    Give the Cubs scouts credit. They told Harden and Lilly that this team could not hit off speed and breaking balls, so give them a steady diet of them. I also imagine the scounting report mentioned the fact that our hitters will swing at anything.

    Cubs Scouting Report on Reds:

    Liable to swing at hotdog wrappers that float past the plate, throw lots of junk.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Gotta be agressive at the plate. Hank said so.

    DeRosa hit a 177 hopper up the middle and Keppinger was no where to be found.

    What are the odds that the first nine are retired on less than 30 pitches?
