Sunday Funnies: Samardzija can't buy a win

Awesome. Love looking at Alec Bald's pitching arm. Shaped similar to Marmol yesterday.

Thanks Cubster. Marmol wears me out. 

Great work CB. As the kids say, so much win. As Smarj says, so much.

4 straight hits (and a wild pitch) to start the 4th for e.jackson...3 runs in...at least he's better than halladay...which isn't saying much this season.

cubs with 19 WP this season and 4 PB.

4 straight 2-out hits for the cubs...4-3 cin/chc in the bottom 5th.

marmol in to pitch the 6th...earliest appearance in a game since 08.

...and s.camp comes into the 7th to throw his 87mph heat and screw up the close game.

6-3 cin/chc.

That's exactly as fast as my friend threw when he went undrafted. #dfa

...and the cubs lose...7-4

11-20 on the season.

fuji goes 1ip 0h 1bb 2k for iowa

verlander no-hitter through 6...98 pitches, though.

...and it's over in the 7th after 1 out.

baseball is better...when the Cubs play against the bad teams.

Cubs move to 4th in the 2014 draft...

Too soon?

when the "hell yeah" cry of cubs fans this offseason signing class was "wait until we see what we can get for these guys in june" i think everyone gave up before the race started.

i'm waiting for the low-point where fans on message boards are cheering losses for a better draft slot. i imagine that should heat up around august.

why wait? A loss in May is as valuable as one during the dog days.

the cubs have a better record than TOR and the same record as LAA. applying pre-season logic, the cubs are doing extraordinary.

  • Barry Rozner article interviewing Greg Maddux (with comments on Kyle Hendricks).

    http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20160925/sports...

    "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."

    Suppose McLeod could still be asked by another organization but likely staying put.

  • d.gordon leads off MIA inning with a HR...came up to bat wearing j.fernandez's helmet.

    he barely made it back into the dugout after crying his way around the bases.

    i can't watch this game anymore. it's too much...too real.

  • FLA really doesn't look like they're mentally/physically prepared for this game. never seen anything like this...it's not just a few people in the dugout still feeling it large, it's pretty much everyone.

    i doubt it will lead to some kinda error-filled little league quality game, but everyone looks drained and still draining.

    ...and onto the cubs game. go #100.
