The 1st game is on WGM today (day game) Suppan vs. Wells with the wind blowing out. It could be a slugfest!

Magdal

Colvin goes yard in the 1st Cubs AB...1-0.

Still 1-0 Cubs in the top of the fourth two outs, nobody on.

Magdal

So much for a slugfest! Another yawner so far.

So much for a slugfest! Another yawner so far.

It can stay a boring 1-0 all game as far as I'm concerned.

Magdal
07-23-2010, 03:20 PM
LOL! I spoke too soon! Soto!

texasdave

Okay, it can stay a boring 2-0 all game long. I cannot believe I am pulling for the Cubs.

They are thinking nothing else now exept sweeping this series. And it IS doable.

texasdave

Cardinals with a mini-threat in the top of the fifth. Lopez strikes out with a man on second to end it. 2 zip Cubbies.

texasdave
07-23-2010, 03:47 PM
Soriano with a two-run shot. 4 nothing Northsiders.

Wow so the mighty Card lineup has now gone what like 16 innings without scoring a run....

Magdal

The Cardinal infield is about the worst I have ever seen. Ditto clutch hitting. Ditto fundamentals. Pujols could not beat that fumbled grounder out? Was he walking to 1st?

Then Holliday Ks and the ball rolls to the on deck circle and he takes NO NOTE of it!:eek:

Magdal
07-23-2010, 04:15 PM
Well, it's 5 zip on another pitiful play. I think it's safe to say that the Cubs have 1/3 of their sweep well in hand.

Sat. game 2...Hawksworth is as bad as Suppan. I look for the Cubbies to win this game easy. Tex, take over this thread as I was out all nite and will be lucky to wake up by the 7th inning. 12:05 start time! Why so early?

Starlin Castro just hit a 3-run homer. Cubs 3, Cardinals 2 in the 3rd inning of game two in Chicago.

6-3 Cubs in the top of the 6th, but St. Louis has the bases loaded with two outs.

Greene pops up. Still 6-3 Cubs going to bottom 6th.

Magdal

I see the Cubs are trying to give it away...dbl play grounder blown to hell.

Magdal
07-24-2010, 03:50 PM
6-5 Cubs to the 9th....can these bums hold on?

Magdal

I love the Cubs.

But only when they're beating the Cardinals.

Magdal
07-25-2010, 08:02 PM
Game 3: Cubbies going for their 1st sweep vs. Cards in 4 years. Huge difference between 2-1 and 3-0. They have a shot as the Cards are as bad as the Reds on Sundays. The Northsiders want this game as bad as any in the last 2 years.

On the Cards side, they sat Rasmus who has stunk of late in favor of Ludwick. Carpenter has been erratic in his last 5 starts...good, bad and then good again. I don't know if Dempster or Dumpster will take the mound for the Cubs.

Should be a good game! It's on ESPN.

Magdal
07-25-2010, 08:44 PM
2-0 Cards due to bad Cub play.

Wow Carpenter is such a baby.

Magdal

Albert touches dempster to tie the game.

Magdal
07-25-2010, 09:48 PM
If Pujols makes an out there he would have dipped below .300 for the 1st time after the ASG since 2002. I guess he was aware of that.

Redlegs_87
07-25-2010, 09:49 PM
Nice play at the plate.

Magdal
07-25-2010, 09:50 PM
WOW!!! I thought this was gonna be a good game! Carpenter will really be P.O.ed now!

GIDP
07-25-2010, 09:54 PM
He's just a bulldog.

Redlegs_87
07-25-2010, 09:57 PM
Damn you Soto

Magdal
07-25-2010, 09:58 PM
I have a feeling that this game is gonna go down to the wire.

Magdal
07-25-2010, 10:05 PM
That makes 3 men lost on the bases for the Cards...simply the worse BR team around....

sabometrics

I thought that was leaving the premises. Phew.

Magdal

Marshall throwing darts that inning.

GIDP
07-25-2010, 11:10 PM
Cardinals got 3 hits in the 10th. Bases loaded with 1 out, and Molina hits into a DP.

Cubs now lead off their half of the 10 with a single.

Magdal
07-25-2010, 11:11 PM
Cubs while end it in this inning.

Magdal
07-25-2010, 11:13 PM
???????????????

GIDP
07-25-2010, 11:16 PM
Colvin just stole 2nd base.

Man on 2nd 1 out.

GIDP
07-25-2010, 11:18 PM
Now Castro is hit by the pitch. 1st and 2nd for the cubs 1 out.

Do you try to double steal?

Magdal
07-25-2010, 11:20 PM
No way does Lou do that

GIDP
07-25-2010, 11:21 PM
Yea I doubt he would ever do it.

sabometrics
07-25-2010, 11:43 PM
Soto doing everything he can to be part of every possible DP. Luckily FeLo won't let that happen.

sabometrics
07-25-2010, 11:43 PM
Bullpen look-in confirms Dennys Reyes is indeed still quite portly.

sabometrics
07-25-2010, 11:45 PM
Nooooooo way that was inside!

sabometrics
07-25-2010, 11:45 PM
Hahaha that was a better pitch and he calls it a ball. Valentine comments that he got the count right in the end :D

sabometrics
07-25-2010, 11:47 PM
Reyes waddling in to get the save. Fukudome will be his opponent.

Cards escape by the hair on their bullpen's chinny chin chins.
