Yeah it was the Cubs, but to do it when your team had to have it, to do it when the manager’s job may be on the line, to do it when your first start didn’t go well, to do it with your family watching in a stadium you dreamed about pitching in…that’s grit, that’s guts, that’s circumference.
We will see where it goes from here for Bolsinger but for a day, with all due respect to Colin Kaepernick, he was the man.
