Due sing gets dfa’d

Tim Collins signed but goes to Iowa roster 

cubs embarrasing SD...2 outs in the 1st...6 runs in.

cubs fielding a very minor league heavy lineup today and they've chased l.allen after 0.2ip

"wow, what a lead!  can't blow this one!" - cubs fans

"hold my beer, i'm going in." - montgomery

monty gives up 3 in the bottom 1st...9 runs scored between both teams in a 40 minute 1st inning.

"don't worry, we got this" - every cubs player with a bat

18 runs through 4.2 for CHC and SD is bringing in their 7th pitcher of the game.

...21 runs through 6ip...24-6 final, cubs with 27h and 8bb

btw, chatwood threw a nearly flawless 1ip 0h 0bb 2k performance with command/control over 3 pitches.  it was nothing short of spectacular, especially his curve.  maples went 1ip 0h 0bb 3k with his filthy slider on point.

for the 2nd game in a row a cubs runner is tagged out after the 1st baseman drops the ball and the runner turns toward 2nd while going back to 1st (not realizing the 1st baseman dropped the ball and was safe)...that's not a good look in back to back games....

Chatwood for closer! *ducks*

c.singleton has announced he's retiring, btw.

he's going to focus on outreach, speaking engagements, and writing (his mother was killed in the SC AME church shooting).

That is so sad. I had forgotten that.

AZ PHIL: What will happen to Chesny Young?

E-MAN: Chesny Young will probably catch on somewhere. There's always Mexico (just ask Carlos Zambrano, Felix Pie, and Junior Lake).
