Cubs Bring Out The Aces

Yesterday, the Cubs shelacked(I hope that’s the right spelling) the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-1. The money guys played like money guys. Alfonso Soriano got a huge Home Run putting to rest any rumour of his demise.  Carlos Pena whacked in an RBI which if he keeps that up, he’ll be chipping away at the scoreboard all season long.  Aramis Ramirez proved that he’s the big play guy as well with two hits.  Check out the box score!

Who needs Carlos Silva when we have Randy Wells.  Early on in the spring training, and I mean early on, I made a case for Carlos Silva, but I was wrong.  Randy Wells is the right man for the job and he did just that yesterday picking up his first win of the season.

In the end, the big aces won the game yesterday and that’s what they got to do if the Cubs want to win their division this year.

    I have to admit, I was hoping for Silva to be the long reliever in the bullpen. I never imagined they would cut him a check to watch him go. I’m *ecstatic* about the bullpen as it is, and we have some good arms that can be called up. What a difference a year makes.

    Mark: Sounds like it was an all-around good win for your guys. They need a nice long winning streak to get ahead and really believe they have a shot this year.

    It okay, everyone has seemed to make a mistake thinking Silva is a real ballplayer and not aconstant argument pushed into a jersey.
    Pena will be whittling at the scoreboard all season long. Still think besides the Rays and their short RF, the Wrigley confines played to his power strengths.
    Plus he has a dining partner for roadtrips in Matt Garza, always a plus to have conversation during meals.
