    Maybe Francisco could play 3B for the cubs -would fit right in.

    I can't believe they scored that a triple! That was an error for sure.

    Hit another one out Joey!!

    We'll agree to disagree.
    So why are you arguing when I'm suggesting that they save Wood today to leave more in the tank for October?

    Makes no sense really.

    Official scorers proving yet again that errors and fielding percentage are as garbage a stat as it gets.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    He could have gone more today, pitchwise. If he escapes that jam there, he could go 8 or 9 and save the pen for the biggest series in the last 10 years. Its not like you're overusing him, pitchers should expect to go at least 100 pitches every game, or they're not getting the job done, unless they throw a complete game before they reach that.
