gosh, that lineup...

SUCKS.

How do you keep Luis Rivas and Paul Bako out of that lineup?

Lee a late scratch with a sore quad, Jake Fox at 1b instead. Reed tripled in the first but stranded.

Z with a 3-run homer off Wolf...awesome.

4-0 in the second...

Z doobles...4th RBI, 7-1 Cubs in the 4th...

should the Cubs have just spent the money to work on teaching Z to play right field this offseason instead of signing Bradley?

If Z played for an American League team, how many days a week would he typically DH?

Turns out we had a LHPH off the bench the whole time...and Z seems crazy enough to do it.

K. Hill 3/3 with a home run as well

9-1 Cubs

4/4 for Hill, 3 Runs, 2 RBI's, 1 HR...

Dude wants a MAJOR LEAGUE job.

If he doesn't get it, he'll give us the finger.

Spare yourself the effort Crunch, I'll handle it myself: Epic Fail.

they finally get Hill out, goes 4/5...

Andres Blanco 2/3 batting .313 so far, did make an error though

German with 2 bb's and 2 runs scored...

Z did give up 3 ER in 5 IP, 1 K, 2 BB

If Z was a hockey player, he'd get a +1 today.

  • OK Marlins -- take 'em down. Fernandez, at home, tomorrow for the Fish.

    Gotta say, though -- as much as I can't stand them, the Cardinals have had some very impressive late-inning wins against premier closers.

  • Very impressive that he hit a 3-2 curve ball. Such a dynamic ballplayer. If he ever learns the strike zone....

  • Sure is fun to watch them score finally. To think they were no-hit until the 7th...

  • Got to admit it - it was comforting seeing Rondon come out for the eighth after just taking a two run lead ... And put the hammer down with a 7 pitch inning. Good stuff

    Not much going our way these days.
