Cosmic Things Are Happening

This is a phrase my buddy Mike likes to use in seasons when the Cubs start... well, playing like the season might actually mean something.

Last night's amazing 6-1, 10-inning win over the Pirates was more proof that this could be a special season.

The Cubs gave the Pirates a gift run in the 9th, tying the game, when Hee Seop Choi couldn't handle a foul popup off the bat of Jason Kendall, who wound up singling and scoing. Past Cub teams would have folded and lost the game, but they came back and not only won, but scored five runs off Mike Williams, one of the best closers in the game.

Good teams do this sort of thing; it's been shown over and over again.

The twelve wins the club now has is only four short of the team record for April, set in (dare I say it?) 1969. There are nine games left this month.
