    No Cubs/Rich Harden debut thread?

    Well, I'll start it.

    He went 5 1/3rd shutout innings with 10 K's, 3 BB's and allowed 5 hits. Pretty damn good, even if it is against the lowly Giants. I'm excited to have him in the rotation. I haven't been able to watch the game, so I'm not sure why he was pulled in the 6th, but with a 7-0 lead, no need to keep him in there longer than that.

    Re: No Cubs/Rich Harden debut thread?

    He was pulled in the 6th because he was at 96 pitches.

    Very typical Harden start. Didn't give up runs, but couldn't go deep into the game. Good news for Cub fans, though, is that his velocity was back up. He was consistently hitting 96 while I was watching, while in his previous start he was hovering around 91.

    Early reports are he felt a pop in his shoulder. He is getting an MRI on it Monday.


    Just kidding

    If he stays healthy, he's the best pitcher available that was picked up and one of the best in baseball.

    First two guys reached base in the 6th, then Harden got his 10th strikeout. Gaudin finished the inning.

    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Extra innings now in a game that was led 7-0 at home going into the 8th inning. Poor pitching management by Lou today.

    Cubs would be well served to try and pick up one more BP arm.

    Might as well try for Street or Fuentes.

    LOL @ Mark DeRosa trying to bunt on 0-1. It's like he expected the pitcher to throw it at the bat.

    But, then Wilson comes back with 4 straight balls. My God, San Fran still sucks.

    Re: No Cubs/Rich Harden debut thread?

    On second glance, safe.

    So, Cubs fans, how long do you leave Marmol in the setup spot? 10 ER in his last 7.1 IP. Do you hope he works through it?

    Cubs win! I hope there's nothing wrong with Marmol, and it was just one of those outings.
