I'm not sure that I believe the Cubs have an incredibly good high-powered offense. But I know I don't like the idea of stating Harang at home against anyone decent, and considering the potential for an explosion in the first game of the season... I think he'll have to take a seat on the bench.


GAB has a 3 year run index of 98, nothing to be afraid of. Harang last year had a home 3.31 era, versus 4.30 on road. In his 1 start at home versus Chicago, he won, going 9 innings, 3 runs.


I'm glad I followed my instinct on Harang - I remembered what the Cubbies did last year opening day (16 runs, same as today), and I had a bad feeling... well, actually a good feeling :-D about Harang.


Good call. I was saying that GAB to me, isn't a reason to sit a sp. It's neutral. I watched the game. Dunn was horrible. He let 2 balls drop, costing 4 or 5 runs. Red pitchers will have bad eras, if Dunn plays as bad as he butched LF today.


Make that 3 balls. One of them was iffy as to whether he coulda got to it. A real left-fielder woulda made the play, but it wasn't called an error.

As for GAB... I don't have the stats, and I believe you quoted the stats which say that GAB isn't *that* great of a hitters park, but I still just have a hard time believing it. It's certainly *built* like a hitters park - close fences, small foul area. And of course the batting-practice pitchers they throw out on the mound can't hurt either.
(taps little picture of a microphone)... is this thing on?

I benched Sabathia and Zito, and I started Peavy. All good moves so far...

I benched Schilling and Webb :~(

But the fact they pitched so well makes me feel great about the future, so it's bittersweet.

^It's ok, I'd rather not start two pitches who did very good then take a chance like I did and star A. Harang and D. Lowe. Both got pounded, won't be making that mistake again. :-t BUT I am in first in my league due to a lot of Ks from Ollie Perez and a lot of Hs/RBIs

Pettitte vs. the Marlins sure seemed like a good matchup this morning.
