HENDRY, PINIELLA FORM SOLID ROSTER

7

I’m very happy how the Cubs playoff roster for the NLDS is set.

No Ohman, Trachsel or Monroe. I would prefer to have Marshall on the roster over Eyre, but seeing as Marshall started the majority of the season it makes some sense. Could have also chosen Marshall over Marquis but Arizona doesn’t have anyone that scares me from the left side of the plate.

Brandon Webb doesn’t allow homers and has the ability to shut-out the Cubs. The Cubs have had real hot bats though. Then you have soft-tosser Doug Davis in game 2. He walks a lot of hitters–but will the Cubs let him?  Ah, enough of this. Play ball!

    I like their chances more and more. I think tonight’s game will show the Cubs not pushing many across until the later innings. They need to be patient against Webb and break out the big hits from the sixth on. I think the Backs’ bullpen is full of holes. And you’re right, there are too many softballers after Webb in their rotation to make a difference.
    Cubs in 3.

    Like Mike, I really like the Cubs’ chances in the first round. After that, it’s anyone’s guess.

    Why do you hate?

    He’s a Cards fan. And a Rams fan. Give him a break.

    How is it hating when you laugh at a Cubs fan who predicts his team to sweep in the playoffs?????

  • http://thewaywardbus.wordpress.com Mike O’Donnell

    Because it’s his team. If my wife is an idiot in public I don’t say “My wife’s an idiot” I say “I love my wife and I believe in who she is. Thank God that He loves us in our imperfections because certainly I am a bigger idiot than my wife will ever be.”
    I don’t dismiss the Cubs chances when they have a chance to win. I have nothing to lose in predicting them to win in three. There is a thing called loyalty.

    And please accept my deepest sympathy for your tragic news, dhaab.
