And finally out of the inning. Hope the rest of the game goes a bit smoother for Shark.

Damn wind.....

Sadly, it wasn't really a "wild" pitch. It was in the batter box area still......

Something wrong with Phillips back. He looked really awkward on that first swing.

Shark looking sharp!

Hamilton has looked terrible all season, which is fine by me.

That was an awful swing by Hamilton. I'll take it!

Demand. There is no asking. All of the players we would potentially send to Anaheim have way more value/potential then anyone on their team.

Valbuena has some value as a left-handed bat off the bench (sneaky power, can draw walks, plays adequate defense). But.....

Nice start to the inning from Olt.

Another underwhelming performance from Jackson.
Commented on Overflow Thread 3: Cubs vs. Cardinals, Sunday 4/13, 1:15 CT on Apr 13 2014, 5:03p
It depends on how long the rain delay is. There's hope that he won't be back on the mound for this game.
Commented on Overflow Thread 1: Cubs vs. Cardinals, Sunday 4/13, 1:15 CT on Apr 13 2014, 3:26p
Let's have a poll on how many pitches Jackson throws this inning:

I figured that's what you were getting at. But I would still pass on that deal. And the Angels wouldn't pull the trigger on that if I were to bet money on it.
Commented on First Pitch Thread: Cubs vs. Cardinals, Sunday 4/13, 1:15 CT on Apr 13 2014, 3:18p
I wouldn't want to do that deal either.
Commented on First Pitch Thread: Cubs vs. Cardinals, Sunday 4/13, 1:15 CT on Apr 13 2014, 3:16p
That has a possibility of happening. I would rather have Arrieta and Rusin in the rotation instead of Jackson.
Commented on First Pitch Thread: Cubs vs. Cardinals, Sunday 4/13, 1:15 CT on Apr 13 2014, 3:16p
And that's a "good" Jackson outing if we're only down by one run.
Commented on First Pitch Thread: Cubs vs. Cardinals, Sunday 4/13, 1:15 CT on Apr 13 2014, 3:12p
That very well could happen today.
Commented on First Pitch Thread: Cubs vs. Cardinals, Sunday 4/13, 1:15 CT on Apr 13 2014, 3:11p
Iowa definitely won't be happening for Jackson.

I don't think the Cubs will release him. IF they decide to no longer keep him in the organization then I bet he gets swapped for another bad contract.

The Cubs may want to consider sending Jackson to the pen for a few weeks.

With our luck he would turn things around and return to his career norms if we did that.

The Cubs have enough arms to put together some type of respectable bullpen, as long as everyone performs as expected.

That pitch for the strikeout was nasty.

I meant that that pitch hit the bat and not Bourjos.

Agreed. But I like our odds better now that Veras has already been used.

Never said we had a controversy. Veras just has to go to mop-up duty.
Commented on Overflow Thread 3: Cubs vs. Cardinals, Friday 4/11, 7:15 CT on Apr 11 2014, 11:55p
Who else would you go with? It's seeing how he handles the pressure of being the go to guy in the ninth. Consider it a promotion if you will. And those are good last time I checked.

It's Veras' veteran work ethic rubbing off on him......
Commented on Overflow Thread 3: Cubs vs. Cardinals, Friday 4/11, 7:15 CT on Apr 11 2014, 11:54p
And I'm pretty sure he's making double what Veras is earning this season.

Strop has been more consistent compared to Veras though. And he has the "stuff" to be a closer for a few months at least.

If he can't get the job done then he needs to be removed from that role. Easier said then done.
