Enhanced Box Score: Reds 2, Cubs 3 – May 7, 2011

When Jeff Baker’s 9th inning double somehow bounded into the seats in center field, erasing what would have been the game-winning run, you knew this game was over. That kind of thing happens only to the Cubs (seriously, a ground-rule double by way of a bounce into the stands? at Wrigley?), and the day was done.

But then, like, it wasn’t. I’m still not sure that really just happened. But I’m smiling.

    Pena is starting to look better and Fukudome has managed to defy the post April voodoo that plagues him. (at least for today)

    Wellemeyer just announced his retirement.

    Also, according to MLBTR, the consensus is that unless the Cubs show improvement this season, whatever that means, Hendry’s job security is in doubt.

    Hopefully Hendry’s next year is elsewhere.

    What are we to read from seeing Russell pitch yesterday? Does this mean his starting days are over?

    I think the win is overshadowing the awful decision by Quade to leave Coleman in for the 7th. Woody is ready, Coleman had a great outing and was at his max and yet Quade sits on his ass as until he absolutely has to take him out. I cannot fathom how you do not go with your strength which for our pitching is 7,8,9.

    I honestly think Quade is managing the pitching like the minors; decide how long they’re going for and leave them no matter what.
