I just gotta' keep sounding off about Sveum possibly letting Villanueva go on.  The Cubs don't have the offensive to overcome huge leads.  C'mon Sveum do the necessary.

Cubs don't have the pen to pick up the last seven innings. Boden has gone the longest with two innings.

Me thinks our swing man/long reliever is already in the game.

Shit.  Sometimes I hate the whole idea of being patient.....especially when doom is not letting you see any hope of light ahead.  Sveum  WTF do you need to be convinced?

Every time the Rockies hit one in the air now I immediately hope it's not leaving the park.

It's obvious I don't think ahead.  I'm a "now" guy.  If things aren't going right "now", I act.  If something I hadn't anticipated comes up, I will find a way of dealing with it in the new "now".  But......you may be a better baseball man than I.  I'm just a fan who doesn't want to see this kind of shit.

Cubs finally get first hit. In the third.

I can hear Dale's post game statement now.

" We lost to the best pitcher in baseball".

Hello, BN world. Long (ish) time reader, infrequent commenter, first time poster. Thought I'd give these game threads a whirl.

 

Go Cubs.

Go Cubs.

Welcome aboard. It's been a fairly calm one so far.

Bieber isn't allowed around here though.

I react better on the fly too. But a Cub pitcher really hasn't been blown out this early all year. Some times you just have to let them take their lumps. These kind of games are expected thru-out the year. Just hope they are kept to a minimum. With the success the Cubs have had of late people expect more winning. Remember this team is still Santa's misfit toys. Better baseball man? Just another fan.

Anybody remember the guy on the Marlins a long time ago who went face first into the ivy? If I remember right he caught it and dropped it after he hit the wall. I think it was the early 00s.

I do not. Of course, there is a lot I don't remember from 2000.
