Man, this Clevenger guy, it's good to have him back.
   3. SteveM. Posted: May 30, 2012 at 03:49 PM (#4143262)
I had been advocating making him the starter before his injury. I was flabbergasted when I looked the teams records when I open this thread and saw the Padres are now then the Cubs. I didn't think that was possible.
   4. Brian C Posted: May 30, 2012 at 03:51 PM (#4143264)
The team records at the top of this page are wrong - they don't include yesterday's game. I guess the Primer Chimp is hung over again.

In 30 career PAs, Clevenger now has 3 more WAR than Koyie Hill does in >1000 PAs.
   6. Brian C Posted: May 30, 2012 at 03:52 PM (#4143266)
Geez, Dempster's awful today.
   7. Brian C Posted: May 30, 2012 at 03:54 PM (#4143271)
In 30 career PAs, Clevenger now has 3 more WAR than Koyie Hill does in >1000 PAs.

Yeah, but both of us have 2 WAR over him, and we have 0 PA.

Hey, Castro just took a walk. Too bad Wrigley doesn't have fireworks to shoot off.
   9. SteveM. Posted: May 30, 2012 at 04:05 PM (#4143288)
Castro took a walk! I thought deserved an exclamation point.
   10. Brian C Posted: May 30, 2012 at 04:15 PM (#4143300)
I wonder how long they're sticking with Bass.

Oh wait, there he goes.
   11. SteveM. Posted: May 30, 2012 at 04:17 PM (#4143302)
Castro and Soriano walk in the same inning. We should check the Mayan Calendar if this rare phenomenon was predicted.
   12. Brian C Posted: May 30, 2012 at 04:19 PM (#4143310)
It's at least the second time it's happened this year, actually. They did it back-to-back in the 8th inning of this game.
   13. SteveM. Posted: May 30, 2012 at 04:22 PM (#4143316)
Did Bud Black really need to bring in a lefty in the 5th inning? He is going to burn through that bullpen today.
   14. Brian C Posted: May 30, 2012 at 04:25 PM (#4143321)
You know, Barney doesn't take a ton of walks, either. This has been quite the inning.

Sucks to leave the bases loaded, but at least they're back in this game.
   15. SteveM. Posted: May 30, 2012 at 04:34 PM (#4143333)
The Cubs will miss Padres pitching-it cures what ails you.
   16. SteveM. Posted: May 30, 2012 at 04:50 PM (#4143355)
This is the Carlos Marmol we all know and loath.
   17. Brian C Posted: May 30, 2012 at 04:57 PM (#4143362)
Ha ha, the Marmol that puts a couple guys on base and then gets out of it is actually the good Marmol.
   18. SteveM. Posted: May 30, 2012 at 05:04 PM (#4143368)
I love that Len knows what a LOOGY is.
   19. SteveM. Posted: May 30, 2012 at 05:28 PM (#4143381)
That run was due to pure speed.
   20. Brian C Posted: May 30, 2012 at 05:31 PM (#4143384)
Yeah, that was fun. If Campana and Castro could get on base more often they'd be a hell of a 1-2 punch at the top of a batting order.
   21. Brian C Posted: May 30, 2012 at 05:35 PM (#4143386)
Nice double play - all three guys did made a good play on that one.
   22. Brian C Posted: May 30, 2012 at 05:52 PM (#4143392)
Holy freaking cow! Darwin Barney!
   23. SteveM. Posted: May 30, 2012 at 05:52 PM (#4143393)
That might be the most unlikely scenario for a Cub win. A Darwin Barney homerun with the wind blowing in.
   24. Brian C Posted: May 30, 2012 at 05:53 PM (#4143394)
Even Barney looks shocked! Although even if it had fallen in the run probably scores, since it was in the gap.
   25. SteveM. Posted: May 30, 2012 at 05:57 PM (#4143398)
Great game. It almost made me forget it was between the two worst teams in baseball.
