Today's lineup is in and Soriano sits.

DeJesus RF
Campana CF
Castro SS
LaHair 1B
Stewart 3B
Soto C
Cardenas LF
Barney 2B
Maholm P

So what are we thinking June 1 for Rizzo?

I thought June 23rd was the day where the Cubs would delay his free agency for another season.

Soriano's knee is sore, that's why he is sitting.

and he sucks

Hey he's got 14 RBI's!!! Lol...
.253/.276./303....ugh. Small sample, yes. Still crappy.

This is what teams do when they let a guy wiith a reputation go. Actually, I think it shows some class.

And CubbyBlue, that was your best effort.

I rarely enjoy animated GIF's but that was great.

Old and Blue - while I don't really comment that much, I do try to keep up on reading. Thank you.

14 rbi's is third on the team.

Can't use nobody is getting on base in front of him - .372 is the OBP average among Dejesus, Camp, Lahair, Castro

great work, even without sally struthers!

  • Was the error scored on Zobrist's third ab ruled correctly? Ron was saying that it was a pretty tough chance for the fielder

  • Did anybody see that Zobrist strikeout?

    That was extremely disappointing.

  • Strangest win of the year, and one of the sweetest. Twice I thought it was easily in the bag, then after the first 2 hitters in the 9th I thought all was lost. Big game for Grimm, Strop & Rondon. But, man, those Cards can hit for power.

  • Very satisfying, gut-check win today. The beers on the trip back to Chicago are going to taste fantastic.

  • It's still very early but this game felt very important to me and probably knocked 2 years off my life. Seemed like every inning was big.

  • Yes then they moved him two spot then not so much, back batting 7th

  • This is the exact game that the Cubs would have lost in years past to the Cardinals.

  • Arrieta starting. Leads of 6-1 and 9-4. You don't expect to have such a sense of relief when they win.

  • phew

  • At least the end result was worth the wait.

    Rob Richardson 3 hours 23 min ago view
  • I guess he's better than what they've had. He started out like the Babe there.

    The E-Man 3 hours 32 min ago view
  • Fair enough, but Castro isn't really very good.

    Rob Richardson 3 hours 52 min ago view
  • I can just hear Pat Hughes chortling "typical Cubs-Cards game..."

  • As long as Maddon uses him against RH he is good. Against LH - not so much.

    His recent HR's obviously have not been great pitches.

    So, let's just say my personal confidence in the guy is not there yet.

    The E-Man 3 hours 58 min ago view
  • not that I'm agreeing with E-Man in anyway here, but Warren's FIP and peripherals are not really good (5.20 FIP/5.19 BB/9/.128 BABIP), although his actual results are a lot better. Well until today...

    Trade was also to make room for Zobrist and it'll be a few years before we can really judge it.

  • Eventually, the Maddon "play everyone everywhere" thing was going to create a problem.
