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

  • Thank you PHIL.

    Glad you avoided temps in the 100s.

    I remember you mentioning Dewees needng plenty of work in th IF. How are his OF instincts?

    Also, did see much of Satchel McElroy? Only Satchel I have heard about other than the "orignal" and one of Woody Allen's kids.

  • Hate to give the Mets credit, but they did everything right tonight in what had to be a very tough game for them to play. As Hollandsworth said on the Cubs post-game -- if you watched the game, you saw Mets players consoling Marlins players who were in tears during the game. Between that and the way Molina handled the Ross farewell -- maybe the Mets and Cardinal players aren't pure evil. Just the fans.

  • Amazing effort by Gordon -- truly remarkable.

  • Cubs get 100, KB gets 100, Hendricks gets below 2.00, Cards get absolutely destroyed by the Reds -- all good, other than some Rondon concern. Hopefully, he can get a few outings in this week and find his groove. Also, I guess Soler is still struggling with his right side. Hmmmm. Too bad Joe didn't let Addy bat with the bases loaded in the 7th -- great RBI opportunity.

    I assume all the relievers are on a set schedule this week, but it seems strange Chapman pitched back-to-back.

  • Barry Rozner article interviewing Greg Maddux (with comments on Kyle Hendricks).

    http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20160925/sports...

    "I like watching him pitch," Maddux said of Hendricks. "I like guys that rely on movement and location. I can relate to him. That's what I had to do. "I'd rather watch him pitch than some lefty throwing 95 mph."

  • in case it hasn't been mentioned yet, Twins are hiring Indians 32-year old Derick Falvey from the Cleveland Native Americans organization.

    Suppose McLeod could still be asked by another organization but likely staying put.
