Thurs Funnies: It's easy to screw up against this Cubs lineup.

Well, it didn't eXACTly play out like this - Andrew Heaney got a nose bleed earlier in the game.
But you get what I mean.
The Cubs' lineup is just one big monster and if you screw up, it'll only get bigger.

Tonight we'll get to see John Lackey as a Cub for the first time.
For some reason, I feel like he's going to fit in just fine and not have any year one jitters.
Lets see what happens in Phoenix, shall we?

Go Cubs.

  • Yep...sort of. Matheny says Rosenthal will no longer pitch the 9th, and they will mix/match Oh, Siegrist and Broxton.

  • Duane Underwood now 0-5 with a 5.44 ERA for Tenn. Urp. Warren not sharp at Iowa tonight. When will Cease and Hudson be ready?

    On a positive note, Jiminez with his 10th HR tonight. He has a .924 OPS -- the only player in the league with an OPS over .900. Leads the lead in 2B, SLG and OPS, tied for the league lead in HR and 3rd in Avg. Nice!

  • - The pressure of going for the regular-season wins record is now gone.
    - Joe will come up with more wacky dress-up ideas for the team to wear after they lose their next get-away game.
    - There is more clarity on Spencer Patton.
    - We play the Reds next. They aren't very good.
    - We'll have at least a 9 game lead after today.
    EDIT: - Contreras looks like the real deal.

    Other than that, not much -- nasty stretch. Two ugly losses in the last 4 games.
    Ugh -- give Lackey a 4-1 lead, you hope for better.

  • Time to scrap the scouting report on Justin Bour and get a new one. Sheesh.
