0-1 Cubs lead.

Soriano made a bonehead play and got away with it. Nady barely missed catching a ball that Soriano didn't tag on, and it would've been a sure double play to end the inning. Soriano was halfway down the third base line when the ball would've been caught.

Aramis Ramirez just took a kind of cheap slide at Freddy. Freddy was off the bag (to the side of it) and not throwing, but he blatantly slid straight at Freddy anyways.

Zambrono really is good even if he's pitching to a good high school bunch. (No offense Az)

Well it's only 4-0 in the fourth, so we're probably not ready to explode yet.

They only have 10 hits at thhis point. Duke has them right where they want him!

Yeah, that 3rd time around the lineup the Cubs should be tired of swinging those bats...and Duke should be able to groove some by them...

Top of the 5th, 5-zip, and the Cubs already have 10 hits. I think it's fair to say Duke doesn't have his good stuff tonight. Oh, well, maybe I can find a good movie on TV.

Bay triples with no outs. He doesn't score, -- 2 Ks and a ground out. This must be 2007 all over again.

Ground hog Day re-visited!

Just got home to see Bay lead off with a triple. LaRoche was destined to strike out swinging, I expected that. Nady's was disappointing but I guess he's due for a bad game after completely tearing up that Milwaukee series. Doug M, well, at least he made contact.

I didn't expect us to win this game. The Cubs own us (even at home), and Zambrano is on the mound, he's had nasty stuff this year. But their effort tonight is even worse than I imagined. I was hoping Duke could have at least kept us in the game, so much for that. We are due for the late comeback tonight, however much like most of the games we've played at Wrigley, I think it will be too little too late.

Wicked stuff by Burnett tonight! He comes in, gives up a double, single then HR, no outs.

See y'all. Off to do something less masochistic.

I was foolish to think we might possibly sweep this series. What would make me even entertain the notion that the Pittsburgh Pirates could get remotely close to respectability?

I am soooooo disgusted (I would type that in bold letters if I was smart enough to figure out how.. obviously I'm a fricking MORON for following a CRAP team for the last decade and a half!!)

We're gonna get swept.. our season is officially kaput if we lose all three games in this series but we have no chance with this pathetic starting pitching anyway. Here in Cleveland they know how to evaluate pitching.

I may take a week off from the Pirates to clear my head (after watching them on WGN tomorrow.)

I don't know why people are so upset, I completely predicted this. I mean, we're 1-8 against the Cubs this year, and now we're facing their best pitcher. If you don't expect much, the frustration level is slightly easier to deal with. I came home tonight just in time to catch: Bay lead off with a triple followed by 2 K's and a groundout to end the inning. Then Burnett comes in to give up a double, single, then HR before he gets an out. The Pirates = batting practice for the Cubs. If it wasn't for Nate pulling off his late-game HR heroics in that last series, we may have never won a game against them all season. At least we have been semi-competitive against other teams. But these games are a joke. We get buried so bad early that even when we come up with big plays like just now, McLouth with a 2-out triple to drive in 2 runs, we are 5 or 6 runs too short.

Shark, you're a realist! I'm impatient.. I want a winning record this year. Our starting pitching has really disappointed.

There was very little hope they'd be a winning record team...They need more than 5 people in the lineup that can hit, and steady starting pitching...And havent gotten either...plus add the errors this year...We should be lucky they are where they are right now...

I'm not giving up hope, but my bar is set low so I wont be that disappointed, but I am liking what I have seen so far from the front office and management...That's a sign the tides may be turning soon.
