Enhanced Box Score: Angels 7, Cubs 6 – June 18, 2010

Admit it. The Cubs came back just enough to piss you off. Defense was once again the primary culprit, though an early exit for Carlos Silva (and, thus, early entrance by the bullpen) didn’t help. Lou Piniella inexplicably inserted Tyler Colvin – a guy known for a good batting average, good slugging, but not particularly […]

Enhanced Box Score: Athletics 2, Cubs 3 – June 17, 2010

The Randy Wells performance and the late inning heroics were sufficiently awesome to overcome the bitter taste of what appeared to be a still-struggling offense. It’s the first series win in nearly a month, so we’ll all take it. And I’ve been waiting all season to say this…


Enhanced Box Score: White Sox 0, Cubs 1 – June 13, 2010

All it took to finally get Ted Lilly a win was a no-hitter into the 9th inning. The Cubs have scored a total of seven runs in Lilly’s last five starts. The only other game he won during that stretch? Another 1-0 game. But the enhancement today goes to a man who clearly needs an […]

Enhanced Box Score: White Sox 2, Cubs 1 – June 12, 2010

Can you feel the Crosstown Cup slipping away? I, for one, am devastated. Another lifeless, pathetic effort from the Cubs’ increasingly aged offense. At least Ryan Theriot is heating up. Still, you’ve gotta feel bad for Carlos Silva, who had a chance to do something truly special – even if wins and losses are a terrible, […]


Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 1, Astros 3 – June 4, 2010

The layoff wasn’t any cure to the Cubs’ offensive woes. If you take out an anomalous 5-0 win against the Cardinals last week, the Cubs have scored a whopping seven runs in their last six games. And yet, here the Cubs were again, with a lineup that featured Ryan Theriot, Derrek Lee, and Aramis Ramirez […]

Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 2, Pirates 3 – June 1, 2010

If you thought the Cubs were actually going to win that game 2-1 going into the 8th, you simply haven’t been watching this year. This game – as virtually every loss since late April has been – was all on the offense. Lou did the right thing by switching out several of the starters, but […]

Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 1, Pirates 2 – May 31, 2010

A handful of times each season, there is a game – a single loss – that plays out in such a way that it is impossible to console yourself that a loss is a loss is a loss, and even the very best of teams will lose 60 times. This was one of those times. The […]
