Cubs @ Giants Series Preview

spcubsgiants Hopefully the Giants bring another fine defensive effort as they did at Wrigley. Is that Rodriguez catcher still around?

FIP?

Rory, here's a quick explanation of FIP, DIPS and DICE.

If Rich Hill faces Barry Zito are we risking an implosion of the universe, like if Young Marty McFly accidentally crossed paths with Old Marty McFly in Back to the Future II?

On another note, with a sweep of the Giants, the Cubs would equal their 2006 win total.

In case this wasn't posted last thread - Cubs/Cards make up game: 9/10/07, 2:20 start

2:20? CST or EST?

Eesh, we drew some tough SP matchups.

Go Cubs!

2:20 CST.

Cards play at D-Backs the afternoon before. Cubs are at Pitt for a 1:30 hit.

I think the FIP question comes up just about every time you use it, doesn't it Rob G.?

just the last two...

Yes, I too don't like these pitching matchups at all.

Glad to see you posting Carlos.

Yes, indeed.

I pictured Carlos standing on some shoreline in Mexico as a cat-5 hurricane slowly rolls in... Carlos holds up his Fontenot bobblehead and the cat-5 dwindles to a cat-1 out of fear of the Godenot.

haha

Pujols hits into a bases loaded double play 6-4-3, end 3rd, Fish 1-0

not much impact on the Cubs but Cole Hamels injures his elbow and will miss a start or more

will carlos ever get his 15????

Cabrera goes yard, 2-0 Marlins

game thread up

Miggy the Fish hooks one, 2-0

I thought FIP, DIPS and DICE were the three cons in The Grifters.

Cincy beats Atlanta 8-7. They are on a bit of a roll.

Fish 8 LOB through 6.

Pujols Homer - Solo in 4 straight games

No offense but I don't think 1 or 2 Rocky Cherry appearances are worth losing Marshall for the playoffs.

=======================

CARMEN F: But you understand that Sean Marshall wouldn't be lost for the playoffs even if he's not on the 25-man roster as of 8/31, right? He can replace any Cubs player on the 15-day or 60-day DL (Prior, Guzman, Novoa, or Pagan). In fact, because they have four players on the DL, the Cubs could add as many as four players to their post-season roster who were not on the 25-man roster as of 8/31. That's why it's called "roster shenagians."
