Nice ending for Raley. A bit of tension, but all's well that ends well.

Man....I hope someone in the Cubs' line-up breaks out with an extra bagger to light a fire under whoever follows!

Brooks Raley looks like he should be in high school. I hope looks are deceiving and he bangs one for a first hit!

Ohlendorf facing the Cub hitters and setting em down. Man has a .638 ERA. @ 38.

....and THAT IS what makes the Cubs "hitters" (and I use that word loosely) look worst than sickening. They should be killing Ohlendorf.

"The Kid" is losing his edge. Looks like it's gonna' be a hard night for him----unless his mates come through and blunt the missteps here.........Bosio out, Sveum on the phone----It all doesn't ring of encouragement.

Raley makes the bad pitch and the D doesn't help him. @ 68.
The walks were the killer for him.

Having new kids on the block has its exciting element; watching them earn their stripes is something else. We're in for some anxious years ahead-----until they gel.

Quentin just put the nail in Raley's coffin. I hope Sveum pulls him right now.
