This game fucking sucked.

stray thoughts:

  • THIS GAME DOESN'T DESERVE MORE THAN THAT.
  • This game was so bad, M. Night Shyamalan could have directed it. Badum tish.
  • Castro accounted for 75% of the Cubs runs today. He went three-for-three with two home runs. That hurt.
  • The Cardinals walked eleven batters. That hurt a lot.
  • ELEVEN BATTERS.
  • 1
  • 1
  • 11
  • So. Yeah.
  • *sighs* *rolls eyes*
  • Oh, and one more thing:
  • The full strike zone plot can be found at Brooks Baseball here.
