NEIFI! Update

They've updated the All-Star voting and our boy NEIFI! is still off the radar. What are you people waiting for? Spread the word! I know some of you have season tickets, bring a sign, do what it takes. NEIFI! needs you!!! At the moment, here is where our Cubbies stand.... 1B - Derrek Lee (2nd place - 209,356 votes behind Albert Pujols) 2B - Todd Walker (4th place - 456,209 behind Jeff Kent) SS - Nomar Garciaparra(3rd place - 37,728 behind Cezar Izturis) 3B - Aramis Ramirez (2nd place - 266,216 behind Scott Rolen) C - Michael Barrett (3rd place - 405,864 behind Mike Piazza) OF - Corey Patterson (10th place) and Jeromy Burnitz (13th place) By the way, Michael Barrett is currently leading all NL catchers in OPS, although he doesn't have enough at-bats to technically qualify. Aramis is 4th in OPS among 3rd basemen behind Morgan Ensberg, David Wright and just behind Troy Glaus. So go vote NEIFI!, Stud-Lee, Aramis and Barrett. It's your duty as a Cubs fan.

"Stud-Lee" ... way too gay.

Hi, long time reader of the site, first time posting. I have tickets to 3 Cubs Games for the 4th of July Weekend.

Thursday June 30th Sec. 523 Row 8 $14 Each 2Tix
Friday July 1st Sec 538 Row 1 $17 Each 2Tix
Saturday July 2nd Sec 229 Row 19 $30 Each 2 Tix

I am selling these tickets for face value, my original plan was a Cubs Road Trip, but a family commitment came up so i'm stuck waiting until the Cubs visit Philly in August to see the cubs in person. If you are interested in any of these seats or have any questions; please feel free to email me at [email protected].

Ok, I realize that Neifi has played above everyone's expectations and this has been especially important considering the injury to Nomar. However, Neifi is not an all-star. He is currently sixth in the NL in VORP at SS (including the injured Barmes) and he has been streaky all season at the bat. His defense has been good, but he has also muffed some important plays. He is now 4 for his last 29, with 1 BB in that space of times and his OBP is .325. The fact that Baker has Perez and Patterson batting 1-2 in front of Lee precludes any talk of Baker as a manager of any consequence greater than John McGraw's corpse.

I'll spear your eye with a toothpick, son.

  • Also -- despite losing 6 of their last 10, the Cubs picked up a game on both STL and PIT during that period. Weird, given that they swept PIT and were swept by STL.

  • Also, I'd like to know if there are numbers to back up my suspicion that there are a lot more fast starts than late June romps. This seems like a time where everybody not named Willson Contreras is looking a little tired and/or banged up a bit.

    For once, the Cubs got off to a fast start. Seems like I've been waiting for that for 50 years.Everybody is really gunning for this team, too. It's their playoffs.

  • He reminds me of a little of a young guy currently on the Cubs' DL, who is also tank-like in appearance.

  • Yep...sort of. Matheny says Rosenthal will no longer pitch the 9th, and they will mix/match Oh, Siegrist and Broxton.

  • Duane Underwood now 0-5 with a 5.44 ERA for Tenn. Urp. Warren not sharp at Iowa tonight. When will Cease and Hudson be ready?

    On a positive note, Jiminez with his 10th HR tonight. He has a .924 OPS -- the only player in the league with an OPS over .900. Leads the lead in 2B, SLG and OPS, tied for the league lead in HR and 3rd in Avg. Nice!

  • - The pressure of going for the regular-season wins record is now gone.
    - Joe will come up with more wacky dress-up ideas for the team to wear after they lose their next get-away game.
    - There is more clarity on Spencer Patton.
    - We play the Reds next. They aren't very good.
    - We'll have at least a 9 game lead after today.
    EDIT: - Contreras looks like the real deal.

    Other than that, not much -- nasty stretch. Two ugly losses in the last 4 games.
    Ugh -- give Lackey a 4-1 lead, you hope for better.
