Shot Of The Night is Off Base Percentage's toast to a player who had an exceptionally good or bad night. There's always a reason to drink.
Shot of the night is back after a quick stint in rehab. It totally thinks it can quit whenever it wants now. Sorry for the shaky week gang, we should be back to normal by Monday. Tonight's shot of the night is a Big Apple: 2 oz vodka, fill with apple juice, 1 tsp green creme de menthe and it's in honor of David Wright.
David Wright had a down season last year but has already passed his WAR from last season (3.7-3.4) and seems to be back on his young Hall of Fame path. Wright went 3-4 with 2 home runs and 5 RBI, albeit in a losing effort against the D-Backs. If he needs to do some finger pointing, it should be directed at Raul Valdes who managed to go 0 innings while serving up 4 runs on 4 hits. That's right Raul, your ERA for the evening was 7∞. *sigh, 7 infinity looked so much better in my head than in HTML*
Dishonorable Mention: Andrew Cashner
Cashner was unimpressed by Raul Valdes' stat line. Cashner tossed his own 0 inning gem giving up 6 runs on 6 hits. He was then thoroughly mocked by his fellow Cub reliever Sean Marshall who gave up 5 runs on 5 hits but at least recorded 2 outs. When reached for comment/awoken from his nap, Lou Piniella said, "No, I really can't tell the difference between Dr. Pepper and Diet Dr. Pepper."
