DeRosa hit the go ahead 2 run HR. Yeah scrappiness!!!


Mark DeRosa was 100% awesome in 2008 (and not bad at all in 2007).

I don't go much for hero worship, but he killed it that year. Since then... meh.

Yea, think about all the Cubs that had career years that year. Derosa, Theriot, Soto, Aramis had probably his best year (with the Cubs), Fontenot killed it, Edmonds hit a crap-ton of home runs in like a month, Reed Johnson had a great year, Micah Hoffpauir was a demi-god, and the best hitter on the team was big Z!

That lineup was stacked, I don't know how they found playing time for all those guys.


That was the best Cubs team I -- or, likely, any of us -- have ever seen. They were mashers.

But that fall fade...

*sigh*

50+ day games in mid-summer Chicago ... smh.

2008 and the 2004 team that SHOULD have made the playoffs. My two favorites of recent decades. probably too many pitching injuries (Wood, Prior)... but I still cannot believe the 04 team didn't make the playoffs. damnit!
