Good point , I think the end of last year left such a bad taste in our mouths we may be getting carried away here.

they had a 4 run lead going into the 8th last night.

the news was littered with "D-Lee is old" yesterday and he had to respond saying he's not and doesn't want time off.

that's a sticky situation

but if Lou is serious about resting his regulars - why not pull Lee and put Hoffpair at 1B last night in the bottom of the 8th. or he could have rested Soriano or Ramirez.

that gives them rest and their defensive replacements a chance to play.

Why in the heck are we criticizing our players on April 8 and 9? The Cubs only played three freaking games, and won two of them! You cannot go 162-0 in baseball. We need to be a bit patient with the hitters. Usually, the pitchers are ahead of the hitters in the first week or two. D-Lee will snap out of it. Give him time.

In the lead off spot he will get at least one at bat where they can not pitch the formula at him. This will give him a 25% more of a chance for success. )
D Lee has a slow bat and it does not look like it will be speeding back up soon. Drop him down to six or seven and he may see more off speed stuff and maybe let him catch up.
that was you? heard that call. Murph is an idiot.

He's doing better than everybody's Hero and 2008 cubs mvp Mark DeRosa, who is 0-12 with 5 strikeouts

if he plays like he did last night, anyone would

if he keeps that up, I dont want to get rid of him

that being said, now might be the best time to trade him, shows teams he might be able to be saved

My Bradly comment was intended to be sarcastic. I'm not judging or slamming players yet.

I hesitate to call anyone a failure this early in the season, but he has to step it up, seriously.

Fukudome at least had the last half of last season to suck, it's not so much that he's failing (yet) this season, but that there isn't much there to feel confident in.

I like him as a player but I don't know that he's helping us out much overall.
