    As for the Cubby offense, it's nice to see us putting the bat on the ball, which has led to a bunch of singles. But our leader in extrabase hits is Izturis (2 doubles on Thursday), and we're playing in the one of the best offensive parks in the NL.

    Depending on the temp in WI, the Brewers will close the roof on Miller Park, so a more tolerable climate is in line. The Brewers have had the roof closed in all three home games thus far. Our pitching competition isn't getting easier in that we'll face Bush, Sheets, and Capuano against Hill, Zambrano, and Miller.
    bob the fabled "offensive park" in cincinatti does not exist in cold weather. Then it plays neutral.

    as for the roof being closed in milwaukee, that is the case for anything below 60 degrees or thereabouts. its going to be in the low 20's tonight (they cancelled the game at comiskey tonight)

    lord was rich hill good tonight. 7 IP, 1 hit (the homer), and more importantly ZERO walks.

    the error by ramirez was no error as Lee wasnt off the bag (even the commentators said that, and i was watching on milwaukee TV). Hill was impressive getting out of the jam there in the 6th.

    bout damned time the offense showed up.

    I was at the game tonight, Hill was certainly dealing. Some stupid Cubs fan behind mentioned the no-no a few minutes before the homer ... I think he'll be getting a subpoena from kangaroo court in the near future. Hill's curveball was its usual self, making the Brew Crew look silly, but even more important is that he was controlling his fastball. Rich kept his pitch count low (for most of the game he was averaging 10 pitches per inning), and stayed ahead in the count on nearly every hitter.

    And you're right, the E-5 was no E-5, Derrek most definitely kept his foot on the bag, and everyone in Miller Park besides the first base ump knew it.

    DeRosa, Rammy, Floyd, and D Lee are hitting exceptionally well in these first four games, hopefully they'll stay hot.

    On a side note, Angel Guzman, who gave up 2 runs in 2 innings of relief, may still be getting some rookie hazing (even though he logged 56 innings last year in the majors), as he walked alone from the dugout to the right field bullpen after batting practice, carrying a pink and purple backpack, possibly Hello Kitty.
    A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

    Nice to see the Cubs finally found their offense. Hill was awesome!

    another solid outing by the pitching staff. zambrano wasnt stellar, but he was good enough to beat ben sheets.

    Impressive work by starting pitching. The pieces to a divisional win are there. And once you get into Oct. anything is possible because the team that heats up will run with it.

    I think they need to fix their speed gun, it said the pitch that hit Lee was 104 mph. lol.

    The guns been slow all series by about 2-3 mph. I watched much of the game (thanks MLB.tv) but didn't see what you're talking about. Are you sure the pitch Lee hit wasn't registered off his swing?

    Other than that we might have saw what Lou's lefty lineup is going to be, Soriano-Theriot-Lee-Ram-DeRosa-Barrett-Murton-SS-P. Leaving him with two big lefties off the bench in Jones and Floyd.

    Wade Miller pitched like I thought he would...

    He was talking about the pitch that hit Lee, not a pitch that Lee hit.

    Despite jumping out to a 5 run lead today, we gave it back in the 5th. Carlos was ugly, Ohman walked in two runs, if it wasn't for Wuertz striking out the side with the bases loaded we'd be losing by more than just 6-5 at this point.

    I predicted Wuertz to have a really good year this year. Hope he proves me right.

    Well before this, there was alot of trade talk surrounding Wuertz.

    I'm really glad they didn't trade him. We need solid right-handed relief. I don't trust Dempster and Guzman. Didn't expect Howry to do so poorly (although it's too early to get on him).

    If Miller doesn't get his act together pronto, you'll likely see Guzman get a spot start or two with Miller in the pen. As for Howry, I'm not going to ride him yet, his track record speaks for itself.

    That was a much better game today. The Cubs got out to a big lead, and they didn't blow it! Hill was awesome, as usual. Nice to see Soriano get his first RBI, too.

    Great pitcher's duel today, too bad the Cubs came out the loser with Theriot collecting 3 of the teams' four hits, and outhitting the Reds (2 hits). This was probably the Lilly's best pitched game as a Cubby thus far, that curve was nasty and the fastball was locating. He just had one bad stretch, and the Cubs couldn't capitalize on countless opportunities; they had Soriano on third and Theriot on 1st with no outs and the heart of the lineup up yet still couldn't score.

    I don't know if Lilly was trying to pitch around Conine in the 4th, but with Phillips on second and first base open, he probably should have. Conine was (or is now) 7 of 23 against Lilly (.304) in his career and the Junior, a lefty, was on deck.

    Must give credit to Lohse though, he consistently painted the outside corner throughout the day and The Riot was the only Cub who was hitting it (if he hadn't hit that ball so hard in the 6th, they might still be playing because Soriano could have made it home).
    A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel.
