Great starting pitching performance? Check. Questionable defense? Check. Disappointing offense? Check. Bullpen blows it? Check.

Sound familiar? That’s the 2009 Cubs, folks. And you watched them last night, right here in 2010. It was kind of like time traveling, which would be cool.

    I didn’t get the decision to pitch to Chipper with a lefty.

    Caridad had to have been available to pitch to Chipper and in 09 and 08 year Chipper’s splits were much more dramatic than they are for his career. Lou should have made him hit lefty.

    Other than that a terrific outing by Dempster, he was on fire.
