What a load of Crap: 17-2 And this Proves??

Joy. Whoppee. What a team! A great win.

It was fun to watch - and nice to see the lumber applied for once. Is it possible that the Cubs can play the Pirates every game for the remainder of the season? So after the Cubs have their asses completely handed to them by the Marlins, Rockies, and Philles, the Cubs come back to thrash the AAA Pirates 17-2. What does this mean?

Absolutely jack, imo. In fact, it is infuriating. Actually, it means that RIGHT NOW the team is not in the same class with the above-named teams, and you may include the Dodgers, Giants, and Braves. This was like Slippery Rock Teacher's College playing University of Texas in college football. It is false bravado. On a very bright, non-sarcastic note, I am extremely happy for Randy Wells. What a great surprise and without him I can only imagine where the team would be now. Many players overrate "momentum" in baseball. At the least, perhaps the players were suitably embarrassed enough to play "real baseball" again. So what about the rest of you? Does sweeping the Pirates (if it happens) bolster the Cubs optimism? Will they turn it around and play .650 baseball for the rest of the year? Will they climb out of the MLB RISP cellar? Or, will they go out to the West Coast and get their asses kicked once again?

In my mind - I am not getting "giddy".
