6/28 Post-game quick hits

Lou Piniella wasn’t happy with the Cubs defensive play on Sunday. Part of the problem was the wind that blew Jermaine Dye’s pop up in the sixth from in front of third base to shallow left. Ryan Theriot tracked the ball, but couldn’t get his glove on it.

“We’re going to have to shore up some areas as far as defensive,” Piniella said. “Offensively, we’ve had our problems. Their pitcher [John Danks] pitched good and had a good changeup. It just wasn’t a good game for us. What can I say?”

* Aaron Miles only hit off the batting tee on Sunday. His right elbow is still bothering him, and the Cubs were able to get by without him while playing in American League ballparks. They may have to make a move if he’s not available now that their attention is back on National League play. He hyperextended the elbow last Wednesday during batting practice.

* Angel Guzman, a key part of the bullpen, could pitch this week for Class A Peoria in Kane County if he passes a workout on Monday. If all goes well, Guzman could pitch Tuesday for the Minor League team.

Hawk and Stoney had it right, when during the broadcast yesterday, the both agreed that “it made no sense” to brake up a team that last year was the best team in the NL. And for what? The want of more left handed hitters!!! The new left handed hitters have ended up on the disabled list and when they do play, they are not very productive. So far this year it is very sad. And now we have to face DeRosa on the Cardinals. Maybe it is time for Jim Hendry to go. Bad player moves and a 3 year contract on Bradley. We can’t even trade him. Who whould want a little baby on the their team? 7 teams in 9 year tells you something.

I have been a cubs fan since 1987. I’m 30 yrs old and have never, ever, seen a team with this much talent look this bad. I thought Lou would come in here and crack the whip. It seems like the opposite has happened. Now I know its not all Lous fault. That so called gm of ours needs to be fired. Every move he made this year was wrong. And then he has a chance to half way redeem himself and get DeRosa back, and he lets him go to the Cardinals! #$%@
I just dont get it. I love Lou and for him, I hope it turns around. But now matter what, Hendry has to go.

George & nbriggs we’ve been calling for Hendry’s head for months now. But I gather from George’s comment about listening to Hawk and the Stone Pony that you are a Sox fan, so I’ll forgive you’re not being in the loop on that. Hendry’s done nothing but tear apart a great team and found ways to handcuff the manager. Many of the moves he made in previous years were lucky (Aramis Ramirez). But the money he’s thrown out the window (Bradley & Soriano) is just confounding. Two years ago there was talk about getting Bradley and everyone knew what a head-case he was, but Hendry signed him last year anyway. What an ignoramus! I’d like to see Hendry’s head on a platter or a stake through his heart!

cubbieblue. Why did you assume I was a Sox fan? “For give” me for what? Just because I happened to listen to Hawk and Stoney? Don’t jump to wrong conclusions. Those two guys are far more forward and honest in there comments than either Len or Bob. Did you disagree with what the said? I don’t think so. Would you have ever heard Len or Bob (or for that matter, Pat or Ron, and I love those guys) make a comment like that. That 1936 in my name is the first year I became a Cub fan. So, I have been in the “loop” a very long time. By, the way, agree with all of your comments regarding the Cubs. This year, so far, they have been a hard time to watch.

Cubbeeblue. Just because I listened to Hawk and Stoney, that makes me a Sox fan? I don’t think so! They are just far more interesting to listen to during a City Series. They don’t have be careful about what they say about the Cubs. You would not hear that type of comment about the Cubs for Len and Bob (or even Pat and Ron, and I love those guys). However, I do agree with you on your above Cubs comments. Cub fan since 1936 and I am “in the loop”!!!!!!!

Cubbeeblue. Sorry for the double comment posting. Did not know both comments would appear. I not trying to beat you over the head. Take care. Go Cubs. George.
