It's no longer an off-day.

That's good.

The Cubs have to play today.

That's bad.

There's always the drinking-game strategy. I propose one drink for each of the following:
  • a Cubs pitcher issues a walk
  • a Cubs batter gets a swinging strike (including fouls) on the first pitch of the appearance
  • a Cubs fielding error not otherwise covered (see below)

I propose a finish-your-pint drink at these occurrences:
  • a Cubs batter strikes out with RISP
  • Castro has an inexcusable mental lapse
  • Garza boots a routine throw to first into the stands (more applicable to tomorrow's game)
  • Marmol blows a save
What am I leaving out?

My Ignore List:
Crockett, mountsalami, sans

I am firmly in the Don't Trade Lahair camp.

What does this organization want out of a cheap, left-handed hitter under team control for several years? I don't get it. He's a gift. Take it and run.

Sorry. I'm reacting to a bunch of commenters (who aren't here anyway).

He actually struggled. Be glad The top three hitters were free swingers. :)
Missed location on most of his pitches Glad he's missing low tho.
