Where have these guys been all year? From Starlin Castro stealing home (technically) after a crushed triple, to Ramirez’ two 2-run doubles to home runs for Lee, Soriano, Soto to terrific starting pitching by Dempster…these are the Chicago Cubs we hoped to see in April. Unfortunately, it’s mid July.
The only negative was the four runs given up by Bobby Howry in the 9th but that’s to be expected from someone who sucks. Maybe it’s time to bring back up Jeff Samardzija, who’s 5-1 with 49 K’s in 48.2 innings since being sent down to Iowa, so the 2011 manager can evaluate whether or not the ex-WR has a real future in the majors or not.
And now, for your viewing pleasure the 2nd half of the 2010 season’s first edition of Go Cubs Go.
