Default *Official* 5-27 A Memorial Day to Forget; CUBS 7 SOX 0 Postgamer

What a debacle. Very little went well tonight, other than Omogrosso's two scoreless innings.

We've seen more than enough of Flowers, DeAza and Jones.

Go Hawks.

Our clueless approach at the plate had something to do with that, too.

But he's not Bob Gibson! Our offense was John Shoop-like tonight!

The plate approaches have been bad for years. The Sox must not teach working counts. Gilliespie has some patience, but he'll probably work himself out of that habit fairly soon hanging around this team.
The bench is terrible and even at their best, they'd be worse than the starters.

For every miraculous performance, there's a game like this that reminds you where we're likely headed.

Yeah, but he's not this good . Every pitcher the Sox face is a potential 20 game winner according to Stone and Hawk. Every pitcher the Sox face also has unhittable stuff seemingly. The schmoozing the opposing pitcher act is getting old. The truth is the Sox have a very average to bad offense.

I'm on the phegley wagon now. Even though he probably won't get called up.

Hopefully Beckham will relegate Keppinger to super-sub duty.

Next, Phegley needs to replace Flowers.

Finally, I'd give Jordan Danks a shot as the starting CF, and park DeAza on the bench, and DFA Wise. Danks may not hit better, but we know he will field better, and he might hit better.

About the only teams the Cubs can beat are the Marlins and Astros and that's who we looked like tonight. Get to.500 and the next game look like a bunch of minor leaguers.

Lol, yeah, I was thinking the same thing . I almost expected this. They can never keep it up , hence the mediocrity the last several years. 2 hits , that's embarrassing.

Didn't we all know it was coming though, really.

If we had an average offense we would be in first place or very close to it.

Exactly, Phegly might not hit much better than Flowers either but you know what? By default he almost has to be a better defender. Put the best defensive team out there, that means De Aza and Flowers sit. Flowers should never have been a starting catcher to begin with.
