As we anticipated, Tom Gorzelanny was acquired as a stop-gap for the Chicago Cubs’ rotation as it misses Ted Lilly. He’ll start three times in Lilly’s absence. Newly acquired Cubs left-hander Tom Gorzelanny made his introductions to the team Saturday, and he’ll get three starts, beginning Tuesday in Cincinnati, to make an impression to possibly […]
Month: August 2009
So much freaking wrath this week. On the brighter side, Geovany Soto (strained oblique) is getting closer to being back with the Cubs. He started his rehab assignment yesterday with the Mesa Cubs of the AZL, DH’d, and went 1 for 3. As for the rest of his rehab stint: Geovany Soto will begin a […]
There aren’t words for how crazy that game was. A couple of star Ramirez’s hurt after being hit by pitches. Zambrano out. Theriot in. Gregg blows. Soriano infield. All over the infield. Derrek Lee (*swoon*).
Although you can never feel too comforted, both are apparently going to be ok. Zambrano said after the game that he would be ready for his next start. His back was stiff due to sleeping on a bad hotel mattress (remember when that happened to Kerry Wood?), and he was pulled from the game because […]
It’s unclear what is wrong with him, but Aramis Ramirez left tonight’s game against the Marlins in the 10th. Ramirez was hit by a pitch on the left elbow, and was clearly in a good deal of pain. He was sacrificed over to second base, and after an intentional walk, he decided to leave the […]
Carlos Zambrano left today’s game against the Marlins in the third inning with “stiffness in his back.” Awesome. If there’s one thing this Cubs team needs, it’s more injuries.
That’s because Mark “the Employee” Prior is about to be released from his minor league contract with the San Diego Padres. So much promise, so much athletic ability, and so little passion. Mark Prior was the greatest pitching talent to enter professional baseball in decades, and we may have seen his last pitch – which […]
Steve Bartman’s life is apparently to be forever linked to that damn foul ball. And I don’t know who is more burdened by it: Cubs fans or Bartman, himself. Ok, it’s probably Bartman. But it’s still pretty annoying. ESPN announced Wednesday that it has commissioned a one-hour documentary on Bartman, the Cubs fan whose attempt […]
It’s easy to pin this one on Carlos Marmol, but it has just as much to do with the lack of offense – specifically the 0-fer in the top two spots in the order – as it does with the bullpen. Eh. Screw it. Still blaming, Marmol.
