Reached hjome tonight about two minutes too late to insert Ludwick in place of Kubel. Kubel sits, Ludwick hits a 3 run homer. Every freakin' time. :-P


Why would anyone start Kubel against CC Sabathia?

Only someone who got home two minutes late would.

I had Konerko benched in favor of D Lee. I made same mistake last year by starting D Lee over Votto the day he supposedly had 3 HR.

I don't think anyone has ever hit 3 HR in one game ;-)


PS - My bench last night, Zobrist and Choo... 3/6 HR and a SB :~(
