The OFFICIAL 2011 Chicago Cubs Season Thread

The bullpen looked pretty solid. Gregg had a little more trouble than I would like but he got the save and that is what is important.


I think we have possibly the best rotation in baseball. Our 1-4 guys can hang with anyone and if Sean Marshall can control his curve he can be a nasty pitcher.

Soriano had a good start and he is a key to our sucess. I love Milton's aggressive approach to strikes and his patience to not chase bad pitches.

The only weak link I see is Fukudome... I know he is a lefty, but honestly his defense in Center isn't very good (although he is learning the position) and he seems to pull off of pitches and slap them instead of staying on them and driving them. I don't think Lou will have a lot of patience with him if he isn't hitting. I really thought Reed Johnson would win the everyday job, but I guess they have too much money tied up in Fukudome.

Looking forward to seeing what Miles can do against Lefties and how his defense holds up if he is asked to play several different positions.

Hoffpaur is a stud, too bad there really isn't a place for him everyday.

I kinda wish we would trade Dlee and start Hoffpaur at first
Cubs win. Cards blow a 9th inning lead. It's a good day.

How about Soriano getting the season started right? Awesome!

I like to go to cubs games and make fun of the foreigners and tourists that go to the games...
After ruining our perfect season, Teddy Roosevelt tries to salvage what is left of it by taking the hill


Taking the hill for the Astros is the one, the only, the great
