"Lou is not talking about mechanics when he goes out to the mound,"

Oh Yeah!

Do I even have to say anything besides Derrek Lee, pitch-hit, grand slam home run?

I didn't think so.

OK, how about Jason Marquis with a two-run shot, Ryan Theriot and Aramis Ramirez with triples, Daryle Ward with another double, Michael Barrett with his second homer in as many days, and the Chicago Cubs win the home series against the Chicago White Sox by winning the first two games in Wrigley. Nice. If Big Z can win game 3 tomorrow afternoon, it's back to .500 for the Cubbies.

Damn, I hope I'm not talking about frickin' .500 for very much longer this season. Unless it's D Lee's BA or Theriot's OBP. Or how many beers are sold in the rightfield bleachers by the middle of the second inning.

Hey, Howry and Eyre, can you fucks stop giving up so many runs this year for a change? Seriously. Try keeping people off base for a change. Not like you are two of the highest paid Cubs or anything...

And speaking of highly paid Cubs, Soriano, what's with the 4 for the last 29? 0 HR and 1 RBI in that stretch as well, "hitting" in the 3 slot. Maybe he needs to breathe through his eyeballs or something.

I was just talking with my buddy, and fellow Cub fan, Joe on Thursday about how the Cubs need to send Angel Guzman back to the pen, and bring up Sean Marshall to start games. Ya know, someone that can last longer than 75-80 pitches. And, I also said it'd be nice to have Carlos Marmol up in the pen and send some of the non-performers off to Iowa to think about things. And guess what Sweet Lou does?

MAN, it's nice to have a real baseball man in the dugout for a change.

Go Cubs!
