Speculation on the radio last night was that Barry would return no earlier than tomorrow. So I don't expect to see him tonight.

Let's see if Murton merits the bench for throwing to the wrong base last night.

Undoubtedly. Even if it was par for the Moises Alou course.

As someone who rather watch The OC season 3 premire then a meaningless game I can't really comment but.... After watching the Sammy/Moises show in the corners for years (thyough they made up for it with their bats) Throwing to wrong base seems like a decent play .... Matty didn't air mail a cut off guy and allow 2 extra bases did he....

No Giantandre, the consequences weren't that bad, really. But, it did send Zambrano on a mini meltdown where the coaching staff had to come out and console him. He later apologized.

well murton is young and prone to make mistakes but at least he didnt decide to throw it home, buyt after the runner had already scored, he was at least thinking that he could hold a runner from advancing.

After two outstanding performances by Pinto and Nolasco, Carlos Marmol and West Tenn go for the sweep in the Northern Division Championship Series for the Southern League. Just starting now. Winner of this series plays winner of Jacksonville/Birmingham next week. Although it's not at all a cohesive group, I think this "class" of Cubs minor leaguers is going for its third -- and maybe its fourth -- consecutive league title, having won at Lansing in 2003, Daytona in 2004, and possibly at Boise in 2002.

2-0 on a Brandon Sing HR. Now bottom of 2nd.

Well that can't be. Dusty said it was a young mistake.

Of course, they are going to remain cohesive when they are all stuck at Iowa for the next 3 seasons.

Now 8-0 through two innings on, among other things, a Brandon Sing grand slam. I'm pretty sure the Diamond Jaxx could beat the Cubs at this point.

I see things like this and I get all excited about the Nolascos and Pintos and Sings and Pattersons who are with that team.

And then I remember that I won't be seeing any of them in any real capacity until probably 2009, assuming Dusty gets only a 2-year extension, at which point they'll all be three years older and the kind of 25-26 year old rookie that has very little chance of ever becoming an impact player at the major leagues.

And then I'm sad all over again.
   12. Hendry's Wad of Cash (UCCF) Posted: September 10, 2005 at 01:32 AM (#1609149)
Murton and Cedeno, down:

Hairston
His Neifiness
Lee
Burnitz
Nomar
Walker
Barrett
Patterson
Williams

Yuck. To those who are about to suffer through listening to this game, I salute you.

I’m pretty sure the Diamond Jaxx could beat the Cubs at this point.

I'm pretty sure who I'd be rooting for, too.

I see it's the 'righty' line-up tonight. And, again, that clown Neifi bats 2nd. Dusty should be catching #### for that, alone, on a daily basis.

What I dislike most about Pixie and Dixie is that they're switch-hitters. Impossible to keep out of the game; impossible to get out of the game.
   14. Neil M Posted: September 10, 2005 at 01:52 AM (#1609279)
Also, while I'm pissed off about things, not for the first time Dusty is letting the tail wag the dog. Since when did that narcissistic hot-dog Jerry Hairston become indispensible?
   15. Tom was totally clowned by CW Posted: September 10, 2005 at 03:34 AM (#1609687)
I truly appreciate Dusty's line-up...but Cain is still dealing...would be nice to score some runs to back him though.
   16. The Answer to the TWolves (GMoney) Posted: September 10, 2005 at 03:46 AM (#1609739)
So apparently this Cain kid can pitch?
   17. Tom was totally clowned by CW Posted: September 10, 2005 at 03:51 AM (#1609756)
yeah...he is hitting 97 on the gun...has a jaw dropping curve he is getting over for strikes...and basically he is really locked in tonight...21 balls(53 strikes) through 21 batters.
   18. The Answer to the TWolves (GMoney) Posted: September 10, 2005 at 04:00 AM (#1609771)

   19. Sweet Posted: September 10, 2005 at 04:00 AM (#1609772)
This one is over unless Lee can hit two more solo shots. Hairston/Perez is no better than Patterson/Perez at the top of the order.
   20. Tom was totally clowned by CW Posted: September 10, 2005 at 04:01 AM (#1609775)
you ever notice that pitchers that come up young haven't learned that they aren't supposed to hit?
   21. Tom was totally clowned by CW Posted: September 10, 2005 at 04:08 AM (#1609782)
the question of the moment is how many pitches they let cain throw. he's at 90 through 7, and has zero complete games in his professional career.

Cain so far this season... 3g 19ip 7h 6bb 14k 4er 2 hr.
   22. The Answer to the TWolves (GMoney) Posted: September 10, 2005 at 04:11 AM (#1609786)
Yeah send Macias up there, you rock Dusty!
   23. Tom was totally clowned by CW Posted: September 10, 2005 at 04:16 AM (#1609789)
and i am guessing he gets the complete game...apparently the giant have not had a pitcher pick up a ball in the bullpen all night.
   24. The Answer to the TWolves (GMoney) Posted: September 10, 2005 at 04:23 AM (#1609792)
Game Over ..congrats Matt Cain on your 1st complete game in the majors. Now please don't do that again so you can stay healthy for next year for my roto team :)
   25. Tom was totally clowned by CW Posted: September 10, 2005 at 04:23 AM (#1609793)
The kid is pretty good....
   26. Tom was totally clowned by CW Posted: September 10, 2005 at 04:24 AM (#1609795)
107 pitches is no big deal...
   27. Hendry's Wad of Cash (UCCF) Posted: September 10, 2005 at 04:25 AM (#1609796)
That 9th inning was such a perfect snapshot of the Cubs season.

Tying run on, none out, 9th inning, one run game...

Next three guys swing at the first pitch and make outs. How could you *not* take a pitch from a 20-year-old kid pitching into the 9th inning in the majors for the first time in his career?

Just pathetic. Neifi and Burnitz I expected it, but Lee? Even God has his off days.

Useless fun facts:

Post-All-Star Break Stats
Derrek Lee .289/.379/.572
Geoff Jenkins .356/.417/.667

I meant to point to this earlier, but there is a great evisceration of my arch-nemesis Jose Macias in Friday's BPro. It's free and can be accessed here.
