Just when I was thinking all the focus would be on Shark coming off of a couple of rough starts.

At least DeJesus isn't starting.

 

Or, alternatively: aw man, DeJesus isn't starting.

Is it bad if a small part of me is kind of hoping he gets a game winning RBI in a pinch hit situation?

First out of the game on a sacrifice, how often does that happen?

Cubs jump out and spot Samardzija a three run lead in the first. How often does that happen?

Just tuning in - looks like I missed a fairly eventful first inning.   I'm going to have to bad mouth the line up more often!

Looks like Murphy is the new middle of the order bat.

Murphy with a .308 BABIP, small sample size and all (47 PA now), but it doesn't appear to be JUST a hot streak.  Sure doesn't seem possible to keep up the pace though - .310 batting average.

But I'm sure enjoying watching the ride - it's at least a feel good story for as long as it lasts and heaven knows we can use a few feel good stories right now!!

Speaking of feel good - it sure feels good to be on the other side of a beat down, even if it is still  early.

Too bad we're in feast or famine mode.  Wish we could save some of this for tomorrow.
