Two things so far:

- Correia isn't fooling anyone. Hard hit balls galore.

- Alvarez looks like Doumit at 3rd today.

1-0 Cubs after 1

Doumit never would have made the error, the ball hit that way would have hit him in the head and landed him on the DL...

Hi guys. I can't see the game but I just saw the video clip of Pedro's high throw to first on Gameday.
Did Overbay make any effort to grab that ball? I wonder if he couldn't have caught that.

About to watch the Indians-White Sox on TV. I hope Fausto Carmona pitches well.

Doumit's 1 for 1 in throwing out baserunners. But it was Barney

Walker should have been bunting in that situation. :lol:

Holy smokes! I missed the top of the 5th.. a grand salami by Walker? He's a player! Who is doing play-by-play?
I'm waiting for him to hit a walk off homer so Greg Brown can call it a walk-o-jack!

Just watched the clip of Walker's slam. Greg Brown is horrible. He was surprised that went out. Neil crushed that ball!
I can imagine Mike Shannon or Tom Hamilton calling in that situation.. they would have had no doubt in their minds that was
a homerun.

Carmona is getting knocked around.. 6-0 White Sox after three.

Now McCutchen goes yard. Hey, I could get used to this.

Me too.

Correia settled down nicely. He was scaring the crap out of me in the 1st.

I like this concept of the 'big four':

Off day for Tabata and Pedro, but Cutch and Walker are picking up the slack.

My fantasy team disapproves, but I like.

Pedro is a mess defensively. As the third baseman,that was his ball. He hasn't done one thing right in the field. Very disappointing.

Would have loved it if Perry Hill had stuck around to work on Pedro's fielding.

I think Alvarez will settle down... Has to be a bit excited/nervous

If Joel Hanrahan is going to walk people with a three run lead, start giving the ball to Meek
