Even Wade Miller Should Be Okay Today

Here's the way it works: every degree over 50 is good for 1.5 runs. Sunday gametime temp--50; runs scored--0. Monday gametime temp--58; runs scored--12. Tuesday gametime temp (forecast)--62; runs scored (forecast)--18.

FYI, our starters performances:

G1 -- 5.0 IP, 5 ER, 5 BB, 2 K
G2 -- 7.0 IP, 1 ER, 1 BB, 9 K
G3 -- 6.0 IP, 1 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
G4 -- 7.0 IP, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K
G5 -- 7.0 IP, 3 ER, 2 BB, 6 K
G6 -- 4.0 IP, 6 ER, 2 BB, 0 K
G7 -- 6.0 IP, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
G8 -- 5.0 IP, 3 ER, 4 BB, 3 K
G9 -- 4.0 IP, 6 ER, 4 BB, 2 K
G10 -- 7.0 IP, 0 ER, 4 BB, 5 K
G11 -- 6.0 IP, 1 ER, 1 BB, 10 K
G12 -- 6.0 IP, 1 ER, 4 BB, 5 K

I count 8 out of 12 starts, quality starts. 9, if you consider 5.0 IP, 3 ER a quality start.

Pie is up?

Road to Wrigley has the scoop for you guys, Felix Pie will be in Chicago today...

A highly placed source with knowledge of the situation has confirmed that fans in Chicago are going to get their first look at the long-awaited Pie when he is called up by the Cubs in the wake of last night’s injury to Alfonso Soriano.

So does this mean Soriano is headed for the DL?
At the end of the day, when Soriano is healthy, this could mean the end for Jacque Jones.

I posted on the previous thread that Bruce Levine has been reporting this recall of Pie all morning. According to Levine, if Soriano is NOT placed on the DL a pitcher will be moved. Lou is obviously prepared to go with 11 pitchers.

When Soriano returns, this probably paves the way for Jones to be traded unless Pie tanks in the next 10 days. Pie was hitting .444 in 11 games with an OBA of .532 (9 BB/ 5 SO).

Looking at the link you provide, the only evidence for your claim is a single anonymous source.

We'll post news of Pie when we can get independent, credible confirmation.

Love the weather analysis, Cubnut!

I scooped you all though by like 10 hours.

Let the chips fall:

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. If Pie holds his own, I can very easily see him sticking in CF, with Soriano moving to LF when he returns from his injury/DL, in part to ease the load on his legs. That could make the Murton in RF experiment even more interesting. Not sure where this leaves Floyd though.

Did Soriano play any RF in the spring?

And with Chicago Tribune confirming it, we've posted it. Thanks for the link, Neal - it wasn't there five minutes ago when I checked.

If Pie is up, that isn't good news about Soriano.

Means he is likely headed to the DL.

Pie and his .400's average is nice and all, but there's a big difference between the Pacific Coast League and the big leagues. You thought Jones took some ugly hacks, consider me skeptical. I bat him 8th.

BTW, Pie sounds like a good guy and all, I hope I'm wrong.

the first couple weeks are usually kind to new hitters imo, no real advance scouting reports or familiarity with the holes in his swings.

Go Pie....don't give them a reason to send you back down.

Yeah Transmission, but our single anonymous source was confirming what levine was saying on radio...for your future reference we are credentialed @ iowa & have solid sources there

    Baez lucky to not have hurt his hand with headfirst slide on play at plate in 12th inning.

    Javier Baez is the opposite of that.

  • on the wild pitch thing, did they really call that a wild pitch on Jansen that Heyward scored on Friday? If so, I don't know what a passed ball is anymore.

  • Let's see -- up 3-0, at home, Jake on the mound annnnd....compare and contrast 2015 to 2016. Bleh.

    Hopefully, the Pirates will uncork a series of 9th inning wild pitches.

    @BNightengale: Former #MLB pitcher Dan Haren will be throwing to Tim Tebow tomorrow during his tryout in LA, he announced.

     [email protected](dan haren): @BNightengale nope, I was offered the opportunity and declined.

     @ithrow88 Oh and memo to my agent, @bvanwagenen: Pitching to Tim Tebow tomorrow DOES NOT count as getting me a real job offer.

  • the factual correction on your mistakes on your post that I barely bothered to read the first time because it had nothing to do with anything I wanted to talk about is indeed a sign of my degenerative brain condition. I appreciate the safety tip and will be looking into with extreme urgency now.

  • Fwiw, Billy Hamilton's actual WAR numbers that relate to the ones that I posted for Mike Trout are:

    • 2014: 2.5
    • 2015: 1.0
    • 2016: 2.6

    But by all means #crunchsplain on the stupidity of WAR while exaggerating your points. I can't wait to read more.
