I watched the Cubs-Cardinals game today. Scoreless through 7.5 innings, brilliant pitching and defensive performances. Bottom of the 8th, the Cubs sent out a lefty reliever, a rookie. He gets a groundout, then gives up a double. Then the Cardinals send out Albert Pujols. The poor rookie, desperately hoping he was not going to give up #695 . . . but of course he did. Cardinals win.
Really I'm a Cubs fan, but you can't help but admire that.
