I hate the Cubs sooo much. Living in the Chicago area for half of the year for school has made me hate them even more. I went to a baseball camp in NYC back in 2004 and i was around Yankee fans all the time, and i can say Cubs fans are alot more annoying and worse. I can't stand alot of the Yankee fans voices though, that gets on my nerves.

Mr. Harden is mowing us down. Doesn't look good.

Me too. I lived in Chicago for 8 years in the mid-90's. Hate the Cubs, and adopted the White Sox as my American League team during that time.

Duke is getting hit hard. He gives up another HR. Not good.
Pirates look clueless at the plate against Harden.

This stinks! :x

Lets' see if Harden follows the same pattern. After his first strike to a hitter which has been a fastball, he has come back with a breaking ball for a strike followed by cheese up in the zone. That pattern resulted in 3 K's last inning. Jaramillo hits the 1-0 offering. Jack walks on 4 straight.

Cutch is getting a steady diet of breaking balls lately. Strike 1 curve, high cheese ball one, high breaking ball. Slider strike 2. Breaking ball out of the zone. strike 3. There is your league adjustment to Cutch. He has to lay off the bad ones.

Hi Buccomaniacs.. good to be back live!! work made me sleep at game times lately, but now it's back 2 live baseball again..

Let's get something started here in the 4th.. Harden looks finesse, but i will not accept a loss 2day :)


Why is Moss in this line up and Young on the bench.. its not a world of difference, it's a univere!!


Way to start Nyjer!! here we go!!

Good news! Littlefield is scouting for the Cubs so we shouldn't have to worry about them in the future. :D

Morgan, fastball strike one. Fastball single. Different pattern second time through. Smart guy. Sanchez, braking ball, ball one. Fastball ball two. Fastball fly out to right. LaRoche, breaking ball ball one. Fastball strike one. Wicked heat. Fastball fouled off. Strike 2. Fastball fouled off. Breaking ball ball 2. Breaking ball down and in swinging K. Moss. Fastball ball 1. Fastball ball 2. Breaking ball hanging strike 1. Fastball down and in 4-3. This is why he is a major league pitcher. Changing the pattern second time through, keeping guys off balance. I won't bore anyone with anymore of this but this is how you get guys out. He also went a little more with fastballs with Morgan on first and less than two out.

That's very interesting. Thanks for posting. Do you have a method for writing down these pitches or do you have a memory like a steel trap?
