1 IP, 3 hits, 4 earned runs, 2 walks, 1 HR...BUT 2 K's!!!Actually, only 3 ER. One was unearned due to a throwing error by...Balsa Wood. I think he's on to a foolproof method to reduce his ERA.

And don't for get the 1 HBP and the 1 SB.

Getting two out of the three outs by strikeouts will earn Wood an "encouraging outing" story from the media. They will forget about the 4 runs (3 earned).

5 runs (3 earned). Encouraging to get the Ks, even if you give up HRs I guess!

You can bet that Dusty's boy, "BB," is waiting for the opportunity to spin this in favor of the Cubs. And just as I typed that "BB" blamed the Giles HR on the homeplate ump.

Ron Santo is no doubt following suit.

With the 5 runs and 50+ pitches Carrie has thrown, there (potentially) goes the "Thinking Dude's" strategy of Carrie first and then Prior in the second game to save the bullpen to follow Prior in his first start this year.

As somebody else alluded, it is not enough that the Padres just hold the score as it is. They need to knock Wood around for more, or at the very least keep the pitch count high. The bullpen needs to be wasted before the second game.

What did the ump put the ball on a tee or something so that it was easier for Giles to hit it?

"BB" said that a preceding pitched was strike three. Hence, Giles wouldn't have hit the HR.

It will be interesting to hear the announced attendance today seeing that other than the bleachers the park is empty.

I was at the Cub game Monday. The bleachers were full but the upper deck was half empty, the lower about 1/4 empty. Still the announced attendance was 36K.

45 minutes before the game started the scalpers by the Addison EL had fists full of tickets and were shouting that they were under face value.

You're right. But did you read that in any reports on the game, did you hear about it on the local news?

Occasionally, this happens at The Cell where there are less in the stands than the announced attendance. The discrepancy is usually noted in the Cubune, on The SCORE and on the news.

They'd probably report they were at the ballpark but it was too cold so they all stayed in the cozy neighborhood taverns that surround the ballpark and cheered the team on from there. Heck they'd probably do a live remote if they could to top it all off.

Bob Brenly = the John Madden of baseball. They showed the kids from the IHSA class 7A football state champs (Libertyville), who had gone 14-0 on the season. Brenly said, "I believe that's what they refer to as a 'perfect season'."

From Chicagosports.com:

"Barrett rips one to left and Adam Hyzdu, who somehow snuck in the game under WGN's radar, makes a great diving catch on the warning track. Lee pulls a Moises Alou and is half way to home by the time he realizes Hyzdu made the catch and is doubled up easily. I'm thinking, Hey, maybe Lee can score from second after tagging up on that, considering Hyzdu took a facefull of dirt and then had trouble getting up. But, no. They flash back to the infield and Lee's hustling back to second. Oh, brother."

I was laughing yesterday when I saw the Burnitz error and then when he later struck out with 2 men on.

I thought to myself "Wow, these guys won't miss Sosa at all. Burnitz will more than make up for all those strikeouts, errors and missed cutoff men." :D:

I'm not so sure it was corpseball. Peavy is a pretty damn good pitcher. On Baseball tonight last night they said he was the best pitcher currently in Chicago. BURN!!!

Also the fact that Wood was serving up meatballs and they were down 4 runs before they even took one swing probably had something to do with it.

I heard it on the radio, then saw it as a highlight. Tough to rip D Lee a new one on this play, it was a sensational diving catch where the LF ended up belly-flopping onto the warning track on his dive and held onto the ball. Had to look like a gapper, but when you're down by 5-6 runs or so by that point...

From the Southtown (http://www.dailysouthtown.com/southtown/dssports/pro/141sd8.htm):
The natives got so restless Wednesday they booed Kerry Wood. The Cubs' star pitcher was roughed up in the first inning of an 8-3 loss to San Diego in the first game of a doubleheader at Wrigley Field and Cubs fans booed. It's believed to be the first time "Kid K" received an abrasive reaction at the Friendly Confines. Wood's reaction? "I didn't hear it," Wood said.

With the wind blowing from left field to right field at 16 mph, the Padres hit four home runs in the game the three off Wood going into the right-field bleachers. "I was surprised to see the ball leaving the park," Wood said. "It makes you wonder how far they would have gone if the wind was not blowing in."
