Cubs 6, Rockies 3 and Dexter Fowler's outs.

Jeff Samardzija had a pretty amazing night last night.
Dexter Fowler not so much.

Samardzija gave up 2 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks in 8 full innings.
Probably the best part about that was the 8 innings.
Because that was only 108 pitches.
The other best part was the 2-run dinger he hit off Jon Garland.
What a performance, and Dexter Fowler was there to watch it all.
Cubs 6 Rockies 3.

gonna go see if garza can keep his errorless games streak alive tonight...

Garza at 42 pitches through 3 IP. No runs, 2 hits, 4 K's, No BB. 1-0 Iowa Cubs after 3.

Go Mike!

rays games are a lot more enjoyable when brian knobs (yes, the wrestler) and rob szasz (the nobody) aren't in attendance yelling at players for 3 hours straight in an effort to make sure everyone in the place has to hear what they have to say in their form of "heckling."

...because the game is on the field...not the idiots in the stands...

  • SHOW ME THE MONEY: Jose Albertos has signed with Mega-Agent Scott Boras.

    Albertos has already received his signing bonus and won't see any additional significant money until he reaches the big leagues, so this is a long-term investment for the Boras Corporation.  

    Other Cubs represented by Boras include Jake Arrieta, Kris Bryant, Addison Russell, and Albert Almora Jr.

  • I am glad Joe is managing this team and not Old and Blue!

  • Baez had Maddon's ass last night. I didn't hear the reason for taking Contreras out last night but whatever game management thingy it was, you don't take out your second hottest hitter. Or is he third? Anyway, you don't take him out. The guy can probably play anywhere in the field, anyway. Did anybody see that nice catch in left he made? I don't think he got a late start on that, just tracked it damn well for a catcher.

  • Per Fangraphs...

    Bryant took over NL lead in WAR after yesterday's effort. 3.9. Rizzo's at 2.8 and 8th in the league. Rizzo actually with better offensive numbers (161 wRC+ versus 146 for Bryant), but Bryant gets a good bump because of defense and position(s) played.

    Fowler with a 2.8 WAR as well (9th), Zobrist with a 2.7 (14th).

    M. Carpenter leads NL with 163 wRC+ just ahead of Rizzo who is 2nd.

  • yes. I was at the Sean Marshall game in LF. Lou Piniella was managing. StL won 4-2, so I guess it didn't help but it was zany. Soriano/Reed Johnson and Marshall were the LF's.

    On a 6 degrees of separation note: Cubs got Travis Wood in the trade that sent Sean Marshall to Cincy.

  • Can a pitcher get more than one hold in a game? Or a Win and a save?

    cubbies.4ever 12 hours 58 min ago view
  • Didn't they do this sort of thing with Sean Marshall years back? Sticking him in LF to save him to face others, but without a pitcher replacing him in LF.
