  • We've missed them since they moved to NL

    Believe me, boy, do I know that! Homeruns were flying out for us that night just when we needed them ...
    Again, our heartfelt thanks to the Brewers staff! . . . .

      so I'm happy the Cubs were able to help put the Red Sox a half game into first place
      as we took two games. Also great to see Sam get hit #2,000!

      Congratulations on a very successful weekend!

        I keep forgetting he's alot older now . . .
        The only time Clemens would need 140 pitches, is a night he didn't have his good stuff and was struggling. I really am pulling for him to reach both 4000th K & 300th Win in the same night . . .
        Normally with Clemens, a high pitch count indicates he's gotten behind a lot of batters and has needed to work harder than necessary. He guts it out and makes the 2-out 2-runner strikeout or ground that he needs, but more laborous than necessary.

        He should get 300/4,000, since he's now at 299/3,996. We'll see how fiesty St Louis is this weekend. Hopefully Saturday, since I'm not sure how Clemens feels about Friday the 13th.

        • It's all quiet on the southern front...

          The silence is {a welcome change} but deafening ...

          It's been awfully quite down there in Mudville...
          Is the reality a bit disheartening that his super
          Yman team is vulnerable this season?

            I'm curious, why do you use quotes when posting?

            Every team's vulnerable. Of course, if a team picks it up and has a good series, that always puts a smile on my face.

            My next test is to see who has a better series against St Louis. Boston or the Yanks.

              • Hope you had fun at Wrigley, watching the very healthy future of pitching in baseball: Wood and Prior mow 'em down 21 times.

                How long they stay with the Cubs is anyone's guess ?
                But as long as they are in contention, now is the time to get Mike Lowell at 3B to solidify the run for the NL crown.

                    St. Louis will be a very tough series for both Boston and New York. They look like a powerful offensive team . . . . . .

                      Maybe Tino will be extra batty this week, but cool down a bit this weekend. I think he's used to doing his best against a certain team in Fenway.

                      • I think it'll all come down to whose pitching staff recovers the quickest and remains strong the longest. We all know that Boston, New York and Toronto can hit. So pitching's the difference which is why I think Toronto will fade. Pedro's is now 100% and starts on Wednesday.
                        Let's see if Boston can continue their success at home and if
                        New York continues below .500 @ Yankee Stadium!

                        • I see you couldn't resist putting in the sub .500 thing, huh? That's alrighty, I'll get ya back!

                          I'll put a note in to Tino that since having replaced Mattingly and Big Mac, he should get a little happy at the plate and get to the Boston pen a little early. I'll make sure that Rolens and LaRussa get the memo also.

                          Of course, if they take 2 of 3 at Fenway, but we take 2 of 3 against St Louis, then what's your excuse, my friend?

                            The difference could be which St.Louis pitchers start against each team.
                            And it looks like you're going to face their two best . . .



                            STL: Woody Williams (8-1) BOS: Kim (2-5)
                            STL: Brett Tomko (2-4) BOS: Pedro (4-2)
                            STL: Stephenson (3-5) BOS: Wakefield (5-2)


                            STL: Matt Morris (7-3) NYY: Clemens (6-4)
                            STL: Jason Simontacchi (4-3) NYY: AndyPet(5-6)
                            STL: Woody Williams (8-1) NYY: Mussina (7-4)



                            I think we're doing pretty good being in 1st place and having gotten there without Pedro for two weeks. He's healthy now and starts tomorrow night.
