For what it's worth, I suspect Game Threads will be a huge bust until next season. But I wanted to make the option available to folks, so thanks for putting this one up, MG.

I really wish Castro would get the day off he needs regular games off, Quade is jeopardizing his health by playing him this so much this season.

Yeah, but he's jeopardizing MY health by continuing to play Soriano.

Wouldn't it be nice if Q had a brain and started LaHair at 1B today or at least split the day with Pena, but he will never bench Pena unless Pena asks for LaHair to start. Pena is a great guy but he will never sit when he is playing for a 2012 contract.

Johnson, Byrd, Soriano, Pena, Ramirez in today's lineup in a meaningless Sept. game against the Pirates. That's a lot of old players in the lineup.
LeHair fever, catch it! Colvin and Action Jackson are hungry, they can't stop eating Wheaties! Josh Vitters just inhaled a can of spinach! Wahoo!!!

Yeah, LeHair is going to get - maybe - two starts this month if Pena stays healthy. It's just the way things work.

Who knows; maybe the Cubs can get him an extra start or two in the outfield.

Quade to September call-ups: "Welcome to the Chicago Cubs boys. The bench is to my left, have a seat and try not to get any splinters in your ass."
Please don't feed the psychos.

Hate that I'm not going to be around to waste time here on this thread today, but I have actual work to do.... So, please quote and repost the following as needed for me, thanks:
  • "Oh, look, Pena struck out with runners in scoring position. Again."
  • "That's another error for Castro. He really needs a day off."
  • "Oh, look, Pena struck out with runners in scoring position. Again."
  • "Why hasn't Quade taken Dempster out yet? What the hell?"
  • "Oh, look, Pena struck out with runners in scoring position. Again."
  • "Oh, no... Marmol's hit and/or walked the bases loaded with no outs again."
  • "Oh, look, Pena struck out with runners in scoring position. Again."

So I'm SUPER STOKED I just found out that my Samsung Blu-ray player has the MLB TV app so I just paid the $19.99 September price and now I can watch all the games. :D

Only complaint so far is that it keeps jumping btwn HD and non-HD but who cares i get to watch baseball :P

And even better I don't have to listen to commercials!

Go Cubs GO!

LaHair is in the dugout... over/under of him getting an at-bat?

I'll bet he gets one at bat late. Pinch hitting against their closer with 2 outs and nobody on. Anything less than a HR and Quade will claim he looked overmatched.
