Pat Litasch is doing a horrible job at 3rd base this year. Just horrible.

I think that was a good send. Castro made a mental error by not running hard out of the box. He runs hard right away and he scores.

With anyone but LaHair coming up to bat, I MIGHT agree.

I don't think LaHair would have gotten anything to hit with a runner on third and two outs.

I'd have taken my chances as opposed to Castro being out by a country mile.

Country mile, city mile, frequent flyer miles, I don't care what kind of mile, he was out by 2 or 3 of them, and that's with a horrible throw up the line.

How about a LaHair double or triple here and a Stewart RBI.

I agree. Let your run producers drive him in. Hudson hasn't been great against lefties this year.

Cubs are very aggressive today. Wonder if that was the scouting report on Hudson.

Not hard to play good defense when you're well-positioned.

Fair to wonder how much of the surprisingly awesome pitching is due to defensive upgrades, and better defensive positioning.

I cant remember the last time I seen this many balls smoke by the other team turned into outs because we were in the right spots. I starting to like this Sveum guy.
