyone else already knows” concerning the fake site, the Daily News reported famed investigator Jeff Novitzky and agents from MLB’s investigative arm have begun looking more closely at Cabrera and the scheme purportedly hatched in July as they seek the source of the synthetic testosterone found in his urine.
“There was a product they said caused this positive,” the source told the Daily News of Cabrera and his representatives. “Baseball figured out the ruse pretty quickly.”
Am I the only one dying to see this website? I would love to see what a doped-up, panicky Melky Cabrera can do with a few hours and a WordPress template.
New guy pitches tonight in Milwaukee at 7:05 pm CT.
