|There's a 75% chance that baseball was never seen again|
The good news is that no matter how badly the Cubs destroyed the Sox on Monday night, or no matter how much we might lose by on Tuesday and Wednesday, the beloved BP Cup will be staying on the south side. That much we know.
The bad news is that Zach Stewart was checking out the BP Cup before the game and when he tossed it back to A.J. Pierzynski some random Cub took a swing at it and hit it 500 feet into the left field bleachers where it shattered on impact.
RIP BP Cup. 2010-2012
So, yeah, Zach Stewart didn't suddenly become good when he moved from the bullpen to the starting rotation for a night. He allowed 4 home runs in only 5.2 innings and has now allowed 10 home runs in only 30 innings this season. If this was indeed an audition for Stewart then Dylan Axelrod should start packing his bags and getting ready to come to Chicago.
And, really, that's about it. I mean, what else is there to say? The Sox just got their ass kicked by a terrible Cubs team, but did so on a night when they should have gotten their ass kicked.
You send Zach Stewart out against Matt Garza, and nine times out of ten that's what is going to happen.
I just hope the extra rest works out for Jake Peavy and Chris Sale.
