Two Down, Four to Go

Written by , Posted in General

I’m looking at my 2009 Cubs Baseball Schedule. There are 6 full months of baseball in the season, and two of them are gone. Two down, four to go. Excluding October, of course. So how are things going, 1/3 of the way through the calendar season? The Cubbies are two games above .500 (25 and 23), with a .521 winning percentage. Overall, the starting pitching is looking good. When Carlos is not taking a baseball bat to the Gatorade cooler, that is. Randy Wells is a welcome addition to the rotation. Rich Harden’s back may get better. I’d love to […]

Hey Chicago waddaya say

The Cubs are gonna win today! Today’s game was the normal Cubs roller-coaster. Real frustration through the first two-thirds, particularly the sixth. How in the world did we put a guy on third with nobody out and not get him in? My big frustration with the 2009 Cubs is that we don’t do too well if we don’t: 1. Have a lead in the 9th or 2. Score at least 4 runs. So there we went into the 7th inning with a big old goose egg on the scoreboard. Things were not looking good at all. Fortunately things took a […]

Interesting week. I’m not feeling very good yet about how things are going, but I’m not feeling as bad as earlier in the week (long about losses 7 and 8). Let’s clock in at fair to midland and call it a week. Recap: Date Opponent W/L – Score Notes Bad Company movie Friday 05/23 @ San Diego L (4-0) I liked this Zambrano vs. Peavy matchup. Guess who won? Yep, Peavy. No offense yet again, too many strikeouts to count, lots of stranded runners. Ugh. Saturday 05/24 @ San Diego L (3-1) Randy Wells pitched yet another strong game. Needs […]

Randy Wells Gets the Shaft….Again

Written by , Posted in General

I decided to do something a little different tonight and score the fight like a boxing match by inning. In case you don’t know how that works, here is a decent explaination. 1st Inning: 10-8 Dodgers Juan Pierre stole 2nd and scored on a bunt by Furcal. The problem I noticed was that Randy Wells has no slide step at all. He’s going to need to try to develop something or runners are going to steal all over the place on him. He was able to get out of the inning with just the one run allowed by pitching out […]
