Gameday Open Thread / Cubs @ Angels

The Angels once again, lefty Joe Saunders goes for them, the Cubs with Jason Marquis on the mound.

Comments

Soriano, CF
Jones, RF
Lee, 1B
Ramirez, 3B
Murton, LF
Floyd, DH
Cedeno, SS
Blanco, C
Theriot, 2B

btw, game is on ESPN radio here in L.A., but not on XM radio even though the home team is carrying it. Does that sound fair?

Joe "Cy" Saunders so far...2 IP, 5 Ground Outs...1 K

Marquis with a homer to Vlad

Jorge Julio to Marlins for Yusmeiro Petit...

Ronny Cedeno....sparkplug.

8 GB - 3 FO for Marquis through 4.

Vlad and Garrett owning him today though...

Nice running by Lee to score from 1st

Nice little 2 out rally by Lee, ARam and Murton

Hey... this Lee guy is pretty good, eh? Now hitting .500.

Ugh... more wordpress errors and comments not updating in the permalink.

How bad is Neil Cotts at holding runners on? 2 SB's in one inning with Blanco behind the plate and he's a lefty.

okay one was third base by GM Jr...but still. This being an AL team that knows him, that doesn't bode well.

Cherry not quite ready to hand the gig to Guzman quite yet...

1.1 IP, 3 H, 3 K, 0 BB, 1 unearned run

Rough day for Theriot at 2B today. Timely hitting by the Cubs for the most part today.

  • LOLLYGAGGERS!

  • You lollygag the ball around the infield. You lollygag your way down to first. You lollygag in and out of the dugout. You know what that makes you? Larry!

  • Its too bad Warren didnt get to pitch. He would have saved us.

  • Whoa -- that Contreras play in the 8th looked too much like a "Schwarber" -- nearly crashed into the wall going full speed, with Heyward doing the same.

    New rule: if you are a catcher playing LF, and find yourself sprinting after a fly ball in the gap -- stop, let the CF go after it and get ready to play it off the wall.

  • Cubs have no spark and no life. Pretty boring to watch these days.

  • I thought trips to Miami were supposed to be fun. This one sucked.

    The bottom half of the bullpen now turns close games into blowout losses. Not good.

    Once Fowler went to the DL, the team went into the tank. Wonder if he'll get any love this offseason? Probably not.

  • 6IP, 2ER. The last one scored because of another botched Zobrist DP turn.

    And now, a bad throw by KB. Sloppy.

  • What is it with Hammel always starting well and sucking after a couple months?

    The E-Man 8 hours 18 min ago view
  • Ahhh...sad. Lke a few of you here, I saw him play during the '69-'71 seasons. He was the "hot Zobrist" for the club in August/September of '69 while everyone else was fizzling out...

  • I predict: "They will play hard and if they give the same effort every day, they'll win a lot of games."

  • OK, boys -- find a way to win today.

  • There's some BA is missing too, here's all signing bonus BA doesn't have some:

    -6 Hockin $241,000 (slot price), 7 Cruz $75,000 (saved $110,00), 8 Ridlings $120,000 (saved $53,800), 9 Robinson $30,000 (saved $132,300), so far the Cubs have saved an extra $297,100

  • 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.
