I'll vote for no offense.  If you don't score you can't win.  You can win a slug fest.  Well maybe YOU can.  Not sure about the Cubs right now....

What the fuck, Jake Arrieta?

I guess this is the Jake Arrieta that the Orioles gave up on.

 

Control seems really bad from the stretch.  The stuff is definitely there, interested to see if he can plug out a couple solid innings from here

 

 

Would have like to see Rizzo bail him out on Suzuki's 2 run single, that was a very makeable play at first, but the walks are definitely the bigger issue.

 

Man, this reminds me of Chris Volstad last year (shudders.)  An okay inning or two followed by shitting the bed with explosive diarrhea.  Meanwhile, cubs bats make career 4.9 ERA with hitters averaging .290 lifetime against--Russ Ohlendorf--look like a Cy Young candidate.  

 

Look out Kershaw.

 

Control is definitely an issue tonight.  It's also a big reason I don't want Phil Hughes this winter.

 

I hate nights like these.....

We're running out of time.   If the Cubs want to get back in this game----let alone win it---the runs have to come like diarrhrea.

Thought that was a political reference -I wondered what Nixon had to do with tonight's game.

Can someone tell Dale it's okay to play relievers longer than one measly inning?

 

Not exactly a 'top 10,' but one of the things he does that annoys me as a manager.
