      I don't think Guzman is the one that should have gone down to make room for Pie. I would have dropped Ohman. They have 3 lefties in the pen.

        I just saw his throw at home plate. Great play by him.

          That play at the plate by Pie just shows why a good defensive CF can really make a difference.

            It's about time for Pie to get to the big show. I've been anxious to see him at Wrigley for so long!

            Ohman blows it again (at least that's what I'm seeing from the box score)... The only reason this guy is in the majors is because he's a lefty, and since we've already got TWO other lefties in the bullpen (Eyre and Cotts), there really is no need for him here. Guzman should be back up here pretty soon.
            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

                You can't be as anxious as he's been. In 2005, he was on the fast track to at least get a September callup before spraining his ankle in August. Then again last year, he was a little ticked off that once Iowa's season was done with and MLB rosters expanded that he wasn't called up then.

                Ohman blows it again (at least that's what I'm seeing from the box score)...

                Ohman didn't pitch bad, the run he allowed was partly aided by the defensive miscue of Jones in LF. Ohman is in the MLB as purely a situational lefty specialist, he handles lefthanded hitters better than either Eyre or Cotts. Whom do much better against right-handed hitting than Will.

                As for Guzman, he'll probably join the Iowa rotation so at least he'll get more action than sitting the bench with the parent club for now. But there is no question Angel will be back, who knows maybe he comes back and takes Miller's spot in the rotation.

                    Think we could do a Murton/Floyd-right pie-center soriano-left outfield??

                    I just don't see bring him up for a week to send him back down.

                      I going to guess that we might see more of Floyd than Murton after tonights game.

                        even before tonight I would agree with you. Floyd has been hot lately.

                        I still like murton.

                            We'll get an idea of how Felix Pie handels MLB pitching after he gets some more at bats, but this seems like a good idea, it gives the team some more defense (obviously sorely needed). I'd be willing to drop Jacque Jones and get some relief pitching (Instead of Ohman, but he was great vs. lefties last year, so who knows).

                            Here's to hoping Murton gets hot soon.

                              Yeah it wouldn't hurt me to see jones go. Nothing personal we just have alot of outfielders. Finding a spot for theriot everyday is what I really want to see. either theriot ss and derosa 2nd or vise versa. Isturius = waste of madox trade.
