Let’s play one!
Archive for June, 2011
The Cubs have their second make-up game in as many days, and welcome the Giants for a four-game set.
I can understand them looking at Wood, but Grabow? Hey, whatever it takes.
Marlon Byrd hit by a pitch in his first rehab game after being hit by a pitch, Darwin Barney to return, Carlos Pena maybe to be traded, and Bobby Scales likes Ham, among other bullets today.
“Veteran status” doesn’t affect how Quade addresses his players’ effort, says the Cubs’ skipper.
Ah, so the key to the Cubs’ success? More makeup games!
Nick Jonas took batting practice with the Cubs today before the Rockies game.
Marlon Byrd’s face is getting some extra protection, Randy Wells still feels good, Starlin Castro is an All Star with defensive problems, and the Triangle Building has more issues.
Quade feels like Castro didn’t hustle on an early play yesterday and let the youngster know it was unacceptable.
I’d say the organizational meetings taking place this week just took a turn.
Jeff Samardzija’s annoyance, Kerry Wood’s blister, Chris Carpenter’s success, the Cubs’ basepath woes, and the unfairness of the NL Central feature today.
I’m told the Cubs lost this evening.
