The Right Outcome
I know I said the Pirates were gonna win. But all that time, I was secretly hoping the Cubs would pull a win away. And lo and behold...
Jake Arrieta is a freaking artist on that mound. The guy deserves some serious consideration for Cy Young, even if the race between him and Greinke will be tight. Kyle Schwarber is a menace at the plate. Kris Bryant is a future postseason icon. And Dexter Fowler reaffirmed his status as the best player nobody's heard of.
This was a great game for baseball. Even if Cubs-Cardinals could be kind of one-sided, it'd be pretty damn nice if the Cubs went on a tear in St. Louis. They've got the momentum, and they've certainly got the talent.
