Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 40

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Hope you didn't show up for this one late. All of the excitement was over by the third inning.

At least they scored three runs for you today, Shark. Too bad you had the Keystone Cops playing defense behind you for the first two innings.

Castro creeps ahead further in the Hero division with another Superhero performance, while Castillo ties Olt for third place in the Goat division. And hopefully the weather tomorrow will be warmer. Not sure it could be much colder, to be honest. (Well, I guess it could be, but let's not think about that.)
