Demp seems to be in a "settling-in" phase. Hope he gets to that "I'm the boss of all of you" stage. And of course, that the Cubs bats wake up from their anemic state.

Demp is having trouble. He seems to wants to fine cut the plate edges for strikes, but can't do it---- and then when he gets behind, he has to serve it up on a hit-me platter. Hope he finds his groove.....

Several of those "fine" pitches have been strikes though according to Gameday.

Question: Did the ump's call match what gameday showed?

Nope, doesn't mean he was right. I'm a big proponent of letting computers call balls and strikes going forward. They tend to be much more consistent.

Apparently there is no such thing as a called strike when Dunn hits. For fucks sake.

Fuckin' Dempster. One time.....a mistake. Twice (back-to-back) not a mistake.

Yeah he did, but damn that ball carried really well. It would be nice to see some of our hitters take advantage of that for a change.

Yeah.....well in this day-n-age, the technology can accurately see what someone has hidden up their butt. Do we want that for baseball? The thing is: How much of the human element do we want to eliminate and who, what or where do we direct our reactions? Or do we just sit and be quiet......there's something to be said for "healthy tension".

Not if they keep swing at everything near the zone. Danks threw 6 strikes last inning.

Yep, guess we can't blame the offense this time around. Well, it isn't helping he still isn't getting any, but holy crap Demp looks horrible tonight.

You're talking to the wrong guy. I'd eliminate umpires the first chance I get, especially this year. They have been god awful all around the league.

I respect your position, even though I think it is too extreme for this old school guy. We will have to agree to disagree.
