Way to Go - Sergio!

Tuesday, June 14, 2005

So, I'm intermittently checking the gamecast every 10 minutes... and each time I check it, the Cubs have tacked on a few more runs.

It is currently 14-0 heading into the top of the ninth, and I'm going to predict a Cubs win! Woo!.

Well, since the Cubs are winning and its difficult to moan and groan about things when you've up by two touchdowns, I wanted to point you towards a few things.

First, I've been updating and adding some entries to the Cubs Calendar, and while doing so noticed that the Cubs will be 'celebrating' the 41st anniversary of the Lou Brock trade tomorrow.

Also of note, Beyond the Boxscore has an interesting article discussing Derrek Lee's chances of winning a triple crown. Check it out.

Sergio Mitre is the man! The game is over and Mitre has completed the game allowing no runs, five hits, no walks, and striking out three. Methinks Mitre sees Kerry Wood and Mark Prior both rehabbing and has decided he'd better pitch like Orel Hershiser if he wants to stay in the bigs. Mitre's scoreless streak has now reached 16 IP, only 43.1 more innings to go!

Chicago Cubs Media Guide Trivia Nugget of the Day:
Page 208: "Cubs Switch Hitter Information" - Entering the 2005 season, the Cubs have employed 119 position-player switch-hitters in their history, including at least one every season since 1960. The club has had six switch-hitting position players in a season four times, most recently in 1978 (Tim Blackwell, Mike Gordon, Steve Ontiveros, Rodney Scott, Joe Wallis and Jerry White).

The first switch-hitting Cub was player/manager Bob Ferguson in 1878. Don Kessinger, meanwhile, holds the switch-hitting longevity mark for the Cubs at 12 years (1964-1975).
