Cubs Walk Off Grand Slam Broke Me
After finishing up The Affair, I turned on the Washington Nationals-Chicago Cubs. For those who don’t watch The Affair, it can be a terribly depressing show and make you feel down in the dumps. The episode did have some of those vibes, but nothing made me feel worse than what happened at Wrigley Field on Sunday night. David Bote hit a walkoff grand slam in the ninth inning with two outs to give Chicago a 4-3 victory over Washington spoiling Max Schrezer’s great start. This felt like the start of the Chicago takeover.

Consider this, Bote is only in the major leagues right now because Kris Bryant is dealing with an injury. Cubs got the bases loaded by an error and two hit basemen. Ryan Madsen had two strikes on Wilson Contreras before he hit him. Madsen also had two strikes on Bote before surrendering the grand slam. Hell, the pitch nearly wasn’t in the strike zone that Bote hit out of the ballpark.
Cubs are riding high heading into Tuesday while the Brewers are not. We shall see what happens.
