Return Of The Dancing Bullpen Not Enough For Cubs
The Cubs are going to have to find a different way to increase their luck.
When the Cubs moved the bullpen from foul territory to under the bleachers to add more seats to make more money a tradition was born. Whenever the Cubs hit a home run, the bullpen would have a little dance party. It was cool.
Sometimes other teams got into it.
Sometimes they just did it when they were bored.
Ultimately the fun wore off and I'm sure it started to become kind of a drag.
They stopped doing it this year but in honor of the playoffs, I guess, they broke out the dance moves again when Ian Happ blasted off in Game one against the Marlins to give them a 1-0 lead.
Unfortunately that was the only runs the Cubs could muster. And when David Ross left his starter Kyle Hendricks in the game, what some would say, a little too long:
...it was essentially over for the offensively impotent Cubs.
Game 2 is tomorrow. Same time (1 PM, 12:25 pregame.) Same place (1440 WROK.) Yu Darvish is on the mound and if he gets business done, Big John Lester takes the mound for the deciding Game 3. Playoff baseball in 2020, we'll hopefully never feel this kind of excitement again.
