How about that Taylor Davis with the cuatro cuadrangulares? That was awesome. He’ll remember that for the rest of his life! And such a good time for it. I was forced to endure the FS1 telecast, and even Joe Buck acknowledged that. John Smoltz talked about it at length... which is not unusual for Smoltz. But I’ll forget about that, and forget to ask what’s wrong with Yu, cuz the Cubs won, and frankly, that’s enough for me. I was expecting him to come up Yuge, though.


I’m not gonna lay it on too thick — we’ll need some of that mayo for the Sonoran dogs that are part of the Cinco feast at my house. Holidays of any kind mean food — I have to keep in shape. You do realize that round is a shape, too?

Margarita jello shots all ‘round! A toast to Davis, and to Javy Baez, who hit the game-winning homer.

At the plate stood Kyle Schwarber and all of his homer history against the Cardinals, and on deck was Davis, with none of that nonsense. The backup catcher had not hit a homer yet in the majors, had never hit as many as 10 in any minor-league season. The Cardinals intentionally walked Schwarber to load the bases for Davis.

Wacha delivered a flimsy cutter on the first pitch to Davis, and the backup catcher planted it in the bleachers for a grand slam. — Derrick Goold.
