Once Pena walked last night, I got the feeling that the Cubs were going to squander the scoring opportunity. I was sad to be right, even after the Cubs got a break because of Casey McGehee's puzzling throw home without getting an additional out because he jumped OVER third base.

Also, Blake DeWitt sucks.

It's not very often that you see a guy striking out over 11 hitters per nine, walking less than 2, and still have an ERA of almost 5. He's only even allowing a hit per inning. He's allowing a good number of homers, but nothing so outrageous that you'd expect his HR rate to overwhelm his other peripherals.

IOW, very strange season Greinke's having. In unrelated news, I expect the Cubs to get shut down hard tonight. Hope Z's up to the task.

Cubs hit Greinke very well at Wrigley so we'll see. Speaking of Zambrano, word is that the Cubs are pushing hard for the Yankees to take him off their hands.

Someone should let Carlos know that he isn't going to be able to act like a baby if his ERA remains in the 5.00 neighborhood.

Why the #### is Blake DeWitt starting in LF? The Cubs have many problems-starting with Mike Quade.

OK, so maybe I was wrong about tonight.

I wish the Cubs were run like the Brewers. This is one nasty bullpen they have put together.

How good the Cub pen is lacks relevance when the offense can't score.

At least the Cubs are taking away any delusions Hendry might have about not being a seller this week.
