Good to be home

We have an exciting slate of interleague games for this homestand, as we invite the Twins, White Sox and Indians into the “Friendly Confines.” We’ll have tons of game-day photos all week and some sneak peeks at our next publications.

Soriano, LF
Fontenot, 3B
Bradley, RF
Lee, 1B
Soto, C
Fukudome, CF
Theriot, SS
Miles, 2B
Wells, RHP

Right-hander Kevin Slowey (8-2, 4.21 ERA) takes the mound for the Twins.

Bonus “Matchups”

Cubs special assistant Dave Littlefield on today’s Twins starter:

“Kevin Slowey gives up hits but, simply put, keeps guys off base. He’s not just a finesse guy. He has a solid fastball with some sink and a cutter that gets the ball going in different directions to the hitter.”

You can get a full-page breakdown of the Twins by purchasing our Scorecard EXTRA, still just $2 at Wrigley Field.


I can’t take watching this team anymore. This is the most pitiful offensive lineup I have seen in years. With any hitting this team would be in first place by 6 or 7 games right now, the pitching has been outstanding and deserves better. It all starts with having a leadoff guy with an OBP under .300. Granted not having Ramirez has been a factor, but shouldn’t result in what we’ve been suffering with for weeks. Jim Hendry wake up, this team needs a legitimate leadoff hitter now.

i cant BELIEVE soriano is still leading off he is hitting 233!! all he does is strike out!! he should be batting 6th!! how about this lineup theriot- fontenot-fukudome-lee-bradley-soriano-hill-blanco or scales batting 8th if zambrano pitching let him bat 8th trade soto he must of been on the juice the last 2 years if soriano continues to lead off it only means disaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

are you kidding me with bradley!!!!!!!!!!! pinella shoould of pulled him out of the game at that instance wake up cubs!!!!!!!!!!!

come on LOU stand up & be a manager instead of a BABYSITTER .when outfielders cannot rember outs they should be sent back & some new kids brought up.
