Cubs up 1-0

After two innings, Chicago leads. The Cubs scored in the first. Aramis Ramirez connected on a ball that whizzed past Aaron Harang and dropped in shallow center field.

Ramirez scored Ryan Theriot, who had singled to right field and stolen second base on Derrek Lee’s at-bat.

Dusty still hasn't seen those splits on Brandon Phillips, huh? Facing one of the toughest right handers in the league.

Griffey had a nice 8 hopper to the plate to allow a run. Bad luck continues for Harang. Garbage base hit to score two.

Once again, Reds offense looks intimidating. I almost want Patterson to play just so I have something to complain about during these 1-2-3 innings.

Moderator...Jouralist right? Try posting informative pieces that would otherwise be unavailable to Reds' fans. Your practice of cutting and pasting columns to this blog is tiresome. Additionally, how about providing thoughtful responses to even 10 % of the questions leveled at you. This could be a great avenue; the status quo greatly underwhelms. You can do better.

Wow, this is just really bad. Shut out for the 3rd time this year. Take me back to the early 00s when we went a year and a half scoring every day.

Harang is 1-5 with a 3.09 ERA. I bet noone feels worse than him.

Most pitchers are right handed, are you suggesting our 30/30 near gold glove 2nd baseman become a bench player?

Or just that DB stops batting him in the 2 through 4 holes?

i want phillips in there because he better learn to hit them, for the same reason the bruce bandwagon thinks experience is important.
