Was it nonsense with Beck, too? How about Borowski? Did you think his 2003 ERA+ of 161 was going to carry over to next season? He struggled to get outs as well. Use your eyes. It's not hard to pick out a pitcher who has trouble. Not hard to pick out the ones who are due for disaster. Use your eyes?...

cliff floyd is better than matt murton. this isnt a new development It wouldn't have been a new development 3 years ago. But it would be today. no, not it's not. Okay, we'll just pretend like Floyd isn't a hobbled old man playing on his last legs coming off a terrible season in which he couldn't ho...

Howry's been iffy since the day he arrived here. Definitely not as advertised. Howry was great last year and he may wind up being so this year but the early returns are bad. Yeah, he was great last year, far from iffy. But that's the problem when you sign aging middle relievers to longterm deals. T...

I meant he gave up runs... I know they never lead. This game should still be tied. If that isn't the fault of the bullpen (specifically Howry) then I don't know what is.... The starter pitched to a 4.50 ERA. The lineup had an OBP of about .270 and scored 3 measly runs. Yes, Howry had a bad outing a...

It's also pretty crazy to be a Cubs fan, but we still do it.

I'm not ready to call the bullpen bad just yet. It's still early..I think our bullpen will be fine. I agree, it's just frustrating. This could be the second loss directly attributed to bad bullpen pitching. The Cubs never had a lead in this game. You can't attribute a loss to the bullpen directly i...

So it seems as though Wuertz, Cotts and Dempster are the only reliable relievers so far this year.

nature of the beast I guess. Better sign 'em all longterm.

there's something screwy with my normal login (goony), so Tim had me create a new one. I was sick of that goofy name anyway.

using pinch hitters to sac bunt is stupid. what a waste of a plate appearance. Theriot was already in the game, he came in with Wuertz. And welcome! that's what I get for talking to a client during the game. Yippee for tie games. oh, thanks for the welcome but I've been around a long time
