The Cubs took it to the Cardinals again, and Zambrano looked great again. Tyler Colvin hit his 20th homer of the year, and it was a swell game all around. What else is there to say, but…

    It’s nice for Koyie Hill that he got a couple of hits, but why was he even playing? If you are going to give Soto the day off, why isn’t Wellington Castillo out there? Hill won’t be on the Cubs next year, we aren’t sure about Castillo yet. It seems like common sense to me that with 16 games to go in a lost season that you would get the guys that might play for you next year some playing time to see what you have. Playing aging vets who wont be back (Nady too) screams desperation and self preservation from our mangaer. Quade is the perfect manager for JIm Hendry, do what you have to do to keep your job and make yourself look good, regardless of what is good for the future of the team.

    Jeff nailed it. We should create a bumpersticker: “Everything Is Backwards With Hendry.”
