Gonna have to try to meet you at Wrigley in mid-September. My older daughter had oral surgery today and its not looking like we'll be going to the game on Wednesday afternoon.
Have fun and my fingers are crossed that the "good" Bedard shows up tonight.

I don't like them putting Marte at leadoff. He is not a leadoff hitter and they are trying to force him to be because we the two we thought we may have are failures. Gonna jack up the kids development. If Presley is in the lineup there is no excuse for him to not lead off.

Yes there is: he's not any good at leading off.

Being fast is not a prerequisite to being a good leadoff hitter. Getting on base is.

Mesoraco (Reds catcher) will be facing a suspension for contact with umpire.

Seems like the umps expand the zone when Pedro is batting.

Didn't say being fast was. How many minor league AB's and pro AB's has Presley had? How bout Marte? Marte never walks.

Bedard is throwing BP at this point. Rotation is trending toward the 2nd half bed shitting.

The Cubs are killing the Pirates. They are pitching better and hitting better than the Pirates. I knew it. I had a bad feeling about this series based on how the Pirates won and lost against a poor Houston team.

AJ, Karstens, and Wandy better give this Pirate team some quality starts down the road here or the Bucs are going to fall flat on their face again...JMac and Bedard are screwed up that's for sure. :?

Another Bedard start, another shit show. I might as well go to bed. No use staying up for this garbage.

I know I'm in the minority, but tonight is a perfect example of why I said I preferred Lincoln staying in the rotation...and I'd still be tempted to put him back in. Bedard and Correia are BP pitchers. Guys wait on there average fastballs and tee off.

The Cubs are giving a clinic on having good approaches at the plate.
