It's a long season and one losing weekend against a bad team will not make or break it. Now, one awesome 4-game sweep of a good team will certainly improve our moods.

Let's do this!!

c.martinez is working the wrong side of the very edge of the strikezone and not getting any of the calls his way. it's not like he should or anything, but this zone is tight so far tonight.

rosscup up with bases loaded, 0 outs, and a 2 run lead to protect after strop shit the bed... this game is 3 hours old...it's the 7th inning.

Belisle and Carlos V. both have ERAs below 1.00 for the Cards. That just sucks. Cubs were winning games they should have lost a while ago; now they are doing the opposite. Somebody tell Starlin to stop trying to pull everything -- he is wearing out the SS on the other teams with ground balls.

Cubs should seriously consider moving Bryant to hit #2. Nobody is pitching to him, and I'd rather see him on base with Soler and Rizzo coming up than Montero (despite his recent hot streak) and Ground Ball Castro.

Most depressing loss of the year...and I now have a real bad feeling about the next 3. Can't do that against the Cardinals, Travis. You simply cannot.

That was a weird game for 50 reasons. I wouldn't read too much into it. The ump gave the Cubs huge advantage in the first inning squeezing Martinez bad. Hard hit balls for the Cubs right at people BABIP house of mirrors. They actually played pretty well. Strop wasn't horrible - couple pitches and ground balls a foot in the wrong direction. Cards are really getting good breaks right now. It won't last. That game was painful but it wasn't as bad as it seemed.

I am remembering back to early spring training when people were saying: "What are the Cubs going to do with all of these pitchers?  They have too many." and chuckling. It seems like these days you can bank on several being DLed at any given time and an equal number being completely ineffective.

I just remember we had Lester, Arrieta, Hammel, Hendricks, Wood, Wada, Jackson, Turner, Doubront, Rondon, Strop, Ramirez, Grimm, Motte, Coke, Rosscup, Schlitter, Parker, Ortiz, Germen, Roach, Beeler, Jokisch, and Britton. You'd think with 24 guys you could find 11-12 that would be healthy and effective at the big league level.  

As bad as that nightmare was, and it was very bad, it was good to see them work those at bats against Martinez. They had him in a boiling rage. I could nitpick about various things but most of it is all just stuff that happens during the course of a year and eventually straightens itself out. The real problem is that these guys aren't getting far with this bullpen. This is the same bullpen I was hopeful would make the Cubs unbeatable after 6. Of course, that was before injuries.

That game was boring as hell despite ending in a 1-run difference, and I agree with Carlito's BABIP hall of mirrors comment (late in the game--not in the first inning). One pleasant takeaway--Russell is batting over .200, hit a long homerun on a super quick, short swing, and now has his OPS in not-totally-embarrassing territory.

deno back to the DL...szczur expected to be called up (if he hasn't already). same hammy injury...3rd time since spring.

"Marlins released C Jarrod Saltalamacchia." no trade partner found. the C market has been unreal this winter/spring...aside from CHC/TOR scrambling to add catchers they didn't have a need for, none of the "buyers" in the trade market are willing to give up anything at all. guess it's time to see how much ARZ really does feel about their crappy C core...or if BOS will make a move...or TEX...or anyone...

    i don't think his confidence or ego any has any setting other than "10"...unless his goes to "11."

    that said, while these traits can give way to a terrible person or teammate, it seems like his sky high...ummm self determination...isn't toxic.  he seems to handle failure well and enjoy other people's success on the team aside from his own.

    Maybe a key moment in PCA’s career tonight. He was thrown behind twice by former big leaguer Wily Peralta. No warning and Iowa’s manager is tossed defending his player. Next pitch, PCA drills over the right field wall, followed by an epic bat flip. His confidence had to be sky high after that.

    Next at bat he drills a double and then scores. PCA 9 for 18 with 3 homers since being optioned.

    almost 2 hours into a rainless rain delay.

    AND now it's postponed.  july 13th double header.

    Good rehab start for Wicks at Iowa: 33 pitches, 2 IP, 2 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, 3 Ks. 

    Good night for PCA as well with another HR and a double.

    PCA has had 2 hits in all 4 games since going back to iowa...4th game still in progress.

    3 homers.

    looking strongly like MIL. PIT, and CIN will win tonight.  CIN still has 4 innings to protect 4 runs vs LAD.

    I thought this article quote from the Athletic by Jim Bowden was interesting (since I don’t know either reliever mentioned, Finnegan or Foley). The topic was Cubs getting bullpen help but he says the A’s probably will make Miller a starter eventually. 
    I don’t think the A’s are going to trade Miller because he has a chance to become a No. 1 starter if they develop him working toward that goal. If I’m the Cubs, I’d focus on targeting relievers such as Kyle Finnegan of the Nationals and Jason Foley of the Tigers who will come at a much lower price than Caissie and Alcántara.”

    I need to partially concede on this in that Bellinger’s strike out rate is considerably lower than other players. That said, it wasn’t necessarily my main point.

    I can see players like Swanson, Hoerner, Happ and Suzuki doing things like laying down bunts, slapping the ball the other way, etc. Focusing on contact and putting the ball in play. That just doesn’t seem to be the stuff Bellinger is made of. And that’s ok - you don’t necessarily expect that from your main power guy.

    I wasn’t meaning to put Bellinger down in this instance. More excluding him from this particular conversation.
