I'm excited. This is my first tv game this season. Glad to get to watch Volquez.

I understand that BP needed a rest -- but do you really want to bench your best hitter versus lefties? I don't get it.

Interesting. No Phillips. Hope the wind is blowing in today.

Got the TV fired up in the office on WGN.

Phillips is 0-for-13 against Lilly, still I think I want him in there.

Game is on WGN. One of the few games I can watch this season. Looking forward to seeing Volquez. I hope he doesn't disappoint. Dusty said Phillips needed a day off. He thought he was swinging at too many pitches. I'll take any kind of win today,10-9 or 1-0,just win baby!

Phillips is 0-for-13 against Lilly, still I think I want him in there.

Freel was lifetime 0 for 7 against Lilly, so I think that is a moot point...

lefties back to back two times in the line up vs. a lefty. Wow! It worked. Phillips needed a day off. Nice to get this win.
