After the Cubs 4-3 loss over the Padres, Greg Maddux said at the post game "I'd rather lose like this, than 10-1 (yesterday's game score loss by the sox)". Anybody else think that was a knock on us?

Bah, he was just throwing numbers out there. Nothing else.

I don't know, but I'd rather lose 10-1 and have a (23-12) record than lose 4-3 and have a (15-21) record.

But that's just me. :D:

Anybody else think that was a knock on us?i dont think so, 10-1 seems like an arbitrary blowout score and i would hope, of all cubs players, maddux would be above such things

10-1 means your closer did not choke. Again.

I agree that he was just throwing random #'s out, I think the last team he wants to bash is the Sox before the poor Cubbies get crushed at the Cell next weekend.

Yep, a win is a win and a loss is a loss, regardless of the score.

Either way he's talking out of his ass, it's much better to get blown out (it happens to everyone) and know about it early and have the rest of the game to forget about it. A loss like that knocks you down, and I've seen it get in players' heads

i would rather lose 10-1. when i played football and we lost a game by 14 points or less their are to many what ifs on how the outcome could have changed. If your blown out its because you just aren't nearly as good or flat out sucked. 4-3 loss means one pitch changed outcome, one error, one baserunning gaff. 10-1 is much easier to handle

And if it were a 10-1 loss, people probably would be blaming the starting pitcher, even if he only gave up the first three or four.

Just you and most normal people. All 15-21 proves is you can lose 10-1 and 4-3 with no trouble. 23-12 means you're a pain in the ass to beat unless Johan Santana pitches or the umpires forget the rules.:D:

The only stab involving Maddux yesterday was the knife put in his back by Ryan Dempster.

I think it was just coincidental.

No.

And I'd rather lose 10-1. In a blown game in the 9th inning (May 5th ring a bell folks??) there are thousand's of 'what if'...in a 10-1 game you know you never had a chance in the first place.

With the Cubs down 8-0 today, I'm probably not the only person who wouldn't mind seeing the Padres score a couple more and the Cubs avoid the shutout with a run in the ninth.

And I would laugh.

I read somewhere that if the Cubs lose today, it will be their first season sweep in 120 years. Anyone know if that is true?

You read correctly, this is the first time the Cubs have been swept in a season series by a National League opponent.

Setting historic records for losing at beautiful Wrigley Field? Now that's Old Style!
