6/24 Cubs (Lilly) @ Mariners (King Felix) 2:40 CSN/XM177


Ted Lilly, LHP (2-6, 3.42)

Cubs (31-40)



Felix Hernandez, RHP (5-5, 3.39)

Mariners (30-41)

Cubs: Lilly struggled in his last start, giving up eight runs (six earned) on nine hits over 5 1/3 innings against the Angels. It was the most runs he's served up since being charged with nine on July 20, 2009, at Philadelphia. Lilly gave up four runs in the first inning; he had given up one run in the first in his previous 10 starts combined. The lefty gave up multiple homers for the third time, and second this month.


Mariners: Hernandez has taken four of his past five starts through at least eight innings, and his most recent outing was his best yet. He followed up Cliff Lee's shutout with a one-run complete game, walking one and striking out nine. That was a point of pride for Hernandez, who wasn't happy about having to leave his previous start after 8 2/3 innings. To say the least, he and Lee make a formidable pair. There's just no telling how much longer it will last.

Wow, kudos for typing that much unless you copy and pasted. In which case that's still more effort than this team deserves at this point.




Win, idiots.


Eh, at this point I'm not sure I want them to win anymore. They are so far down, and back, and it's not like they've shown the slightest inclination to play better. Go for the draft pick and front office overhaul.
