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.
Hate to give the Mets credit, but they did everything right tonight in what had to be a very tough game for them to play. As Hollandsworth said on the Cubs post-game -- if you watched the game, you saw Mets players consoling Marlins players who were in tears during the game. Between that and the way Molina handled the Ross farewell -- maybe the Mets and Cardinal players aren't pure evil. Just the fans.

Dee Gordon lead-off home run. #AintEvenMad #BiggerThanBaseball 1-0 Miami.

Amazing effort by Gordon -- truly remarkable.
Cubs get 100, KB gets 100, Hendricks gets below 2.00, Cards get absolutely destroyed by the Reds -- all good, other than some Rondon concern. Hopefully, he can get a few outings in this week and find his groove. Also, I guess Soler is still struggling with his right side. Hmmmm. Too bad Joe didn't let Addy bat with the bases loaded in the 7th -- great RBI opportunity.
I assume all the relievers are on a set schedule this week, but it seems strange Chapman pitched back-to-back.
Barry Rozner article interviewing Greg Maddux (with comments on Kyle Hendricks).
"I like watching him pitch," Maddux said of Hendricks. "I like guys that rely on movement and location. I can relate to him. That's what I had to do. "I'd rather watch him pitch than some lefty throwing 95 mph."
cubs win #100. neat.
Chapman in to stop the bleeding.
they're falling apart late in WAS...damn.
Wilson Ramos may be hurt badly. Carried off the field. Looks like the knee.
Hendricks 6 shutout innings, ends night with an ERA of 1.99
in case it hasn't been mentioned yet, Twins are hiring Indians 32-year old Derick Falvey from the Cleveland Native Americans organization.
Suppose McLeod could still be asked by another organization but likely staying put.
Well put, both your remark, and Crunch's.
I saw the Gordon HR. It was like a funeral where the mourners were made to play baseball. So sad...
i wanted to watch more of it, but it started to feel like i was going beyond witnessing a human experience that isn't often seen into an uncomfortable voyeurism. these guys are in pain.
wow I am glad I missed the start of the MIA game. I would have been sobbing.
