Since Anthony Rizzo slid into his slump, I've been wishing and hoping and thinking and praying his hitting would start. And Sunday, FINALLY, it did!
He is a good guy, a good teammate, a good ballplayer, and therefore only deserves good things. He's been working hard with the new hitting coach. Hopefully he'll start to reap the benefits.
Meanwhile, closer to home, my Cubs beat the Cardinals. Big! Handsome Dansby Swanson is back and red hot Cody Bellinger continues to power the boys in blue with his bat.
It was a fabulous day of baseball and did this old heart of mine good.
