Today's haiku was stolen from @c1t1z3nx on Twitter:
It may be too late
To reach post-season this year
But winning's still fun
I was going to write my own haiku, as usual, for today's game. But @c1t1z3nx captured my thoughts with his great tweet. You should follow him for more great Cubs tweets. Thank you, Seth, I hope you don't mind that I've used your tweet here.
It looks like the departure of Milton Bradley removed a huge weight from the shoulders of the Cubs. The bats came alive, with back-to-back home runs in the second inning (Lee and Ramirez, for the 4th time this year) and hits for all the position players except Micah Hoffpauir. Tyler Colvin made his major league debut going 1-for-3 with a walk and a sacrifice fly, notching his first RBI in the process.
The controversy surrounding Bradley continues, with the player's union threatening to file a grievance and some tweeters and blog commenters continuing to accuse Cubs fans of racism for being glad that Bradley has left the team. I still stand by what I said yesterday and last month, none of which has anything to do with the color Bradley's skin, just the size of his mouth.
