Enhanced Box Score: Diamondbacks 5, Cubs 7 – May 1, 2010

Well, it was going to happen sooner or later. Carlos Silva had his first bad outing – and it was really bad. Fortunately the bullpen really stepped up and gave the Cubs a chance to come back and win things (a Carlos Marmol-induced heart attack notwithstanding). But it’s the Arizona bullpen that gets the enhancement […]


Enhanced Box Score: Nationals 3, Cubs 1 – April 27, 2010

You can’t be upset when the Cubs are dominated by Livan “Cy” Hernandez. My tongue is mostly in my cheek, but then again, Hernandez really has been dominant this year. Another good outing from Tom Gorzelanny that results in a loss, but a familiar whipping boy gets the enhancement today.

Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 5, Brewers 1 – April 24, 2010

Welcome back, Mr. Lilly. This game showed us exactly what has changed with Lilly’s return – Lilly, himself, dominated as we’ve come to expect, and Carlos Zambrano came out of the pen to preserve a lead. Preserve the lead he did… but he did give up the Brewers’ only run, and allowed plenty of baserunners.

Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 1, Mets 6 – April 19, 2010

Sometimes I feel like I’m writing a Dan Brown novel here, because it’s the same story, recycled again and again. Except here, we don’t at least get any exciting revelations about seventeenth century freemasons. The starting pitching was great, the offense was pathetic, and the bullpen imploded. If there is a certain cure out there […]


Enhanced Box Score: Astros 3, Cubs 2 – April 18, 2010

Cubs anal. For explanation, see here. It’s the season in a microcosm: offense fails to come through with any kind of regularity or predictability, the starter throws a brilliant game only to see the bullpen blow it, and the Cubs lose to a team they should be pounding.

Enhanced Box Score: Astros 2, Cubs 7 – April 16, 2010

That was actually a much closer call than the score leads on. The Cubs were basically being dominated by … Felipe Paulino? I guess it could be worse – they could have been owned by Carlos Silva. I kid, I kid. But seriously, who is this guy? I think most folks would say that Silva […]
