If you follow baseball closely enough, you may be familiar with “the inverted W,” a term that refers to the “M” shape some pitchers’ make during their throwing motion. Kind of like this:
There may be a good reason why this isn’t simply called “the M,” but if there is, I’m not aware of it. I suppose if you flipped this image upside down it might look more like a “W” than it does an “M” right now. Maybe.
I had all this in mind when I decided to call this thing “The Inverted M” for equally flimsy reasons. This a Cubs blog, and I wanted an excuse to put the “W” flag at the top of it.
I plan on writing whatever I want about the Cubs on this site a few times a week. If you want to tell me what a good job I’m doing, feel free to let me know. If you want to tell me what a terrible job I’m doing, feel free to let me know.
