The moon orbits the earth. The earth orbits the sun. As for what the sun orbits....nobody knows. But on this sunny afternoon at Wrigley Field, a place they tend to play a lot of day baseball, the sun got in Starlin Castro's eyes.
The Cubs took an old-fashioned whipping today, and manager Mike Quade traces the whole thing back to Castro's misadventure in the first inning:
We've got to stop. Ball's in the sun, we've got to communicate. Cassie thought he had that all the way. I look back at this whole game to that play. The sun's been in the same damn spot for however long Wrigley Field's been here.
If only there were some kind of brilliant thinker on a level with Copernicus who could calculate how long Wrigley Field has been there. But alas, it's turtles all the way down.
That's that. You do you.
