OK, so maybe the Cubs didn’t drill Matt Holliday in the ear for blatantly spiking Castro in yesterday’s game. Maybe they do look like giant wusses on national TV after the talking heads on ESPN were pretty unanimous that Dempster should drill him in his first at-bat, and after Bobby Valentine pretty much laughed at Marlon Byrd for writing a blog post defending the play as clean. Whatever, he still had a pretty bad night.
Dempster proceeded to whiff Holliday three times before leaving and then Kerry Wood faced him and started an inning-ending double play in the 8th like so:
Fuck you, Holliday.
