Thursday Means Camp Day

Thursday was "Circus Day" on The Mickey Mouse Club, but Thursdays are "Camp Day" for the Cubs Arizona Instructional League team.   While some of you might think "Camp Day" is a day where the coaches take the Cubs players on a trip to the zoo or to the local water park, that's not exactly what it is. Actually, "Camp Day" is a day where the team has a three-hour morning work-out with instruction followed by a four-inning intra-squad game. There are no professional umpires hired for the intrasquad games, so the game is umpired by one of the Cubs coaches. Also, innings can be extended beyond three outs if a pitcher needs to throw more pitches, or (conversely) an inning can be terminated early (before there are three outs) if the pitcher has reached his pitch limit for that inning (usually a maximum of 15-20 pitches per-inning). Here is today's box score: LINEUPS: SQUAD "A" 1. Jonathan Wyatt, LF (0-2) 2. Marwin Gonzalez, SS (1-2) 3. Marquez Smith, 2B (0-2) 4. Josh Donaldson, DH #1 (1-2, 2B) 5. Josh Lansford, DH #2 (1-2, 2B) 6. Kyler Burke, RF (0-1) 7. Ty Wright, CF (0-1) 8. Jovan Rosa, 3B (0-1) 9. Carlos Perez, C (0-1) 10. Bryan Jost, 1B (0-1) SQUAD "B" 1. Leon Johnson, CF (0-1, R, BB, 2 SB) 2. Darwin Barney, SS (0-1, R, BB, SB) 3. Tony Thomas, DH #1 (1-2, 2B, 2 RBI, K) 4. Steve Clevenger, DH #2 (0-1) 5. Brandon Guyer, LF (0-0, BB) 6. Josh Vitters, 3B (0-1, K) 7. Mark Reed, C (0-1) 8. Gian Guzman, 2B (0-1) 9. Cliff Andersen, RF (1-1) 10. Drew Rundle, 1B (0-1) PITCHERS: SQUAD "A" 1. Marcus Hatley - 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K (29 pitches) 2. Casey Lambert - 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K (12 pitches) 3. Mark Pawelek - 0.1 IP, 1 H, 2 R (2 ER) 2 BB, 0 K (18 pitches) SQUAD "B" 1. Marco Tovar - 3.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K (33 pitches) 2. Jordan Latham - 0.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 WP (13 pitches) NO ERRORS CATCHERS DEFENSE: Carlos Perez 0-3 CS OUTFIELD ASSIST: Cliff Andersen (doubled runner off 2nd base 9-6 after making diving catch on a line drive)

  • Lackey finishes with a 3.35 ERA. Currently good for 13th in the NL. Not bad for a guy signed to be a #3 starter in a 15-team league.

    He is also 6th in WHIP. Pretty amazing: Cubs have the #2, #3, #5 and #6 starters in WHIP.

  • Completely meaningless game, but Pena striking out Sean the Turd to with the bases loaded was very fun.

    Other than one bad game in SD, Pena has been very good. Even with that game, 9.0 IP, 13 K, 0.89 WHIP.

  • Just looked up Grimm's stats -- after a great run, he gave up 2 runs vs. MIL then didn't pitch for 10 days. Don't remember why?

  • rare air though if he can keep it under 2. Sounds like Maddon already made up his mind though and Hendricks seems like the sort that would want to earn it. Guessing he gets a quick hook if he's still under 2 after 5 innings.

    Fwiw, he can give up 1 ER in 5 innings (or more) and still be under 2. If he gives up 2 ER, he would need throw 9 IP to keep it under 2. 1 ER in 4 IP would give him an ERA of exactly 2.

    In terms of WAR, it's still Scherzer by a lot (6.4), then Cueto (5.6), Lester (5.5), Kershaw (5.5), Roark (5.4), and then Hendricks (5.1)

  • Boring lineup tonight in terms of guys trying to reach milestones -- no KB (40 HR), Addy (100 RBI) or JHey (can he keep it going?), and Lackey isn't really going for anything, plus the team has already reached 100 wins. I get the "rest" thing, although they will have 4 days off after Sunday, but....bleh.
