So I'm going to attempt to lead another game day thread of reactionary, inconsistent play-by-play for today's game. So here it goes

Posted Image

Wandy Rodriguez, LHP 11-10, 3.51 ERA

vs.

Matt Garza, RHP 8-10, 3.54 ERA

Cubs Lineup:

Castro, S, SS

Barney, D, 2B

Ramirez, A, 3B

Baker, J, RF

Byrd, M, CF

Pena, C, 1B

Soriano, A, LF

Soto, G, C

Garza, M, P

Guess this is a must win game since no LaHair, LeMahieu, Campana... oh well you got to let the starters play if we are going to catch the Reds

I'm going to predict the Cubs get 1 run on 4 hits. It's kind of cool out today, and well you know the rest of the excuse.....
Please don't feed the psychos.

Can anyone come with any logical reason for LaHair not starting? Because starter is a lefty?

I'll argue with myself: But don't we want to know how he does against lefties? So come up with another.

I'd be stretching to come up with one, because I agree with you. The second you, that is.

Here we go. Wow the Astro's team, outside of Carlos Lee, has nobody that I know of.

I like Garza but he takes TOOOOOOO long between pitches, this game needs to be under 4hrs.

Barney HBP... but the 3B ump says it hit the bat and if it did results in a double play, way to be heads up Castro
