Cubs win in extras

Good to see the Cubs pull this one off. Lilly turned in another solid performance, he is really showing that he is the most consistent starter on this team. The bullpen hung on in extras to secure the win, and Gregg didnt look half bad. Another side note Derek Lee (my favorite player) went 2-3 with a walk to raise his average to .262. He has started to pick it up recently but you had to believe he would he has been a very consistent player over his career. See ya tommorow.

Kevin "Heart Attack" Gregg

Well Randy lost another win this time it wasnt due to the offense but our god awful bullpen. Kevin Gregg throws a wild pitch strikeout to get a man on first then gives up a homerun to Jeff Francouer. Every time that man gets out on the mound i about die, he needs at least a 5 run lead to hold a game. This is proving to have been one of the worst offseasons for the Cubs in recent years. Had Mark DeRosa stayed he would have been able to provide a solid run producer at third filling in for Ramirez, Wood i think is still better than Gregg even though he has had his struggles this year. Milton Bradley has been almost completley worthless, and so has Aaron Heilman. I had been sceptical before but now after watching the season pan out i have learned a less, never mess with a good thing. Just because the Cubs flopped in the playoffs did not meen they needed to be retooled, the managment has made some huge mistakes this year and now they need to make some trades to solidify the Bullpen and i dont want Bradley, Gregg, or Heilman on this team any more since all they do is damage it. And right now i feel the worst for Randy Wells he looked fantastic today and yeat again he is robbed.

Lets give Randy some runs

Well tonight the Cubs kick off a three game series in Atlanta against the Braves. The Braves put Kenshin Kawakami on the mound to face Randy Wells for the Cubs. Wells has pitched very well in four starts but has failed to get any run support and thus has not won a game. Hopefully he can get that first Major League win tonight and the Cubs can score some runs. I may post about the game later.
