My summer is over.
At least, my summer as it relates to Major League Baseball is done.
I blame Neal Huntington and Clint Hurdle. They are the general manager and manager (respectively) of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
With my Cubbies swirling the drain, I have been pulling for the Pittsburghers to take the NL Central. Of course, any of the other teams in that division are preferable to the hated Cardinals of St. Louis.
