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...

    The Cubs have also won eight of nine starts by Shota Imanaga, including the first seven.

    Damn. Regression to the mean, or whatever it is, sucks at times. 

  • Arizona Phil (view)

    True. The Cubs have lost Steele's last eight starts going back to last September. Prior to that, the Cubs had won nine consecutive games started by Steele. 

  • Eric S (view)

    According to a Cubs podcaster, the Cubs have lost the last eight games that Steele has started. Haven’t checked it but sounds plausible after last year’s September swoon. Whatever. But certainly not a streak I’d ever associate with Steele. Edwin Jackson, yes. Steele? No. 

    Hope that streak, true or not, ends today.

    h.neris has calmed his game a bit after walking the world in april.

    so far in may... 8ip 7h 3bb 5k

    it's not ideal for a closer, but it's not trash.  he walked 11 guys in 10 innings in april.

    m.leiter has been on another planet all year and crazy in may.  his may 7ip 4h 1bb 13k.

    both guys have only given up 1hr all season.

    assad get d.ross'd after 4.2ip...men on the corners...102 pitches thrown (104 his season and career high).

  • crunch (view)

    cubs out here giving away chances at outs with the defense...not the first time this year...too many times this year.

    i understand 2 of the 3 miscues (so far in the 5th) were wind-aided, but still...damn...

    big OF shot on the bleachers and judging by what i'm seeing, about 75%+ of those baseball-bat "mugs" of beer seem to be sold to the bleacher fans.

    ryne sandberg posted his latest scans show no cancer.

    that's good.  that said, you gotta wait a few years to see where you're truly at with something like stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer.  if it didn't metastasize to his bones, he's already got an advantage with the latest news...that area of metastasis seems to be one of the worst signs of survival with this particular cancer.

    he will be monitored for the rest of his life until his age/health dictates it's no longer neccessary.

    good news for now.  hopefully he's one of the slightly better than 1/3rd that survive stage 4 prostate cancer after 5 years.  this news is a great start.
