Derek Lee hits a run in. Micah hits a home run and a funky infield single makes it 4 – 0 going into the top of the ninth for the Cubs. But, it’s amazing how little time it takes to take a way a win from a pitcher who’s pitched two really good games, only to have the bull pen F*CK it up in the final inning or so.
Yeah, Kevin Gregg. You are a waste of talent that we traded away for because of Kerry Wood wasn’t resigned. They have to sit your *** because of your knee. They didn’t sign WOODY because they didn’t want a long deal. (Bet you’re re-thinking that decision—as I am by the way–Mr. Hendry.)
Lou didn’t managed this game for ****. The minute Gregg gave up the home run, you should have had someone tossing in the bullpen. That way if he gave up another hit or a home run you could have yanked Gregg’s butt and throw him into the dugout. And after that third hit, I definitely would have yanked him by the shirt collar.
Heilman came out and did what he had to do to keep it from going completely out of control. And if it wasn’t for a bad throw…
Well.. just be thankful that’s still only a 1/2 game and not a game like it could have been.
Carlos Zambrano finally broke is his opening day winless streak when the Cubs beat the Houston Astros Monday night 4-2. Zambrano went six plus innings, giving up one run on five hits and striking out six.
Milton Bradley, Kosuke Fukodome and Derek Lee went 0-for-4. Alfonso Soriano connected lead-off home run number 50. Aramis Ramirez also hit a solo shot. One of the not-so-big surprises was Mike Fontenot who went 3 for 4 and scoring twice.
New closer Kevin Gregg got the save after giving up a run in the bottom of the nineth.
