Man, can Castro be frustrating on defense.

I like the intention on Castro's part since he makes second if he doesn't over-slide the base. Still a frustrating miscue.

I don't mind the aggressive baserunning-its the little things of his defense that can drive you up a wall. Makes you wonder if he will stick long term at SS.

I like Geo. He hits homeruns for the Cubs.

You have to wonder why the Cubs are wasting time with Lopez when Casey Coleman is at AAA. I mean, what is the upside in running him out there every 5 days?
   6. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: August 11, 2011 at 01:19 AM (#3897571)
Castro has looked like Soriano any time he bats with the bases loaded this season.
   7. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: August 11, 2011 at 01:20 AM (#3897573)
Lopez obviously isn't in the future plans of the team, but is Coleman? I've always gotten the sense that he's rotation filler that you never hear from again after a season or two.
   8. SteveM. Posted: August 11, 2011 at 01:24 AM (#3897577)
To me Walks, that is the thing. Run out there for the last two months and let him sink or swim.
   9. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: August 11, 2011 at 02:07 AM (#3897633)
Wait, why didn't Quade pinch hit for BPJ if he was going to yank him so quickly this inning? Seems silly to concede an out with a runner on second so you can send up a relief pitcher that you're going to have a short leash the next inning.
   10. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: August 11, 2011 at 02:09 AM (#3897639)
They really need to end this guest conductor for the 7th inning stretch. It's so painful more times than not.
   11. SteveM. Posted: August 11, 2011 at 02:22 AM (#3897656)
I actually liked the Santo family doing it. I have no clue why Quade didn't doubleswitch when he put in BPJ.
   12. SteveM. Posted: August 11, 2011 at 02:39 AM (#3897673)
I don't give a #### about sabermeterics-Campy is just fun to watch out there.
   13. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: August 11, 2011 at 02:43 AM (#3897678)
I came back to post the same thing. You can tell he's becoming quite the fan favorite, too.
   14. SteveM. Posted: August 11, 2011 at 02:45 AM (#3897681)
Frankly, I think there is a lot of value in having your 25th guy with speed like his. At the very least, he is Soriano's defensive replacement in the late innings.
   15. SteveM. Posted: August 11, 2011 at 02:52 AM (#3897699)
This was the good Marmol-his stuff was filthy tonight.
   16. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: August 11, 2011 at 02:56 AM (#3897704)
Man, Desmond look PISSED after he struck out.
   17. SouthSideRyan Posted: August 11, 2011 at 02:59 AM (#3897709)
Yeah, there's nothing wrong with Campana in his current role. He appears to be a very good defender and baserunner. There's nothing wrong with having one of those guy on the team, but until he starts walking, he shouldn't rise above bunter/defender/baserunner. Now you can't have a bench of strictly specialists, but if you have guys who can hit in the other spots, there's no reason to not have Campana on the roster for the league minimum.
