Triple Header In Florida

Lots of baseball to watch in southern Florida Friday night.

The White Sox and Yanks were on WGN. Kansas City was playing up the road at Tampa and the Cubs were in Miami of course.

I stopped surfing the cable box with the Cubs tied 2-all in the seventh.

Another typical Cubs game in Miami: low scoring and the Marlins carrying all the momentum.

Reminds me a bunch how the Cubs use to struggle playing at Montreal. Whatever the case, Chicago is 30-35 all time at Land Shark Stadium.

Not sure why Marmol has problems throwing strikes this season?

His two walks, which allowed the go-ahead runs to score, give him 46 in 50 innings pitched. Not good.

I get the feeling Carlos wants to fool batters more than he wants to go after them. His stuff is too good for that if he just throws strikes.

Another strong outing from Harden. He’s been money in the second half!

Boy, you hate to see Scott Rolen traded to Cincinnati. Not that it affects the Cubs so much this season, but the guy was a Cubs killer for years with St. Louis.

Huge trade for the South Siders adding Jake Peavy. He’s a difference maker in the Cross Town Classic.

One more day at the beach before heading back north to Chicago.

Probably wouldn’t hurt the Cubs to get out of sunny Florida too.
