Cub's halves of innings have been awfully short this year. Lots of short counts, lots of swings, lots of outs.

It would be nice if the Cubs half innings would last more than 3 minutes.

It would appear that lots of the Cubs players have family gatherings to get to after the game...lots of early swinging. It's almost like they're afraid to get to 2 strikes.

Samardzija looks good, though!

A lot of early swings by our guys. What does that say about Zimmerman's command and what he might do in the second time around facing our lineup?

Zimmerman has outstanding command, so the trend will continue all game. We just have to hope that he throws some hittable early strikes.

I don't think anyone could have asked for more so far from Samardzija. Outstanding start to this game.

Having asked about what Zimmermann's pitching strategy might be later, how about Samardzija? It will be interiesting to see if and how hitters on both sides will adjust.
