Randy Wells cannot catch a break. The kid goes 7 HIT LESS innings and he can’t get a win. Ridiculous. And he got his first major league hit! Congrats kid!
THAT SHOULD GET YOU ONE IN THE WIN CATEGORY. So what happened?
Lou called to the bullpen in the 8th inning. Wells gave up a SOLO home run… solo. He was only at 83 pitches. Sooooooooo you put in Carlos Marmol. Who then (with one guy already on first) walked a guy, gets a guy to line out, than hits a guy… yup bases loaded with 1 out. Then what happens? He walks ANOTHER guy to bring in a run. Than a sac fly to score another. Next thing you know, it’s 5 to 3.
All the while Randy is sitting in the dugout watching his first big league W go down the drain.
Then our wonderful closer is brought in to finish the game. Did I ever mention how much I dislike Kevin Gregg??
I’m watching the bottom of the ninth unfold nicely. The first guy flies out. The second guy should have struck out but it was a wild pitch so he’s on first. Okay, no big deal. Oh wait… this is Kevin Gregg we’re talking about. Next guy flies out. SWEET. 2 outs! WRONG. Next guy comes up and homers… yeah, homers. With one guy already on that ties the game at 5.
I dislike Kevin Gregg.
We need a serious make over in the bullpen. Jim Hendry best be out there lookin’. Or else…
Needless to say we lost in the 12th inning.
I found this hilarious picture on http://www.cubby-blue.com.
Zambrano is suspended 6 games for his little burst on the field and then he misses the flight to Atlanta? Come on Zambrano. Get your act together. He’s probably going to be fined and he’ll have to apologize to the team.
And all these injuries. Really guys?! I’m starting to think your faking it. Miles, Freel, Harden, Ramirez, Bradley… come on now.
And for a minute there I was scared that I might have to see Mark DeRosa in a Cardinals uniform. PHEW, I don’t think that will be happening. Or at least I hope not. I’m still mad we traded him. It was a terrible decision. I’m going to the Sox & Cleveland game with my best friend on friday. She’s a sox fan. I just want to see DeRo.
In other news:
I made the mistake of watching I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here yesterday. I thought Dog the Bounty Hunter was supposed to be on it but I guess I was wrong. And Spencer and Heidi Pratt need to be eaten by a dragon in the jungle.
I had the game on my kitchen tv while I watched Men Vs. Wild with Will Ferrell. It was hilarious.
And with that I draw this entry to a close. Good night &
Unfortunatly I didn’t get to watch the game today. It was my little sister’s birthday so we went to chuck e cheese. But believe me, I had the phone on gameday.
That’s my sister! ❤
So Wells pitched great! Second outing and the guys just can’t get him a W. He went 6 innings with 4 hits and 4 strikeouts. What’s a guy gatta do?! I think we should keep him in the rotation when Z gets back. Marshall will be nice in the bullpen.
Kevin Gregg.. PSH. I can’t stand this guy. I really can’t. I don’t know if other Cubs fans feel the same but blow a four run lead in the ninth? No, that’s not what a closer is supposed to do. Then they put in Heilman who is not perfect and has no room for error inheriting bases loaded with no outs. I almost questioned my faith… almost.
And just after I commenting on Jane’s blog about the beauty of a walkoff.. we have one. Our offense didn’t cross the plate until the sixth but Fons got the job done with Scales on and a single to right field.
CSN’s poll question today was “Who do you want to be the Cubs everyday third baseman with Aramis out?” And my answer is Bobby Scales. I like this guy. I think he’s good offensivly and he gets the job done. Thumbs up to Bobby Scales.
That was a quickie 😉 but I have to go sing ‘Happy Birthday’ and get my ankle checked out. There is some suspicious brusing and swelling that I def didn’t notice until last night when my ankle was screaming in pain.
