Randy Wells' Monty Python act.
Oh Randy Wells.
You can't do this any more, brother...
Gordon Whittenmyer tweeted, "Wells takes a no-hitter into fourth inning of what could be his last start. Dempster (quad) back Thurs."
And then the next tweet says, "...Never mind."
Wells was sailing along, and then suddenly in the 4th he gave up a double to Hunter Pence, a walk to Thome, a groundout, a stolen base, a walk to Nix, a single to Ruiz, a pop out, a walk to pitcher Joe Blanton, and then a double to Jimmy Rollins.
Two doubles, a single, and 4 runs - all in one inning.
Oh, and 3 walks.
Made me think of the Ministry of Silly Walks by Monty Python.
I am unclear on how to post a video here, but if you're too young to remember just google it.
Anyway, Cubs lose 2-5 to the Philadelphia Phillies.
If Wells does indeed go back to Iowa, hopefully he can work on those silly walks.
Get that fixed, it'll be good for the Cubs whether he remains one or not.
Its not official until AZ Phil adds him to the Cubs Depth Chart!
Just freakin love it!

This from a Kiley McDaniel chat a couple weeks ago...
"Comment From Wrenzie
Who has more ceiling between Yusniel Diaz or Eddy Julio Martinez?
Arizona Phil 7 hours 23 min ago"
neat. 41 years old and damn close to 3000 hits.

take that giants
TEX takes the opening game from TOR (@TOR) 5-3.
Ride the Kid Magic! Schwarber hadn't homered in a long time before last night.
Greg Maddux was 8-18 in his rookie season. Kyle has the 8 wins down pat.
Think Baby Maddux.
Prof. Harold Hill's THINK system at work.
Kyle is on the far left.
Just tweeted via Jesse Rogers: Hendricks starting Game 2. Wow. Just wow.
That was good!
