Garza looks good, Phillies go down easy after Rollins lead off single. Man this place is empty today.

Start winning and they will come.

That's not how Cubs fans operate.

Some of them do, though ...

I reckon there's a name for them.

Hey everyone so I have pledged to drink until Cubs win and will drop in from time to time but will be more active on twitter- easier to use my iphone on twitter than her. But let's kick some Philly ass!

It's not like Kendrick isn't a possible good pitcher down the road, but I wish the Cubs could light into a fill-in guy like teams did to James Russell and Doug Davis last year.

Also, I don't like how Castillo is catching very much. If you notice, he isn't really giving a good target for the pitcher. He doens't hold his glove up there good.

That will also affect his ability to frame the pitch. he needs to improve on that IMO.

All right. Top of the order. Let's see something on the ground, Tony.

That K by Castillo was killer. He's overswinging something fierce

Needs to make the adjustment from AAA pitching to MLB pitching. Give him some time to adjust. I thought he was pretty patient for his first AB's.

This should be fun! Campana is on to lead off. I don't know much about Kendrick pickoff move but he should be on 2nd pretty soon here.

Its awesome to see Campana on base so often this year! One the most exciting baserunners in the league

Ha, just tweeted that the single is going to be a triple for Campana, and now he's already on second.

Yeah, I said this yesterday. Time, for him will be key. I think he'll prove to be a solid catcher in the long run for sure.

That was just an incredible swing by Barney. How he took that ball to second, I'll never know. Nicely done.

Is Rickett's paying off the umps this year? We have gotten some calls to go our way. It looked like he was out on that one.
