Tired of sitting and watching the Cubs sleepwalk through game after game, Henry Blanco has decided to do something about it. In three starts this week, White is the only Cub providing any offense, with a pair of homers and six RBI in those starts. Hank is starting because Michael Barrett is experiencing empathy pains from Albert Pujols’ HGH induced sciatica. Hank will get even more starts when Barrett finally serves his suspension for doing what every American has always wanted to do. Punch AJ Pierzynski in the face.
The Cubs, catching speed in their aggressive pursuit of Pissburgh in the NL Central basement have spurred the normally laconic White into action.
He’s now just hoping to play well enough to get traded to a contender. Or the Devil Rays, or the Royals. Pretty much anybody but the Cubs.
