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.

  • I noticed that too. He's getting to everything, but when he gets right under it on a high flyball he looks uncomfortable

  • Did you expect anything different?

  • Wow, did they blow this game. Stupid plays by the kids in the 7th -- Almora throwing to 3rd instead of 2nd to keep the DP in order (when a DP probably wins the game) and Baez throwing to 3rd (to a backpedalling KB) instead of getting the easy 2nd out at first - cost them the game. Also, Contreras almost throws the ball into RF on a nonexistent pick-off play. And Maddon, for using Peralta in the first place. Did they do a bunch of shots in the dugout before the 7th? Unbelievably bad baseball. I thought Almora had a high baseball IQ?

  • Yep, can't say I disagree with that. His first batter and resulting walk was just brutal. Reminded me of a bit of Jacque Jones spiking his throws into the ground from RF.

  • The use of Peralta in any semblance of a high leverage situation is questionable at best.

    fixed that for ya.

  • The use of Peralta in any semblance of a high leverage situation is questionable at best. Hind sight is easy but Peralta had nothing.

  • "Tommy La Stella (hamstring) will remain on his minor league rehab assignment through at least Friday."

    should be an interesting roster shuffle once these guys trickle back in. i imagine patton or peralta are on the hot seat for la stella's return.

  • Not certain why the site has been slowed. Worked much of Wednesday on it and will continue today. Sorry for the inconvenience. I will probably take it offline for a while, but it will be up before the game against the Mets.
