Ninth Inning (Top)
Well, what can I say about this game to wrap it up? Nothing. Absolutely nothing good can be said today and because this is a blog about Marmol, all things should be positive. I find it disturbing that we got shut out again, for just the second time this season. The team is now under .500 on the road for the year. Not a good thing. Last year they seemed to have the opposite problem. They could win on the road and sucked it up in front of the faithful at Wrigley. Lee has more errors than anyone else in the National League. Yeah, I find it hard to believe too. But here we are. Fukudome had a terrible series against the Reds, but he’s a good enough hitter that he can bounce back. I have all the confidence in him. The Cubs just need to do the little things right and everything will fall in to place. I know, easier said than done.
We’ll see you on Friday.
Today’s final 0-9 with the Reds taking 2/3 of the series.
