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 was a nice barehand pick-up but he was close enough to 1st where he could underhand the ball to Bryant. The trouble he's had has been with the overhand throw. He's definitely working on it, but I don't know if that play was a good example of progress made.

  • Phil, have you heard anything about the condition of Oscar De La Cruz's elbow? Has there been talk of a time table? Is he throwing?

  • i was distracted for most of the game and also missed the first few innings.

    but yeah, any time he makes a good fielding+throwing play on D it's worthy of praise and a trip to pizza hut for a personal pan pizza and $1 worth of songs on the juke box.

    seriously, i'll take it.

  • BTW, CRUNCH, Lester made a nice bh pick-up and toss to Bryant. Did you catch it?

    He's been workin' on the D!

  • Ach - I really only saw it quickly and thought that's where it it. No matter - he crushed it and the video board people did not have to repair the panels from what I saw!

  • Totally agree with that re Soler, whereas Bryant seems to get the close call (so far) this year.

    Good to see Baez get a couple knocks today - been awhile

  • that works too...there wasnt a good CSN replay...was going off whatever len or jd (dont remember) said.

  • I was there. From what I saw it was upper third of the scoreboard

    The E-Man 16 hours 7 min ago view
  • No I have been thinking actually that he seems to lead the Cubs with balls called strikes all year. He really shouldn't be expanding his zone to swing at many of those either because it wouldn't lead to anything good. He's seeing the ball well though so hopefully it'll even out.

  • So why don't the umps like Soler, or am I just imagining it?

    Rob Richardson 17 hours 16 min ago view

  • this team is full of horrible walkup music...rizzo uses 'marky mark and the funky bunch' more than he should...which is any at all.

    d.ross uses alphaville 'forever young' because lulz.

    lastella was using (still might be) 'oh what a night' by the four seasons.

    turrible turrible stuff.
