Comments

For those who were discussing it earlier: Here's the 2005 announcement and drawings of the proposed new construction.

So far we've got the new field and the new bleachers.

Barring an act of God, there shall be recappage. Stop by parachat and abuse me.

Oh good! Gentlemen start your engines.

I think we're tied with Anaheim in losses. Don't feel like looking it up. I just got a sudden re-angering over getting Uggla'ed in the ASG. That son of a bitch.

Hey -- he's Prince Fielder, not Teddy Fucking Ballgame.

Somebody get that fat shit out.

Open casting call for the role of "major league caliber middle reliever" will be held tomorrow at 9am.

Tell your friends.

Chad -- we need you!

I'm more of an middle infielder my trade. I can throw some good junk, but I can't really dial it up much past 70.

Never thought I would say this when the trade was made...but Chad Gaudin if healthy will be very useful in the playoffs. He may even be the 'key' to the bullpen...sad thought, but after Wood and Marmol everything is pretty shaky. Cotts comes in as your 3rd best reliever.

espn was blacked out in my area had to listen
to the brewers network on fox north i think it is
the announcers werent bad, but every inning they missed the first
pitch and one inning they missed the first 2 batters but overall
a waste of my time, dont think guzman did anything to secure his
playoff presence.

  • Javy's grunge dive into the stands for the popup was awesome - the hitting into the double play not so much

  • everyone but heyward with a hit and a 3 run lead with coghlan on 3rd through 5 batters. hell yeah.

    okay, this is just silly. 19 pitches in, 1 out, 4 runs in, men on 1st and 2nd...hendricks up to bunt.

    ...and almora contributes the final out. that was a fun inning.

    also, there's a lot of cubs fans in the park tonight.

  • "Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Friday that Anthony Rizzo (back) is feeling better and it's "possible" the first baseman could return to the lineup Saturday."

  • Maddon shore isn't afraid to bat a rookie 4th in the order.

  • Line-up shakeup, going all-2015 with pitcher batting 8th, Bryant 2nd

    J-Hey, Bryant 1B, Zobrist, Willson, Coghlan, Baez 3B, Russell, Hendricks, Almora

    Eric S 8 hours 14 min ago view
  • The Cubs are currently down Schwarber, Fowler, Soler, and Rizzo and Montero appear to be day-to-day. Maybe not surprising that they are struggling a bit as they rely more than expected on Baez, Russell, Almora, Contreras, and Szczur to provide offensive value.

  • Joe: "I loved the way we brought it today, man. We'll take this every night and win a lot of ballgames like that. Losing 4 in a row...that's nothin'."
