"Cliff Lee is still good."

 

Let's change that a bit: "Cliff Lee is still good." .....but Rusin proves to be a bit better.        There.  That should do it.  

 

Nothing like putting Rusin on the spot.

Looks like just you and me today....

 

Not sure why I'm watching - must be because I'm a Cubs fan.  Can't think of any other reason.

We're gluttons for punishment I guess........still I have a feeling the Cubs will will this one, though I may not be up to see the end of it all.......

Looks to me like you could get lake in three strikes if they were all curves of some kind.  Dang!  Soriano must have taught him to hit a slider.

I have a little trouble calling a wild pitch on a ball that goes untouched through the catchers 6 hole.

I may be talking out of my ass, but I don't understand why Rizzo is held in such high regard.  He doesn't come through to my eye of observing him as a top-notch 1st baseman or hitter,  What am I missing?

tied.....well, at least Rusin can feel the game (or Rizzo) hasn't gotten the best of him.
