i think my ideal lineup would be
lahair
castro
lahair
castro
lahair
lahair
castro
lahair
pitcher

this way we have good obp up top and solid production all the way through, also has a nice left/right balance and the best part is there arent many cubs in this lineup

i love how aggressive the cubs are being on the bases, but there's a fine line between aggression and wrecklessness.

They've been on the wrong side of that line too many times lately, no?


i just want to see them make better decisions on the bases.

Travis Wood has been pretty good, all things considered, methinks.

i know sori has been better but definitly not 100 percent effort on that play

You just want him to replace Volstad. :)

Wonder what the condition of the outfield is right. Could be real shitty and hard to run all out on old legs.

I wish Alfonso had dropped the crutch and made a play on that ball. A left fielder with average speed could prevent our SS from potentially injuring himself...

I think the mental condition of both players was the biggest difference: Castro thought he had a chance and Soriano wasn't interested in finding out.

Two nice innings for Wood, 6 pitch and then a 13 pitch.

Looks like he can hit too.
