It would be easy to say that Justin Germano’s night was undone by a single bad pitch, but that’s probably going too far. He was in trouble throughout his outing, and when you walk five guys (and hit a guy) in five innings, you’re going to give up some runs.

Darwin Barney gets enhanced again …

    I’m going to go all Ann Murray on you guys and give you a “little good news today.”

    I ordered my new Georgia vanity plate a few days ago…and it should be here any day now.


    Do we like it?? Yes? No??

    I’m dang excited!

    • Fishin Phil

      I like it!

        1CUBFAN was taken and CUBS4ME was my second choice.

        HOLYCOW was my 3rd choice…I’m kinda regretting I didn’t make that my 2nd…as that is epic.

        All in all i am happy though…

        I just want to go on record, once again, saying dear God I love the Cubs and all things Cublike…and I’ll be a fan until the day I die.

          I like the CUBS4ME because it will likely let more people know your a cubs fan since it doesn’t require them to be as familiar with Harry Caray.

            My line of thinking too, yet Im not over concerned about the perception of others.
            ‘I gotta be me!!!”

            I’ve never posted a photo here, but it seems like it will be an easy proposition so once it arrives, you all will see it.

    It’s not a Cubs game if Russell and Camp don’t pitch.

        The pickinin’s are slim … but 4 INN, 1 hit, 5 Ks from the pen – darn good!

        Plus a PH RBI double by LaHair …

        One game closer to that coveted 2nd pick!

    I do not think the Cubs will win to many games with Barney supplying all the offense. In a 24 hour period the Cubs played 2 games and had a total of 6 hits, Barney got 4 of them.

    Maybe if he can get his slugging percentage up.

    I’m not one of those who are rooting for losses to get the best pick….but it does take the sting out a bit doesn’t it? On a different note, on that distant day when we are competitive again, I think we will be able to piece together a very good bullpen out of homegrown talent. Just got to find some starters.
