    Outcome as expected.... Cedeno strikes out, Blanco grounds into double play. At least we're threatening early.

      • So now we're REALLY beating up on the good teams, and doing it even on days when Lee and Ramirez are unspectacular. Lilly finally pitches a decent game and even works his way out of a jam.

        This is awesome.

        • Impressive homestand for the Cubs. Hopefully the White Sox can sweep the yankees for a Windy City smackdown

            • nice to see lilly finally have a good game. he needed that. the cubs needed that. and hell to beat down the mets is always good too!

              i only got to hear parts of the game (naturally the wasting of the bases loaded situation early on). i was getting nervous when he loaded the bases though there early on.at least he got out of that one.

              • Maybe Blanco should act as Lilly's personal catcher for a little while longer. This was their first game together this season, right?

                  Blanco caught the Cincinati game where Lily gave up 5 runs over 6 innings.
                  To offset some of the pain of being a diehard Cubs fan, I've learned to also be a moderate Yankees fan.

                    After today, I think you're right. Sorry.

                      Since Ronny drove in 5 runs today, maybe we can give him the benefit of a doubt. He is starting to look better.

                        I think I did in a later post.

                        • Good game today...

                          I'm happy about Pie and Cedeno both going 2-5 today and only 2 Ks between them (Cedeno with both Ks). Pie is over .200 now. Woo Hoo... This lineup was interesting, but I like it. I'm glad Lou put Pie in 2 hole and showing the confidence he has in Pie. I believe Pie will get his offense going and hit decent enough where he plays everyday CF. I hope we go with this lineup (with Soto playing) until Soriano comes back.

                          As a team, 8 walks with 3 Ks... beautiful. As it stands in 20 games... the Cubs has 91 walks to 131 Ks.

                          Actually, I think they were about the same because I lettered in all sports, and I was a two-time state decathlon champion.

                          My sophomore year I placed 2nd, and my junior and senior year - I got smart and piled up enough points between myself and second place where I didn't have to run the mile.

                          • Here's a cool trivia...

                            The Cubs have won four straight games by six or more runs.

                            Last time they did that? August 1886.


                            Looks like we're gonna see a "magical" season by the Cubs...

                              Looks like we're gonna see a special season by the Cubs...
                              And we all remember what an amazing season 1886 was for the Chicago White Stockings. That season we finished 90-34 at West Side Park, decades before Weegham/Wrigley in 1914/1916. Our manager/1B Cap Anson was an amazing offensive force even at 34 years old (in 504 AB, 35 2b/.11 3B/10 HR/117 R/147 RBI/29 SB .371/.433/.544/.977). Anson was five years older than any other starter on the team.

                              Of course in 1886, we had 5 total pitchers for the season. Clarkson throwing 466 2/3 IP, McCormick throwing 347 2/3 IP, Flynn 257 IP, Ryan 23 2/3 IP, and Williamson 3 IP.
                              What a Batted Ball is Worth (in terms of a run):
                              Line Drive: .356
                              HBP: .342
                              Non-Intentional Walk: .315
                              Intentional Walk: .176
                              Outfield Fly: .035
                              Groundball: -.101
                              Bunts: -.103
                              Infield Fly: -.243
                              Strikeout: -.287
                              It's now officially Doctor Bob Sacamento, D.C., C.S.C.S., and working on my D.A.B.C.O. (Diplomate American Board of Chiropractic Orthopedics)
