Talking Cubs Baseball Since 2003

Baseball Is A Funny Game

As I watched the game last night, I was confident that we would win. The Reds just are not a good team right now and the Cubs are on fire. When Hairston led off with a double, I thought for sure Lee would get him home from 3rd with 1 out. Instead, Lee strikes out and we don’t score that inning. The following inning they again lead off with a double and again fail to score. Then, later in the game, Lee gets a 2 OUT double and they score 3 runs. What the heck is going on? I love baseball because it is never a sure bet. It changes so much from day to day. Every day you see something new.

David Pinto of Baseball Musings has a pretty cool database that you can thumb through. It has stuff like Pitcher by day logs, batting logs, etc. It’s very cool and can be found here
