Holy crap, Theodore is 13-7 after having that atrocious start this year? Neat.

It would be nice if we could call this one a mulligan and the Pirates beat the Brewers.

I wouldn't be completely shocked to see the Cubs make a move for a right handed pinch hitter. I don't think anyone trusts Ronny Cedeno in a pressure pinch hitting situation. Johnson is usually ok but looked bad swinging at ball 4.

Ah well first loss since the debacle against the Nationals, I'll take it.

No closer to a division title, but looks like Cards are in trouble. Hopefully knock that number down to a 16.

and Pujols homers just as I type that to make it 8-5 Astros headed to the bottom of the 7th.

Remember LATROY HAWKINS striking out three Cubs in a mop-up role shortly after being acquired by the 'Stros? He struck out the side. I chalked it up at the time as a case of the Cubs wanting to get the game over with.

Well, he kept it up. So far in August he's made 13 appearances, pitched 10.0 innings, allowed no runs on 3 hits and struck out 16!

Houston is using him as their set-up man for Valverde. It seems to suit him...

  • CUBBIES-4-EVER: It's not ten days including the day the player was Designated for Assignment, it's ten day from the day the player was Designated for Assignment. 

    So because Neil Ramirez was Designated for Assignment on 5/21, the deadline to either assign the player to another club (MLB or minor league) or release the player is 5/31 (today).

  • He's had so few save opportunities that it might be difficult for him to get the All Star nod but Rondon has an absolutely ridiculous 1.05 ERA and 1.06 FIP after this game so far (and I think his worst outing was in the 10th inning non save situation) so I do absolutely think he is worth considering.

  • wood(4)/grimm/strop/rondon combine for 7ip 0h 0bb 8K

    nasty.

  • 3ip 0h 0bb 3k for t.wood...nice.

    28 pitches.

    wonder if they'll let him go another.

    4ip 0h 0bb 4k...and probably done f'real this time. 43 pitches and in line for the win.

  • Depends how long he'd be gone but if not too long I would assume they'll use Wood or Cahill and limit them to 4 or 5 innings and call up a reliever to use in the bullpen.

  • hopefully it's a carlos-zambrano-special and he just needs to drink more water and less coffee+redbull before starts.

  • Assuming Hammel needs some DL time for the hammy, who do the Cubs call up: Glasnow or Taillon? Too many starting pitching prospects at Iowa to choose from.

  • "cramping in right hamstring" according to the booth.

    btw, it was his left hamstring that was injured last year.

  • hammel is injured and done..."leg cramp" or some other leg issue...was down behind the mound coming back from commercial and seemed to have injured himself warming up on the mound between innings.
