    oh I spoke too soon. Dangit.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    How does Theriot do a complete 360 and still get Hairston at 1B on the DP? Was Hairston crawling?

    The pitchers must have had a meeting about the offense.

    Resigning Hairston is looking like a bad move, along with signing Lincoln to a two year deal.

    Two on, one out and they fail to score. To make it worse, Cueto had to run the bases.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    It's April. Any judgments are wildly premature.

    Hairston was doubled up because it appeared he didn't hustle up the line.

    Hairston was definitely not running all out on that play.

    Jerry Phillips Jr.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Normally I wouldn't make a big deal out of Hairston's struggles because of the small sample size, but last year was the first time he's ever hit in his big league career.

    No kidding. Don't rush it or anything.

    At least he didn't have to don a warm-up jacket. Who was it that used to do that recently, was it Kerry Wood? I think so. Dude used to put on a warm-up jacket to jog from first back to the dugout in June.

    I'm not here just to bash the Cubs, I swear.

    Miles and Lilly both ground out to 2nd. 2outs.

    Yeah, I couldn't believe he got doubled up on that. Did he stumble out of the box or something?

    Soriano singles into the hole between short and 3rd.

    28 runs on the road trip through last night's game, 13 of those in the first two games of the trip. To call their 5-3 record wildly improbable to this point, in light of that, is an understatement.

    Darnell McDonald should get the next start in LF against a left-hander if that is all the harder JHJ wants to run. This team cannot afford anything less than maximum effort while at the dish.
