Ebb and flow

Here's beautiful part No. 3,482 about baseball, specifically Major League Baseball -- the ebb and flow of a season.

Right now, there's a certain Cubs fan in this office who is puffing his chest out and decrying his favorite team the hottest team in the majors. And, right now, he's right.

But that doesn't guarantee them anything. Being the hottest team on July 14 is like being the best athlete as a 12-year-old -- it's nice at the time, but it doesn't always portend future success.

Yes, the Cubs are hot right now. Yes, they've turned Houston into a pinata. Yes, they'd be a team to be reckoned with in the playffs. Right now.

For every run like the Cubs are on now, however, there usually is an opposite run. It happens for all 30 teams at least once or twice a season.

No team can be a metronome for 162 games. It defies physical and mental abilities. And, yet, it shows exactly why this is such a beautiful game.
