Whatever happened to all the buzz about Theriot leading off and Soriano in the 2-hole...?
Eric Patterson with his sixth home run tonight.
Fontenot at second, Cedeno short, Patterson left field.
Good thing Hill regrouped. He almost lost the game in the first inning.
Peavy has 48 pitches through two innings. I hope we continue to wait him and drive up the count.
Soriano didn't take that advice, struck out swinging at two pitches way out of the strike zone.
recent cub teams would now bail out peavy with a 5 pitch inning. let's see...
rich hill - welcome back to earth! yikes.
eli:"rich hill - welcome back to earth! yikes."
We all knew it was coming I guess. Marquis and Lilly are soon to follow. We couldn't even be a .500 team with those 3 starting pitchers pitching way above their heads. Not a good sign.
if soriano can't catch up with fastballs now, i can't wait to see how he handles them in 5 years!
I feel sick.
I just ready the articles on Cubs.com about all the new changes. I really don't understand most of them. They reak of desperation and not knowing your own players. What was Lou doing during ST??
This team looks like a puzzle that has pieces that just don't fit or are being jammed in trying to fit or the person putting the puzzle together doesn't understand the pieces.
What a clusterf***!!!
anotehr nice effort thus far from Jones. thank god we have his stabilizing veteran presence in the clubhouse.
its almost hard to believe that Jones is hitting .375 with RISP with 2 outs 9/24 with 3 walks and 12 RBI
any idea what the close and late breakout is for jones and RISP 2-outs?
square pegs trying to fit into round holes
in games close and late he is hitting .269 with a OBP of .296 with 2 RBI
Take the wife to a chick flick tonite and I miss the second coming
Dale Sveum: "Shit. Shit shit shit. SHIT."
The pitcher's immediate reaction to Soler's 2nd HR is somehow indescribably funny to me ... He didn't know how to react and just kinda puffed out his chest and walked toward home plate. Priceless.
Little guy has some pop! First ML HR batting right-handed.
this team is going to be frightening next year
alcantara joins in on the fun with a HR.
Rizzo must be like - um - get me back on the field.
Cubs fans we might be having a fun decade or so of baseball starting to peek around the corner.
Apparently baseball isn't as difficult as some people make it out to be.
Definitely an encouraging AB for Baez - seemed to have dialed it down just a little bit there ... and still ropes a double.
That reminded me of that old cartoon where the ball is screaming as it flies out of the yard. Good god.
looked like a Mcgwire bomb there
that one was destroyed. both homers tonight were no-doubt HR's in any park.
3-3...with a walk, too.
I'm more impressed that he managed to work the count from 0-2 to 2-2 before lining into the gap
