whether that's a metaphorical place or a literal place who knows? I watched the game tonight, and I watched the players, they were having fun. I know they were winning the game, but even before the game was "won", when Pena hit the double and drove in Aramis he was all smiles. Campana's lucky(?) call, the dugout was having fun, and when Castro caught that bloop after the game he and Barney hugged...it wasnt just a chest bump and they were off, they hugged, like two brothers hugging, it was a great sight. I have no idea if that was direct result of Zambrano being gone. I do know it looked like the Cubs had fun tonight, and with a season like the one we've experienced it was nice to see. We haven't seen much of it recently and they didn't make me hate them tonight.
