Game 44 Thread / Cubs @ Padres (2 of 3)

Return to Homepage


The - Riot on the bench tonight...

Soriano, Pagan, DLee, ARam, Barrett, Orange Guy, Derosa, Izzy & Marshall

vs. Giles, Cruz, Cameron, Gonzalez, Greene, Baird, Kouzmanoff, Sledge & Wells

heres hoping the orange guy drives in some runs
i would think we can hit wells

In the last 2 weeks Theriot is hitting .254 with 6 runs scored, 3 RBIs, and 2 SBs.

Let him sit.

I forgot to mention the .185 AVG for the last week.

Neil Cotts started and pitched the first 3 inings for the I-Cubs tonight. 1 hit, no runs, no walks and 2K's.

Sounds good, but he problem wasn't getting out AAA hitters...

his problem...

on the pregame radio interview with Santo, Lou said it was hard incorporating the three lefty's that were in the bullpen into action.

translation: they all sucked so much it was tough to figure out which to demote, so the last guy to screw up got to go to Iowa.

...annnnd Marshall walks the first batter he faces.

Amazing. Simply amazing.

even Jose Cruz Jr can hit behind runners. the cubs should try that occasionally.

DAVE: I heard Murton stole a base tonight???

Maybe he does have above average speed?

wow... way to bring up a discussion that was dead a few days ago...

This is TCR, discussions NEVER die....

It's his eighth career steal, man. Seriously.

Murton doubled off 2nd on a bloop to RF...apparently, he's not speedy enough to make up for lousy baserunning.

That base was stolen on Wells. Murton was able to read the high leg kick.

But that orange hair sure makes him look fast.

thanks Cesar...that wasn't too predictable.

The guy's created 5 outs in 3 at-bats tonight! Perhaps his little mini-hit-streak was a deceptive illusion...PLEASE pinch-hit Riot for Marshall next inning and get Izzy out of there in case his spot comes around again in an important situation!

The TURD-is!

GREAT AB, dumbshit!

Way to play for the TEAM!

Ugh, why not pinch hit The Riot in that basesloaded situation. All Neifi, er, IzTurdis, does is slap at the ball. Outfield plays at coed softball girl depth for him. Booooooo.

i mean talk about that HR being fait accompli right on the heels of suckturis's awesome AB.

this team earns its losses that's for sure.

blame this one on are piece of shortstop

yes. "ARE piece of shortstop"

Or - you can do the right thing and blame HENDRY for the "Gold Glover!"

what a bunch of gutless pukes this team is...

Or - you can do the right thing and blame HENDRY for the “Gold Glover!”

I thought Maddux approved that trade to "help" the Cubs...

Screw you Izzy, go somewhere and die.

Hey, it's Lou playing Izzy every day no matter what. I better hear that Theriot was hurt tonight.

I was following on Gameday and want to make sure: did Jacque Jones REALLY try to pull an outside pitch on 3-2 with the game on the line? Really? We're paying this guy actual money to put our jersey on?

(The loss isn't necessarily his fault, but this is just another example of Jacque not knowing how to play the game right)

This series is over. Maybe the Cubs can score another run tomorrow night.

Also, when the game is on the line, you bring in someone like Ward who has proven he can PH vs Jones, who is in a major slump.

Hey CT Steve:
Soriano 6/38, .158 avg
Barrett 7/37, .189 avg
DeRosa: 3/19, .158 avg

It's not like this team has been tearing the cover off the ball the last 2 weeks.
