I figured it would look something like that. Todd has won some games for the cubs and as a fan that means something to me. Maybe he isn't the best to put out there everyday but he has his place, maybe just as a sub and pinch hitter. I just don't want to see him dragged through the mud here. It's not like anyone expects him to be great right? He just seems to fit along with the Cubs mediocrity. If I see him succeed in a few potential winning situations and watch him suck normally, that's better than he average Cub, the way I see it. And that makes me happy. So really my view on Hollandsworth is apart from my standard view on players, due to my love for the Cubbies. I can say I am happy that my heart and head haven't gone totally to stone as the discipline needed to be successful in fantasy baseball has been instilled in me. Being subjective and blinded by pure enjoyment of a team is part of baseball as far as I am concerned.

whoa. where did that come from?

Ok, back to stats. this is an interesting one: Throughout his career Hollandsworth has only once earned 100 hits or more in one season for one team and that was in his first full season, with the Dodgers in 1996. Wierd.

Hey I like the new kid too ;-D

Intresting that this would happen today, like a half hour after my post above. A changing of the guard. Go Murton! :-D

Bottom 8th: Chi Cubs
- L. Hawkins relieved B. Tomko
- D. Lee singled to center
- S. Eyre relieved L. Hawkins
- J. Burnitz flied out to center
- A. Ramirez singled to shortstop, D. Lee to third
- M. Murton hit for T. Hollandsworth
- M. Murton singled to right, D. Lee scored, A. Ramirez to second

- N. Perez ran for A. Ramirez
- R. Cedeno fouled out to first
- M. Barrett hit for H. Blanco
- M. Barrett grounded out to third

Game tying sac fly! It was counted as a single because the sun was so bad but in normal conditions it was a perfect sac fly, after holding out until 3-1 and showing good plate discipline.

What's more, he's more than once been down 0-2 and drawn a walk. That's the kind of patience the Cubs need in the LEADOFF position. Hairston has been doing alright recently, but i say if he falls off, then id like to see murton get a chance before anyone else. ;-D.
