    Wind blowing out at Wrigley. 17 extra base hits combined. 7 doubles, 2 triples, 8 homers. Cubs are beating SD, 11-8. Winding blowing out to left at 25 MPH and gusts at 35 MPH.

    What about the other side,what does the Yankee offense have to do to be successful vs Weaver?

    ————————————————————————————————————————-

    As far as I’m concerned, a quality start is allowing fewer runs than the other pitcher(s) allow in that game. That’s right…wins have more value than pretty ERAs.

  3. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    Hughes can win if he keeps the first 27 batters off of the bases.

  4. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    Pettitte’s got his hands full in his next two starts, too. He draws Verlander in his necx start on Sunday

  5. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    CUBS WIN!!! CUBS WIN!!!

    GB…….I like your quality start comment …….Need to take advantage of the few scoring opportunties that Weaver will allow……..This is going to be a tough series and a look into October

    afternoon, Pat. Hope all is well on your side of the country. Right now, what I care about most is wins. They can worry about the season run differential later. get it to 10 games over .500 and go from there.

    All this talk about Hughes being able to afford 200 tickets is silly. Are you supposed to spend 2.5% of your income on a single game? He probably doesn’t even know that many people and we have no idea how much of his money is tied up in assets and how much of it he gives to his family or friends.

    The real question is how CC has 200 friends that he can just invite to a ballgame when he’s in town. That’s incredible. Family and friends… 200 ?!? I have maybe 80.

  9. charlestonchew May 28th, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    80 in one city, that is =)

    Banuelos sent back to tampa to get treatment, since Scranton has no place for him to get treatment.

    Reminds me of the story I heard about Casey Stengel’s Mets (who were awful), a reporter in the press box sees a report on the wire and exclaims, “The Mets scored 19 runs at Wrigley today!” To which his colleague responds calmly, “Did they win?”

  12. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    That’s a tough park to play in I’d guess. From April to mid-May, the wind blows in and from mid-way through August it blows out. In September, nobody knows. It’s day to day.

    I remember when Marv Thornberry first joined the Mets and he hit a bases loaded triple; He was called out for missing first base. Stengel hobbles out to argue and giving the umpire everything he’d saved up since the start of the season. Throneberry tells stengel to save his breath because he missed 2nd base too. Stengel shakes his head, throws his hands up and amb;es off the field. Warrem Spahn had pitched for Stengel when he first joined the Braves in the 40s and then for Stengel with the Mets. Asked about his experiences, Spahn said, “I’m the only guy to play for Casey before and after he was a genius.”

    The early 60′s Cubs were as bad as the Mets were, despite having 3 HOFers on the team…Billy Williams, Ron Santo and Ernie Banks.

    GB……..Cubbies will always have a playoff quality team at least once a decade, and then will belly up some way, some how

    always seem to fall apart on them, Pat. They had the ’61 and ’62 NL ROY with Billy Williams and Kenny Hubbs. Hubbs was killed in a Utah plane crash. They had Larry Jackson win 24 games and had Lou Brock and traded them away for nothing. Phillip Wrigley was a great players owner, but, really, only cared about keeping them happy and giving the fans a cheap day of entertainment. Didn’t care about making money. The disaster was his revolving college of coaches. about 4-6 guys took turns managing the team. He had that great infield of Santo, Don Kessinger and Glenn Beckert and Banks, williams and Jim Hickman in the outfield and Randy Hundley catching plus Fergy Jenkins starting. They still lost about 100 games a year.

    How bad was the Cubs luck back then? Bad. Bob Hendley pitched a 1 hitter and wa;ked about on. The only run he gave up was on a bloop double and a 2 out double. Koufax decided to throw a perfect game against the Cubs that day. Milt Pappas had a perfect game with 2 outs in the 9th. Umpire Don Denkinger was pretty much squeezing Pappas all day. 27th batter, full count and Denkinger called the pitch a ball. Pappas, to this day refuses to talk to Denkinger.

    1 hitter and ***walked*** about ***one***

  18. Pat M. May 28th, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    GB…….1969 Cubs says it all

    Josh Norris?@jnorris427

    RT: @conorglassey: Lucas Giolito. RT @trevwolff highest upside player most likely to fall to Yankees?//Would be very nice for #Yankees fans

  20. GreenBeret7 May 28th, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    Yeah it does, Pat. They found as many ways to lose games that year as the Mets did over the years. I saw very few after April that year unless they were on AFVN-TV.

    I actually dig the hats this year that they will be wearing tonight. Usually I hate them.

    Bryan Hoch?@BryanHoch

    Brett Gardner took dry swings today in Tampa; David Robertson played catch. All went well, Girardi said. Gardner still about 10 days away.

    Hughes changeup,and curve + cutter will be just as important as his fb,but mainly his changeup.
    I don’t wan’t to jinx him,not my intentions,but one of these starts,he is going to pitch a gem instead of the 2 or 3 early runs,then hanging on.

    You can just feel it that hughes is just going to break out,and be dominant.Hope i am not wrong.It’s been a long ride.

  24. Pat M. May 28th, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    GB….I remember Don Denkinger from spring training games….Once the game got into the 5-6 th innings and us scrubs were in the game, that right arm was no stop……Especially true if there was a big leaguer on the hill……..The new HOF strike zone

  25. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    “As far as I’m concerned, a quality start is allowing fewer runs than the other pitcher(s) allow in that game. That’s right…wins have more value than pretty ERAs.”

    I have to admit I would be happy if the Yankees won 21-20.

    “Hughes can win if he keeps the first 27 batters off of the bases.”

    Smart a## :D But by your definition above he could also win by giving up 20 runs. Stop being so wishy washy GB.

  26. Tar May 28th, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    “Hughes changeup,and curve + cutter will be just as important as his fb,but mainly his change up”

    You could be right, but I like Pat M’s report:

    “Hughes is about spotting and locating his heater, everything else falls into place after that…….He’s finally getting better with his punchout pitches which I think has lead to his effectiveness as of late”

  27. Pat M. May 28th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    Latter for now, heading up the 55 to Angel Stadium….Great seats in the Diamond Club, about 5 rows brhind the plate……Hoping Katie is still the hostess for this section as she’s very skilled…..Hollywood material

    Who has it better than Pat M?

    GreenBeret7, Pat M, charlestonchew, Dionysius Thelxinoe, Unknown, ron, Tar, mick.

    What a great bunch.

    If I could be posting with this mix, it would be sheer pleasure to be here. I think it would be absent the needless Montero updates and all the snide Cahsman/Girardi snide that goes with it.

    I can dream, can’t I.
