3-3: Welcome to The Wonderful World of .500

Howdy kids. I missed the game on Saturday as it was my five year wedding anniversary. Luckily, I was able to get an update on the game from our waiter, a Cardinal fan named Fabio. Seriously. You can't make this shit up. Nice enough guy for a Cardinal fan, but Fabio?!? Holy shit.

Anyhoo, Cubs won that one thanks in no small part to the efforts of Kosuke Fukudome. Oh and Derrek Lee might have played a small part as well. I love that DLee has turned it up a notch. Must be the beard.

As for Sunday's game, DLee put his stamp all over this one as well. The biggest thing was El Toro Loco, who pitched his ass off for the second straight start. God Almighty, he looks good early. The Soriano home run was a nice sign as well. The bats seem to be warming up, which is good.

Who the fuck would've thought the Cardinals would be 4-1? This is a joke, right? Their pitching can't be this good all year, can it? And Dusty has the Reds playing good baseball. And Corey Patterson is hitting! The baseball! WTF?

And of course, the Brewers have been good.

Stay tuned. 156 nail biting games left to go.

BallHype: hype it up!
