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 am going tonight, so I am not ok with that.
But, maybe Hendrix will give his patented solid 5 before Richard or Wood comes in...
One can hope.
if you save the lumber from your constant trips to the cross you can build your very own safe space to view my posts.
@billybucks you speak the truth and it's precisely what me and others have been saying for over a year. It's an unfortunate hitch in his game, one that seems correctable, but so far has not been corrected. Also a hitch that is going over 3 seasons now and no one has been able to truly exploit in any meaningful way (except sort of the Royals in that Wild Card game although they stole plenty of bases off the other pitchers in that game and the rest of the playoff teams the rest of that run).
AZBOBBOP: Nothing new on Oscar de la Cruz. Still shut down with elbow issues.
I nominate Sean Rodriguez.
who's this guy being all reasonable and stuff?
pick someone on the board who's literally worse than hitler and start screaming about it. cubs 2016!
It's not pathetic -- it's what we've been waiting for!
Yikes -- I was off the site for a short while and it blew up.
Gentlemen -- it is apparent that Lester has a weakness in his game. Everybody knows about it. He has, apparently, tried to work on it, but without success. Fortunately, he is talented enough that he is able to largely overcome his shortcoming.
I am amazed that other teams don't try to bunt on him, but, as has been said, bunting is not a skill many players have.
Interesting that Hendricks is going tomorrow -- so, he wasn't really "skipped", just moved back a few days so Jake and Lester could deal against the Pirates. I'm OK with that.
PHIL: Thanks for your updates.
One thing that we are seeing come to bear is that Theo's obvious strategy has been to stockpile young, power arms in the lower levels while owning bats that are much nearer to MLB ready - then, buying the arms the org needs in order to be highly competitive.
It's fun to watch the cards shit the bed anytime of the year
I really thought he would be the one getting the call-up. This must be a favor to the player from Theo.
I'm already scoreboard watching and it's only the start of May. How pathetic is that?
Glad to see Hudson having another good outing. He is so impressive for an 18/yo. Surprised to see Shane V. still there. I thought he would be gone this week. I can picture today. Thanks Phil!
stats don't lie. *nods*
2016 Cubs are 0-1 on day after Trans recaps, 20-5 in other games. I enjoy his recaps, but there is a price to pay.
