Cubs Destroy Mets As Economy Collapses

September 25, 2008 | Comments (0) | by Chaim Witz

The Cubs won again tonight, 9-6 over the flailing Mets (who are "pulling an economy") in extra innings. There is a bit of cause for concern though, as Fat Z got roughed up again to the tune of 5 innings in 4 2/3 sweaty innings. Not enough calcium? Possibly. Still reeling from the TMS exclusive on him that we published yesterday? An interesting thought. Whatever the cause, that shit won't fly come playoff time on TBS. Neither Dane Cook nor Frank Caliendo will stand for such offenses.

On the other hand, the offense seems to be heating up, hitting it's sexual peak at just the right time. But lets not totally blow our load fellas. Lou is doing a good job of of resting some of the regulars (usually a couple each game) and getting the young guys some face time, while still keeping everyone limber and ready to go. I was fearing our remaining games would look like glorified split squad affairs, but luckily that hasn't been the case.

Meanwhile, the Mets look pretty terrible, don't they? Their offense is passable, but once you get past Johan Santana you can pretty much tee off like Josh Hamilton in the Home Run Derby.

Of note: I secured tickets to Game 1 of the NLDS next Wednesday. So, judging by my past history, you can expect to see a thrilling account of that experience right around the conclusion of the World Series.
