Cubs live game thread: Can we be done already?

I can’t believe we’re not done getting stomped by the Brewers yet. I actually thought today was an off-day. Wishful thinking, I suppose.

Here’s today’s lineup:

Castro
Valbuena
Rizzo
Schierholtz
Sweeney
Castillo
Lake
Watkins
Arrieta

Because God knows batting Luis Valbuena second has really paid off.

First pitch is at 1:10 pm CT on WGN.

    Valbuena is better then Barney.

    1. Doc Blume says:

      Barney can hit lefties…kinda. Valbuena can’t.

      That’s about all I got.

      1. Doc Blume says:

        Valbuena homers! He’s the greatest player ever!!!

    At the very least, we keep hopes of a non-sweep alive!

    I hope Dale is dressed like a pirate today.

      If there’s one thing I have learned from the fans in Baltimore, it’s never trust an Arrieta.

      1. sloanpeterson2 says:

        1 hitter so far for AARGieta…

    Here we go.
    Avoid the SWEEP!
    By the way, I noticed no one mentioned Cashner’s complete game 1-hitter on monday.Faced the minimum 27 batters.

    Cubs Win!
    Cubs Win!
    Cubs Win!

    Really, when I saw this morning that we were 5.5 games behind the Brewers I was pretty effing aggravated.
    Don’t know why I’m so happy.
    Ah well, the life of a Cubfan.

    Just finished watching the highlights.
    The Cubbies were swinging the lumber today.
    (Chuckle)That sounds funny to say that about the Cubs.

  10. Doc Blume says:

    There Julie…Cubs didn’t get swept. I hope you are happy. And now we can kiss that #3 draft pick goodbye. :(

    For anyone who believes there are doubts as to whether Sandberg will remain in Philly after the season…http://www.csnphilly.com/baseball-philadelphia-phillies/no-win-sandberg-his-prize-coming

    He’s not going anywhere.
