I can appreciate giving a pitcher a chance to right himself, but not at the risk of ignoring the shit Villanueva was dumping on the game and his team.  Sveum acted, but I have to believe it's too late. The damage has been done. And even though it's only the 5th inning.....Gotta' blame the manager for this loss.

Or the starting pitcher, or give the other team credit.  Not sure any option to replace V this early was going to be a good option.  Oh well, lets hope we can score more against their pen than they can score on ours.

Maybe Sveum was waiting for the Rockies to get a big enough lead to get Bowden some work

How in the world can that only be out 2?  hasn't this half inning been going on for an hour or so?

At least Coors is prone to big scoring from both sides.

I'm as big of a Cubs fan as anyone, but i'm not eating Bulls balls to assist in a rally in a lost season.  Sorry.

Man, watching the game at work and got busy. Was 1-0 last I saw, now 7-2? This is going to be a long night.

.......sooooo......Junior struck out.   BUT.......he still showed he knew what he was doing.  Like so many of our Cub batters he didn't swing at pitches too far ot to reach.  He exercised a good eye and took the count to 3-2 after being behind in the count.  So, yes.  Junior knows......

This season may be lost, but that doesn't mean playing to win is unimportant.  Everyone (including the manager) should be playing to win the game underway.  That is the primary aim of the competition.  We know the Cubs won't surge into a playoff contention, but neither should we accept turning a blind eye to losing.  Day in and day out, performance counts.

What does that have to do with eating rocky mountain oysters as a "rally cap" of sorts?  That's what I was posting about, since it was what Len and JD were doing.

Eh - they're a lot like chicken wings.  Once you get past the  obvious YUK facotr, they are actually pretty tasty.  Of course if you get one even a little under cooked it will cause you to gag a bit and bring all kinds of unhealthy thoughts to mind.
