Mike Quade Just Ran Circles Around Tony LaRussa.
More after the jump...
Well, he did if you just watched the Cardinal's effort.
Even Pat Hughes last night said he'd never seen such a lethargic Cardinal team play the Cubs.
Not good for Tony LaRussa.
Pretty awesome for Mike Quade.
So the Cubs sweep the Cardinals in St. Louis for the first time since 1988? (Did I hear that right?)
Young Tyler Colvin drives the stake in the heart with the 3 run homer (his 20th!) off of Cardinal Ace Chris Carpenter.
Carlos Zambrano wins yet another game, and he's so excited he decides to talk about retiring!
you please do that kind of reflection when you're home this winter so
we'll all have something to talk about rather than how the Bears could
possibly be 1 and 7?
And Mike Quade as the new Cubs manager.
He's seriously doing some kind of job, and surely his performance has to give Jim Hendry pause.
Yes, Hendy's gonna travel around and do all the interviews, but... how to put this?
When you're fishing you always take the boat to the other side of the lake because you're positive that's where that Big Bass is.
But sometimes, he's right off the pier.
You can view Tim Souers work on a daily basis at Cubby Blue.
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!
j.urias didn't have a good debut...
2.2ip 5h 4bb 3k...3 r/er...1 wp
81 pitches. yow.
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
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?
Yeah, but he kills lefties.
wow...instant hardcore rain.
it was massive...hit off the bottom of the LF scoreboard.
Projected at 461 ft, with a 108 mph exit velocity - longest Cub HR this year by 20 ft (I think Arrieta had the longest?)
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.
cubs lead 1-5, bottom 4.
Just noticed that Baez's current walk-up song is "Informer" by Snow. Dear God. That's world class bad.
