Cubs Ace Returns with Bat

(Click on the thumbnail for the full size image)

Just when you think it couldn't get worse, the Cubs get absolutely spanked by the worst team in baseball at home.The wind appeared to be howling straight out tonight and the Cubs managed 6 runs, Josh Willingham managed 6 RBI's all by himself, including 2 HR's, 5 Runs scored and a 4 for 4 night with a walk. Z did hit a home run though (mild applause) and Milton Bradley went 4 for 4 himself with a home run and a walk and then decided it was another good moment to take some frustration out on the fans.

"It's hard to be comfortable when you don't get a hit, you get booed
every time," Bradley said. "When I go home and look in the mirror, I
like what I see. My family's there, and I have people I can talk to who
are supportive in spite of everything and all the adversity and hatred
you face on a daily basis. I'll be all right. I always have." 

A bunch of other fun news after the jump...

  • Per Fangraphs...

    Bryant took over NL lead in WAR after yesterday's effort. 3.9. Rizzo's at 2.8 and 8th in the league. Rizzo actually with better offensive numbers (161 wRC+ versus 146 for Bryant), but Bryant gets a good bump because of defense and position(s) played.

    Fowler with a 2.8 WAR as well (9th), Zobrist with a 2.7 (14th).

    M. Carpenter leads NL with 163 wRC+ just ahead of Rizzo who is 2nd.

  • yes. I was at the Sean Marshall game in LF. Lou Piniella was managing. StL won 4-2, so I guess it didn't help but it was zany. Soriano/Reed Johnson and Marshall were the LF's.

    On a 6 degrees of separation note: Cubs got Travis Wood in the trade that sent Sean Marshall to Cincy.

  • Can a pitcher get more than one hold in a game? Or a Win and a save?

  • Didn't they do this sort of thing with Sean Marshall years back? Sticking him in LF to save him to face others, but without a pitcher replacing him in LF.

  • Maddon is over-managing the shit out of this game.

    Rob G. 4 hours 8 min ago view
  • yeah. ...or not...

    i was a bit more confused why the guy who gave up a HR to votto last night was facing him with 2 men on.

    ...now that wood is coming in to pitch the following inning, the whole thing gets weirder. so like, okay.

  • Javy 0-6. At least he's consistent.

  • Sweet play.

    What's with the Travis Wood stuff? Is it because he pitched the last 2 games?
