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.

I suspect he'll use Campy first

How can that be? Those of us not watching would love to hear how that happened.

Not necessary, I just thought there might be some simple explanation like: Ramirez fell down trying to field a slow roller, Castro then tripped over Ramirez and dislocated his hip, etc. :blink:

Pena leadoff HR in the 2nd inning, his 25 leads the club... remember when Sosa would have like 25 a month?

I did not see that anywhere in TWC's list of quotes, there must be some mistake. ;)

Sitting LaHair was the right move! Quade vindicated! Don't fire him!

Dempster throwing a ton of pitches today. Seems like he hasn't been as economical this year as in recent years past (and not just because he's been getting hit).

Okay so the infield double was the result of another lapse in Castro and possibly Barney. Castro took fielded a grounder deep toward third made a nice single hop throw to Pena (he shouldn't have even made the throw it wasn't even close), the runner was safe and then the runner, Harrison, noticed nobody was covering 2nd base and he just took off... great baserunning, horrible fundamentals... typical Cubs baseball

ReJo misplayed a ball off the wall that lead to a leadoff triple... basically Dempster is even getting hit hard or striking people out
