Anthony Rizzo is a diaptoit

Chicago Cubs v Cincinnati Reds - Game Two

Yesterday sure was something, huh? The Reds and Cubs split a double-header.

And that was about it, as far as I can tell.

The Reds and Cubs will finish up this four-game set this afternoon with Luis Castillo huckin’ rocks for your Redboys and Tyler Chatwood doing so for the Cubs. Castillo hasn’t been as obviously fantastic as his bandmates Sonny Gray and Trevor Bauer this season, but don’t sleep. Kid might rip into a solo that can bring you to Jesus.

They’ve won four of their last five, which is rapidly bringing me back into it. It wasn’t even a week ago they looked to be so dead that putrefaction was beginning to set in. But they are alive as ever man and Jesse Winker is hitting baseballs better than anyone else in the galactic neighborhood right now so I advise you check in on this one during siesta this afternoon.

*diaptoit is a portmanteau of ‘diaper’ and ‘toilet.’
