For the life of me I can't figure why the runner on third trys to advance on contact when the play is in front of them and there is no force.

3 runs in the first? Looking like we're fucked again.

I blame hill. If he had caught the ball maybe the blind ump would have seen it was a strike.

That close up shot of Garza showed how pissed he is at himself. I am inclined to think it's the wild throw to first that has caused him to become unwound.......

Nope. Can't agree. The ump should be looking at where the ball crossed the plate, NOT where the catcher catches the ball.

I agree but unfortunately the umpires do look at where the catcher catches the pitch. It makes me angry

Soriano is looking good enough this month to be trade bait. Please someone bite. Please.

Garza puts too much pressure on himself as it is, im pretty sure the lack of offense and that wild throw did not really help his psyche.

Only if Cubs eat his contract. Not much in return. Loose/Loose

Len pointed out the Cubs have outhit the Pirates in their losses to them. I say so what? If those hits didn't come in risp moments, who cares. Without timely hits to bring-'em in, we lose.

Many singles and not much else. More XBHs and a home run here and there with people on base would be nice.
