CUBS ROOKIE THROWS A GEM

5

During the 18 inning game with the Astros the other night, Dusty Baker used all 25 players on his bench, including the next day’s starter, Rich Hill. Baker was scolded for by umpires for wanting to put Neifi Perez in the game a second time. That’s a joke.

But the Cubs needed someone to come up and pitch in yesterday’s game so they called up an unheralded AAA lefty named Ryan O’Malley.

The rest of the story from Chicago Sports right here. Great baseball story.

    Leyland buys extra carton of smokes for each remaining in the season.

    A good point from the Detroit Free Press:

    The runaway part of the dream is gone for now. The White Sox have moved within 5 1/2 games of the Tigers. Before you say “only 5 1/2 games,” consider this: The Tigers also had a 5 1/2-game lead the last time these two teams concluded a series. At that time, it was a season-high 5 1/2-game lead.

    That was more than three weeks ago. Since then, the Tigers have taken a whole bunch of games off the schedule without the White Sox gaining any ground on them.

    All we need to do is sweep the Red Sox, and the Royals sweep the…yeah…riiiiiiiiight!

    Mike North compared the Tigers to the 1969 Cubs in that they really only play 8 regulars. I haven’t looked into that much, but they will surely go down as the new 1969 Cubs if they do not make the postseason.

    I hope the Tigers don’t choke. Leave Ron Santo to suffer alone!

    And a great comment about Patek. He was my favorite non-Cub growing up.
