9-5: Holy Cow, There's A Swimming Pool in My Basement

When my wife and I got home from work yesterday, the cats were swimming in the basement in about an inch of water. Apparently, the sump pump had decided to go the way of Felix Pie's batting average. Needless to say, we had to get a plumber out to our place and repair the crappy sump pump, then we spent quite some time sucking up all the water that had leaked out during the day. So by the time we turned the game on, it was already 11-1 Cubs. Still, it looked like Zambrano was dealing and the offense stayed hot, especially Manbeast, Derrek Lee. El Toro Loco wasn't too shabby at the plate himself, helping his own cause. Let's hope the boys can pull off the sweep today and send Dusty packing winless in his first return to Wrigley.

BallHype: hype it up!
