It's official. Chris Volstad has the worst luck of all time.

That inning was about 70% bad luck, 30% Volstad.

But the Cubs are 100% fucked...


he gave up two trash hits (one his own fault because apparently he can't field his position OR pitch), but the rest were legit. plus a four pitch walk.

Well, if EITHER of those trash hits had been converted, he would've gotten out of the inning without giving up a run. Those "legit" hits were lucky too, cause if they hadn't been hit into the holes, they would've been easy outs.


so ground balls that are hit between the infielders are lucky?

Yes.

Voltster-----5 or more runs in the 1st inning his last five starts. Does Sveum know something more than what to expect?

I wonder.........Does Sveum even know his guys are getting the shaft by the home plate ump on those calls? Are players staying mute or what?

Hahah, did anybody else like Brenly comparing Campana's swing to college softball? I wish they had "You play ball like a GIRL" from the sand lot cued up.
Even if it takes forever.

I know Dale said he doesn't like to argue, but there's a time for it, dude.
