The problem is that the offer of breakfast included unlimited mimosas. As in, all you can drink until the bell rings for lunch.
The Cubs game comes on early out here and, by then, I had switched to a local lager.
To make a long story short, I rallied when the Cubs lost the 3-1 lead in the 8th ( our trade bait Chapman finally gave up a hit ), and Cubs fans faces froze with, " the look." Granted, I too was reeling.
MUCH TO MY AMAZEMENT, the Cubs bring up Montero to pinch hit in the bottom half of the 8th, with two down and the bases loaded. On an 0-2 count, he cranks one into the right field seats for a grand slam, and blows the game open.
Now, there can be no doubt.
With the inconsistent, losing season Pineda recorded, we definitely got the short end of the Montero trade. A grand slam in a key playoff game in front of the home crowd?
