I wish we still had mitre...

Why don't you run up some Corey Patterson vs. Jacque Jones stats? Their pretty close, as far as I can tell.

Sean Marshall still has loads more potential than Koronka, and Mitre was traded for Pierre, not for a pitcher. Have to wonder, would we have sent them Willaims instead of Mitre if the Marlins would've agreed to that?

Williams has been dissapointing so far this season, but I like Marshall. We'll see about Rusch.

I still like the Mitre trade (I just wish Nolasco could've been left out of it), and well, the Koronka trade maybe wasn't brilliant. We got Bynum in that, right? He hasn't impressed me so far. Speedy left-hander who has trouble hitting and seems to play the outfield lackadazically. We traded a lefty minor league pitcher for a speedy pinch runner.

Here are their lines so far this year:

JJ (40 ABs in 13 games): AVG .200 | HR 2 | RBI 5 | OBP .250 | SLG .375

CP (32 ABs in 15 games): AVG .156 | HR 1 | RBI 4 | OBP .156 | SLG .250

Neither is impressive but Jock looks like he might be coming around...his homer this afternoon was a rocket.

I just liked Mitre's style, ground ball after ground ball. Seems like he could develop into quite a pitcher.

Bynum is quickly becoming the most worthless player on the squad.

Mitre was really impressive in two starts last year, and pretty much worthless in the others. I just keep wondering what he was doing right in those two starts.

Yeah, Bynum makes me nervous. If we had room on our roster for pinch runner I'd think he was great, but I'm not sure we have that luxury at the moment. Can't wait to get Pagan back, because I have to figure Bynum will be packing his bags and working on his swing in Iowa.

And, yeah, Jacue's home run was absolutely smashed. It was great for him, because it seemed to be the only good swing he took all day. I really hope he starts laying off the bad pitches, because you can't hit if you swing at the bad ones. Ask Corey.

Our 1, 2, and 3 hitters were great today. I don't mind having a guy hitting 3rd who doesn't have great power, because right now we've got a great HITTING 1-3. Not making outs comes before hitting for power. Still, losing Lee really hurts. But having two parts speed, one part RBI/contact at the top, that's a recipe for success. Let's hope Cedeno continues to hit and play his role well (3B, 2B, two Sac Bunts, an RBI in 3 ABs).

If Ramirez can start to hit, the top of the line up will score some runs even without Lee. We've got 1-3 guys who can get on base. And Pierre and Cedeno will make a lot of pitchers and infielders very nervous. If Ramirez starts driving in runs again, Walk is going to see plenty of hitable pitches.

The game is on ESPN tonight, so maybe we will get to see Z's first win of the season.

Come on, Zambeastie!

Z may be our hard luck pitcher for this year. We have one most of the time. 2003-2004 it was Clement. 2005 I think it was Maddux. Maybe it's just Z's turn. I hope not though. We need him to win.

He was good AFTER the third inning today. But he racked up the pitches real early, and early walks came back to bite him for 2 runs. That hurts.

Let's hope the Cubs can close this one out.

What's up with Jacque "All I Hit Are Long Balls" Jones?
