Wow, that story about Maholm getting his head broken, and fixed, is amazing. I can't believe he's still throwing pitches to the world's premier hitters from 60 feet away. Mental note: do not get into a fight with Paul Maholm.

Gives me the heebie jeebies...i was a softball pitcher and was beaned in the head and was out for two weeks. To this day, i cringe when i see any player have a ball hit back. scary shit

Hudson looks good. 6 batters, 6 groundballs. Let keep up Maholm.

I want to like Ian Stewart, I really do. But he's making it damn near impossible. How is he not hitting 7th with Geo hitting 8th.

From Gameday is looks like Maholm isn't using the corners. Is he really pounding the middle of the plate?

Similar feeling here. I was a softball pitcher and took one in the, er...heebie jeebies...and everything is fine (three days of ice and anti-inflammatories), but I moved to OF after that. No fucking around. I'm not lobbing it in there from 45 feet for guys swinging with aluminum bats.

Maholm is some kind of crazy if he can face ML hitters after that injury. He might be my new favorite Cubs pitcher.

This is an example of teams using Bryan's patience against him with two quick strikes. He might swing at earlier pitches in later ABs.


Ive seen LaHair jump on some first pitches a few time. Plus hes been a good 2 strike hitter so far, so I wouldn't worry.

That's why I don't play softball; risk an injury for something far inferior to baseball? No thanks

Is that you, Jay Anderson? New pic, new name?

edit: nevermind, just saw your name in your signature!

Hey Darwin, if you take more walks your OBP and BA won't be nearly the same.

Tim Hudson is not a bad pitcher. But, you know, he IS coming back from offseason back surgery. So, like, maybe ... beat him.

Why, WHY do you defer to Moreland's attendance guesses, Hughes? He's consistently wrong. And more than a bit annoying.

He was hammered in his last outing.
