Game 105 Thread / Phillies @ Cubs (2 of 4)

Game Chat Adam Eaton vs. Jason Marquis

Comments

This lineup makes me sick. Dissing the lineup stopped working last week.

This is going to be one of 22-17 Cubs/Phillies games, both pitchers suck and i imagine given the hudmity the winds is blowing out. Odd lineup for Philly having Dobbs lead off. Id would have gone Rowand and put Burrell 5th and Dobbs 6th.

Someone point JJ at the ball, please. He lost the ball in the sky/lights... it happens to the best of them.

and Jones strikes out on three pitches with the bags loaded and one out. must have lost the ball in the lights happens to the best of them

Phillies pitcher was hit in the leg by a Ramirez hit that went to the first baseman who made the out.

and Jones strikes out on three pitches with the bags loaded and one out. Funny... didn't hear you say anything about JJ's 2-run double...

Well, technically it was a 1-run double and the second run scored on a error. Maybe it was only a single too, not sure.

Yea... it was a double with one RBI and the second run scored on the error. But still - it is ridiculous that people on here will attack JJ for a strikeout and completely ignore his double. Or attack him for losing a ball in the lights/sky and completely ignore several other good defensive skills.

Ah, at least JJ seems to be getting some confidence back. I don't groan when I see him in the lineup anymore. What's really ridiculous is this Mets-Brewers game. Going into the 12th now tied at 2-2. I know I won't be able to go to bed until it's over, one way or the other.

and it's over Jeff Geokins with a 2 run blast to keep the Brewers in first. When do we play them again? Cubs need to TCB themselves, it seems.

Can we give it up for Jason Marquis. He got the job done and probably would have only given up 2 runs if not for Jock's understandable? forgivable? misplay. And great work Will Ohman, Carlos Marmol and Bobby Howry.

I'll give it up for Marquis.....nice job, he's been more than we could have hoped for this year.

I don't have to give it up for Marquis, since I defended him after his last, horrible, start. If he can keep the groundballs flowing, he will be fine. And if he's fine, it's hard to believe the Cubs won't take the division, and may even chase down the Mets for HF advantage in the NL playoffs. That is if no one gets hurt. Of course there was some Dustyism going on as Murton sat on the bench last night. I could have done without that. It makes Piniella look stupid, there's no other word for it. Remember when everyone thought that Murton would platoon with Floyd - but get starts against right handers? Pinheadiella cannot even get Murton back to back starts against left handers.

Of course there was some Dustyism going on as Murton sat on the bench last night. They were facing a rhp, so it would make sense to have Floyd in there. Do you expect Murton to play every day?

whoops, thought that was Moyer last night. I will hold off on the official Dusty comparison until tonights (why?) lineup is announced.

whoops, thought that was Moyer last night. Yea... I made the same mistake yesterday. I would expect Murton to start tonight with Pagan on center.

#22 chadster- my reverse curse in number 6 apparently worked. hooray marquis! am now trying to prepare a similar incantation for the s&p 500. * * * * * * * 1 run vs hamels monday. 7 runs vs a variety tuesday. will the real cubs please stand up? * * * * * * * jones is neither the problem nor the solution. i'd rather see pie; it just aint gonna happen.

1 run vs hamels monday. 7 runs vs a variety tuesday. will the real cubs please stand up? I don't think it has much to do with the "real cubs." It has to do with the fact that Hamels is one of the best left handed pitchers in the game.
