9/24 Cubs lineup

Chris Rusin makes his final start of the season on Tuesday as the Cubs play host to the playoff-bound Pirates at Wrigley Field. Logan Watkins will start at second in place of Darwin Barney.

Rusin and All-Star Travis Wood (2.98 ERA) both have ERAs under 3.52. The Cubs look to have two left-handers make at least 10 starts and each turn in an ERA of 3.80 or less in the same year for the first time in 46 years when Rich Nye (3.20 ERA, 30 starts) and Ken Holtzman (2.53 ERA, 12 starts) did so.

Here’s the lineup:

Castro SS
Lake LF
Rizzo 1B
Navarro C
Schierholtz RF
Murphy 3B
Bogusevic CF
Watkins 2B
Rusin P

Watkins gets a start? Hitting 8th, but celebrate. 2 starts in a month, wow, thank you Dale Sveum.

And the Watkins obsession goes on!

Come on now White…..be nice. You know it is not an obsession, just a LOGICAL progression of viewing some young player’s talent i.e. Strop as the closer. Sveum has already pushed off starting Watkins way too long. He may go hitless tonight but don’t you think even Watkins at the cost of Barney deserves SOME playing time? White, you know it, I can feel the logic headed your way right now…..BLESSINGS!!!

Joey, joey, why do you make me be nice today of all days! :)). It is a rainy day in Oregon, I fell again and slit my finger open, I am sad that baseball games are almost over, and now you appeal to my good nature! I will try BUT ——— !

White, sorry to hear about your fall and injury. Please, never forsake your good nature. I make you do nothing you wouldn’t do on your own. No buts!!!! Your good nature has more than made my day countless times on this blog….YOU ARE THE “ANTI-HWSRN”. Civility and camaraderie must and will prevail!! THE OFF-SEASON WILL BE GREAT WHITE!!!

Could you possibly be Forest Gump’s mother?

Haha! :))

What a bunch of losers.

This is a totally “not fun” game! Geeezzz! Where to begin? ———- ??

Why dont you take a run to Monument Valley.

Maybe purchase a shrimp boat?

You know, “Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it. There’s, um, shrimp kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo, pan fried, deep fried, stir fried. There’s pineapple shrimp and lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp in potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That’s, that’s about it.”

Wow….Jasper….congratulations! A comment regarding food only? NO baseball talk, facts, stats etc…welcome to “Club Humanity”!! White and I are so proud of you!! It’s good thing!!

Well, being a Maine girl I prefer lobster! Steamed in seaweed on the rocks, slathered in butter! :))
