22 in a row retired by Maddux after 8. Wow!
What a change in scenery will do for a guy.

He's done for the night. Great job!

I'm watching the game right now...

He gave up 2 hits over 8 innings, and retired 22 straight at one point.

Craziness.

Do you think he likes that cavernous park? Joe Morgan was talking about how that fly ball Bonds hit would have been a Home Run at Wrigley.

I caught most of his outing. 68 pitches through 8 innings?:o: That may be more impressive than the 22 retired in a row.

Too bad the Dodgers couldn't score for him. 0-0 going to the 9th.

He only had 68 pitches.

Now that's dealing. Wow.

I know its the Giants and all, but that's impressive. A good ol' fashioned pitcher's duel, I love games like this.

Edit: And Buehrle beat me too it

Dodgers win 1-0 in the 10th on a walk-off HR by Russ Martin. One of the best games I've watched this year.

15 win in last 16 for the Dodgers. This is after they lost 13 out of 14 in late July. That's some kind of turnaround.

Why'd he get pulled if he'd only thrown 68 pitches? Pinch hitter? I guess that'd make sense in a 0-0 game. I didn't see the game though.

Coletti (sp?) rolled the dice on some of his trade deadline acquisitions and they completely filled in the holes. This Dodger team could do some post season damage... which would be great for me because I'd love to go to a Sox World Series game out here.

It's fun being able to cheer for you again Greg! Good outing sir.

You're not kidding. If their pitching holds strong, that's a damn good team. Maddux, Penny and Lowe are all potentially dominating.

And Russell Martin and Andre Ethier are absolute studs. Furcal, Kent and Nomahhh with Drew and those 2 youngsters AND a resurgent Kenny Lofton...dangerous indeed.

I would hardly call it a roll of the dice. If they had kept Izturis, that would give them an infield including Izturis, Betemit, Garciaparra, Kent, Lugo, and Furcal. The Cubs, when looking back, could have got more for Maddux than an expendable backup shortstop for Greg Maddux (and this isn't because he's doing so well).

Today was one of the first days I could really sit back and enjoy watching Maddux pitch. I knew all those times that he was with the Cubs that if he did well, I'd hear about how he should go into the HOF with the Cubs from their fans, which really pissed me off.

I've always been curious about that nickname. Other than the obvious connection to "Maddux" I've never gotten calling him Mad Dog. If there is anyone to whom that nickname doesn't apply, it's Maddux. Al Hrabosky? Rich Gossage? Bob Gibson? Those guys were mad dogs. They scared people.

Maddux? No way.

Yeah, I've never found Ferris Bueller to be intimidating either. :redneck

68 pitches in 8 innings is unheard of...and this is his third excellent start in row. It's amazing how successful players can be once escaping the Cubs organization...

The Cubs don't have a jinx, the Cubs ARE the jinx. Good for Maddux.
