He is looking good. Rizzo has 3 RBIs over the weekend and is looking for more hopefully.

He's got the goods today despite the Ump screwing him on some close calls.

He is pitching like a guy who really wants to get that big contract with the Cubs and be a main piece for the long term.

He has 9 Ks and we're not even out of the fourth.  Make that 10 Ks after four.

Samardzija= ACE, yeah it's early but I don't care I'm sold on him.

Hope the Cubs don't waste another good start. Just need a couple more runs.

He clearly was losing his stuff in this half of the inning and yet Sveum still kept him in now the chances of winning this game are gone.

If he is an "Ace" like you just claim him to be, then he needs to be able to pitch out of jams while losing "his stuff".

It's a 162 game season and Sveum has to manage like it is one.

I just wish this team was enjoyable for a few months. It is agony trying to follow this team.

It also seems like the Cubs, offensively and on the mound, are just mental cases and piss down their leg. It has been this way with this organization as far as I can remember. I was hoping that would change with the new management/coaches/culture, but it is the same crap.

We all know the talent is limited now on the ML club, but you can't keep having teams that are irrelevant by tax day. The apathy that is growing in your base should be a concern and they should be disappointed that they aren't at least interesting. It's fine to not expect consistent success for a few years while they get their kids ready, but in the meantime you would hope they could be better than a 65 win team. At least give us something to watch until Memorial Day for crying out loud.

Re: Game 6 (Samardzija) 


The trend I'm noticing with the 2013 Cubs is they're scoring only 1-2 runs/game so far.  No baseball team is gonna win a lotta games by averaging 1-2 runs/game.  Unless the Cub offense starts improving soon, 2013 looks like it will be another 100-loss season.

The one game where the Cubs DID score a lotta runs, the bullpen blew the lead away.  I'll give em the benefit of the doubt.  Since the season is only a week old.  And the Cubs start playing at home tomorrow (where they will likely win more games at in general).

That's nice, but does the early game cut into Bosio's nap time?

I don't think being horrible from the jump was the plan. Theo was clear in stating that if they aren't in a race in July they are going to flip players and probably be terrible in August/Sept. He really made no secret in that. But they do not want them to be as stupid/bad as they seem they will more than likely be from the start. Again, you can't think he wants apathy to set in for multiple ENTIRE baseball seasons, that is not good for business.

Also, don't kid yourself that he doesn't think some of these minor moves to add on is not a hope he can find some diamonds in the rough to show how brilliant he is. He would love to all of a sudden have an unexpected contender to show the fans, and the baseball world, how his selecting of talent in all ways is far superior.

+1.  New management and coaches but culture's the same.

Exactly.  What were they thinking when they put that plan in place 105 years ago.
