5/27 Cubs 7, White Sox 0

Jeff Samardzija threw a career-best two-hitter Monday night to lead the Cubs to a 7-0 victory over the White Sox Monday night. Julio Borbon smacked his first home run and Anthony Rizzo hit a double, a triple and drove in two runs to back the right-hander, who collected his second complete game and first career shutout.

Samardzija struck out eight. He gave up a leadoff single to Conor Gillaspie in the third, and got Jeff Keppinger to ground into a double play. Alexei Ramirez also singled with two outs in the ninth.

This was the first of four Interleague games to be played between the intracity rivals in a new format in which the Cubs and White Sox will play two games at U.S. Cellular, then two at Wrigley Field.

That’s what I’m talking about. This is what this team has in it. It would be nice to see the Cubs play with more dominance and not blunder away games that they ought to win. I’m glad they let Samardzija try to go the whole game, and he succeeded.

Patrick, with all due respect I don’t think THIS team has 7-0 victories in it. This victory had all the stars lined up…our best (almost?) vs. one of the White Sox’s weaker pitchers etc. Just another somewhat lucky day at the ol’ ballpark as the White Sox are still a superior team, Peavy or Sale and we may have had an all together different game/outcome. The Shark pitched very well however vs. a superior team, can’t take that away from him. Good game indeed!!

Yes, in that vein am concerned about our starter tonight. On paper he represents a large bringdown from last night`s. I have little confidence in Jackson due to his poor outings of late. Isn`t he the weakest link in our rotation?

As of now, yes, I agree about him being the weakest link. But can you imagine if and when Feldman comes back down to Earth? This starting staff started out strong but with 4 months to go they will be hard pressed to be considered legit. I firmly expect to see a huge roster shake up this trade deadline despite the quality of the starting staff. The FO will stick with the plan…sign serviceable vets, trade them, stock up on talented minor leaguers….do it all over again all the while watching Soler, Almora, Baez….a few years later add a couple of premier free agents, sit back and watch Sveum manage the way HE WAS ADVERTISED (haven’t seen it yet…)

White, I need your attention for a moment, please. Did you know your team, Oregon State was named the #3 National Seed in the NCAA baseball tournament which begins this weekend? That`s rarefied air. They host a regional and open with UTSA (I think that`s Texas San Antonio, but please don`t quote me). Texas A&M is in the same regional and are the #2 seed. I think I recall mamma say he`s partial to them. Is good chance they will face each other. My team also is hosting and faces Army in opening game Friday. I

Good Morning Jhosk. Yes there was an article in the Oregonian this morning about Oregon State. Pat Casey is a great manager. He was there when Barney played and, as a matter of fact, asked Barney to go to Hawaii this past winter to help train the team. A nice trip for Barney and family since Barney’s roots are in Hawaii. Oregon State won 2 national championships when Barney played SS there. I’ll be rooting for them!

enjoyed the game let’s repeat it

That was a beautiful game! I WAS SO HAPPY! haha. But guess what you guys, I touched the second base from when Barney won his Gold Glove. The base against the Giants! It was a beautiful moment for me :’) I was so happy haha. But anyways, good job Cubbies! I’m so proud of you guys! I hope your ready for me, because I’ll be working with you guys in the future!

These are insightful points you make, mamma. I forgot that Sorry had the opportunity to go to Giants last season and declined. He`s got to be eccentric; i.e. he does not put a priority on getting a ring.

He’s scared. The spotlight on a contending team will expose him for the fraud he is.
I am surprised there would be any interest in him OTHER than some as a DH.
He can take his whopping 3-4, all singles day and strut about town as a going three
for four with an rbi or two but us KNOWLEDGEABLE fans know that he is NO
clean up hitter and NO outfielder. Rule in Hell rather than serve in Heaven, been like that for
a few years now and he’s getting nothing but older, slower and less productive.
