Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 6, Pirates 3 – July 9, 2011

The Ryan Dempster/Mike Quade dust-up will be the primary discussion piece from this game (about which, more later), but, setting that aside, the Cubs had a nice win here.

    top 4 is probably about what it should have been all along

    1. Michigan Goat

      Agreed, which means Q is bound to change it

      1. Joe

        I bet right now he’s thinking “Alright, this one works. Now let’s try this…”

          Can you say Hill our next leadoff man

  2. Ramy16

    I wish the cubs would let Hill go and bring up Wellington Castillo

      The only problem with that is, you are asking a kid that is still learning to sit 5 days a week.

    I can remember when Quade was a complete moron for NOT batting him 3rd.

    1. Ian Afterbirth

      I cringed every time he had Castro batting third.

    Fukudome has only 12 RBI???
    Eesh!

    I really enjoyed listening to Soup Campbell last night. Maybe Q will canned at the break, Brenly will coach in the interim and Soup can do the color. I know these moves don’t mean much in the standings for this year but it would at least send the message from Ricketts that this BS is unacceptable. Ricketts has gotta see that Q and Hendry’s cred is already shot. He’s only hurting himself by leaving them in the job.
