The magic number is 8, just like every other division leader in the NL - spooky. Happy to see Lou take my advice and keep the same lineup versus a lefty.

That, right there, is a lineup that should be able to mash lefties.


Is that three in a row for Soto?

Ronny Cedeno is four for ten since being recalled at the beginning of the month.

His only XBH was a seventh-inning double that ruined Gorzelanny's bid for a shutout on September 7th (Pirates 6, Cubs 1).

The double was down the line in right. Cedeno hasn't shown any pop yet, but it's in there somewhere (six HRs in one week at Iowa).

Cedeno is demonstrating an improved ability to lay off pitches that are just outside with two strikes--a big deal for him.

Monroe in CF scares me. Hopefully he'll mash a little cause I don't see him getting it down in the field.

A-Ram!!! Again!

The Pirates are not very good.




With Sam Fuld making that catch to end the top of the seventh, they should have let AZ Phil sing Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

He's going to be Slammin' Sammy Fuld pretty soon. That's twice in a week he's slammed into a wall.

You gotta read this quote that Hendry said:

"In September 2007, the Chicago Cubs called up Fuld to the major league team.[8] "Fuld is a great baserunner, excellent defender, a tough kid," Cubs General Manager Jim Hendry said at the time of Fuld's call-up. "He's a run-through-the-wall-for-you guy."[9]"

Listening to the radio broadcast online, and looking forward to seeing these highlights later. Sounds like Fuld's play was something else.

It definitely was Rich.

Fkn Dempster.

Btw, Fuld, sir, that's brick underneath the ivy.


Fuld's catch gave me goosebumps...seriously.


MIL game on Fox? Sweet.

I am a diehard Cubs fan from Illinois here at Marquette University in Milwaukee, and I absolutely love rubbing it in the Brewer fan's faces!

Fox is showing Mets/Marlins where I'm at. Ugh.

Make that magic number 6 :)
