    So Cedeno and Pie elevate it from a win to a burial, and Wood finishes the job with a 6 pitch 1-2-3 9th. And now we're getting complete efforts in all phases against good teams too, rather than making our mark by beating up the junior high kids bused in from western PA.

    cedeno really picked up those two jokers derosa and soto. guy has trouble with the zone and those two guys are swinging out of their shoes. bah!

    glad to see cedeno coming around this year with the bat.

    and nice to see 1-2-3 with wood with the big lead (you know closers and big leads. can be bad!)

    Well he's making good contact and working counts, it was only a matter of time. He's always shown the ability, it was just putting it together.

    edit: As I wrote this, Ronny had a 7 pitch at bat and knocked in 2 with an rbi single! Cedeno has also been apart of three double plays today.

    I was thinking the same thing. Nail biter at the ball park. 2-1 Cubs, bottom 8th.

    Angel Hernandez, calling another gem of a game. I wish I can be this bad at my job and not get fired.

    I mean 3 guys with 10+ BBs already and 3 more with either 8 or 9 BBs... in 18 games this season. As a result, we're scoring more runs and getting those Ws. I also know they are hitting better as well compare to last year first month. It's still early in the season, but I just wondering if anybody else was noticing that? I wonder how much Fukudome is influencing the others in being patience at the plate.

    I went to Wrigley yesterday and see that game. That was great seeing like 10 walks in that game and made the starting pitcher leave in the 3rd inning.

    We see the Mets for a 2 game set. Not facing Santana on this trip. I think we'll see Maine, a solid but unspectacular pitcher, and Figueroa, one of this year's feel good story. This is definitely one of the better teams in the NL.

    The Cubs are winning the games they should but the jury is still out on the harder teams and what this team will be like when the injuries and slumps set in.
    i'd agree with that which is helping skew the numbers in the cubs favor right now. But the thing is, its absolutely vital for them to beat up on the teams they are supposed to beat.

    Still, it is good to see them be patient against most of the pitchers so far. the previous few years it didnt matter WHO they were facing, they couldnt work a count to save their lives for the most part.
