This is a pitching rematch of the May 28th game in Wrigley, which the Cubs won 2-1 in 10 innings. May we see more of the same, today. The game is on FOX.

Comments

Can any good come of my trying to post a game thread?

Nope, as we just saw.

Fucking Theriot. Two botched caught stealings. How are you gonna defend him now, MikeC?

I really think besides Theriot's misplay, Lou should have pulled Zambrano for either the Kent or Martin at bat. Lou had talked about not extending Carlos yet he ends up throwing 107 pitches? Very strange indeed. Tomorrow's game becomes a big game now to clinch a winning road trip.

Lou did say that, but he also said that he was going to extend his starters on this turn through the rotation to try to protect the bullpen. I assume that's what he was trying to do today.

So are we going to see Marquis forced to go 7 tomorrow? Eeek the very thought of it gives me the dry heaves.

What a miserable set of games to be at. I probably shouldn't go since I'm causing such bad mojo but I don't think anything matters when Marquis pitches.

i sure am not overly confident about tomorrow.

Bah. Nine game winning streaks have made girls out of you all! We will bounce back tomorrow and take the split and a winning road trip.

You mean my impotence is due to our winning streak?!?! What a relief!

I better take some of that Cialis that they talk about on WGN all the time...

See it's always good to know that you couldn't get it up because of 9-game winning streak.

I remember hearing about a cure for that somewhere. It was somehow connected to baseball. Damn! If only I paid more attention.

Didnt see the game. But I will point to his .323 average, .404 OBP through the first 2 months of the season for cool 300k.

For sure, more good than harm when he plays. Or fuck it bring back Neifi....I loved the sub .300 OBP from him for 2-3 million a year. Those were good times, good times indeed.

Rumblings that WSCR's Mike North may be on his way out-

  • it's going to be hard to take down scherzer.

    kershaw is supposedly coming back soon, though he'll probably need a good amount of deep innings to match up with scherzer...probably too late at this point. tanner roark, bumgarner, and hendricks are probably going to steal some votes along with kershaw.

  • I absolutely love Javy's game, and I love the way Maddon changed the perception of him as a ballplayer, but I really wish he would just make the routine plays routinely. On the ground ball in the 9th, he made an unnecessarily fancy pick. He made the play, but tried the same thing last night and made an error.

  • How many wins does Kyle need for serious Cy Young consideration? Would 17 be enough if he leads the league in ERA? My goodness, what a season -- makes a Dartmouth alum proud.

  • hendricks WHIP drops to 0.98 over 159 innings after throwing 7ip 3h 1bb 4k, 0r/er

  • kuhl is a righty, not a lefty.

    i think maddon might think kuhl is a lefty, too. i wonder what the reasoning is for baez leading off vs a rightie.

  • "trout's one of the best, and at this point should probably win over donaldson (and should have more MVPs in the past, too), but the defensive aspect of valuing WAR still needs more tweaking...imo."

    that's from my 1st post. there's no suck involved in that. maybe with a few less posts about bullshit that point would have jumped out more.

  • crunch - you do know that, taking defense out of the equation, Trout has led the AL in wRC+ each of those years, right?

    And, if you want to complain about position adjustment (which would be serious #crunchsplaining), he's been in the top 3 in the AL in WC (not park/league/position adjusted). And the only players ahead of him (if there were any players ahead of him) in any of those years have been DHs or 1B that play lousy defense.

    But sure - Trout sucks (or at least isn't as good as WAR says). Because it factors in defense and position.

  • early tim tebow stuff rolling in...

    ran a 6.7 60yd (above average)...shagging flies in RF and showed off a rather impressive arm a few times, but average-at best on most of his throws...hit a few over the fence (both fields), fouled or weak contact a few...he's got a touch of power

    it'll be interesting to see who bites on this project, if anyone. he probably projected himself out of RF and into LF/1st because of his arm, but unless he can make that power work on a steady basis it'll be hard for him to play himself up anyone's system.
