Wednesday, May 19 Citizens Bank Park | 6:05 PM CT

Tom Gorzelanny, LHP (1-4, 3.60)
Cubs (18-22) @ Jamie Moyer, LHP (5-2, 4.57)
Phillies (24-14)


Cubs: Maybe being on the road will get Gorzelanny on track. The lefty has not won away from Wrigley Field yet but has a 2.50 ERA in his three starts. At home, he's 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA. In his last outing, which was at home, the lefty did not get a decision, giving up a season-high five runs on nine hits over five innings. He did strike out seven. Gorzelanny has made one start in his career against the Phillies and lost.
Phillies: Moyer allowed four earned runs in 6 1/3 innings in a victory Friday over Milwaukee at Miller Park. Moyer has pitched fairly well this season. He has kept the Phillies in almost every game he has pitched, which accounts for his 5-2 record after seven starts. Moyer allowed three homers to the Brewers, giving him 501 homers allowed in his career. That is second in baseball history. Only Robin Roberts has allowed more with 505, but that is a mark based on longevity more than anything.




Thursday, May 20 Citizens Bank Park | 12:05 PM CT

Ryan Dempster, RHP (2-4, 3.49)
Cubs (18-22) @ Joe Blanton, RHP (1-2, 5.49)
Phillies (24-14)


Cubs: Dempster got off to a rough start in the first inning of his last game, against the Pirates. He threw 30-plus pitches in the first and ended up with the loss, giving up three runs on four hits over seven innings. It was the right-hander's fourth straight loss. However, three of those losses have been quality starts. So far this month, Dempster is 0-3 with a 4.71 ERA. He's 4-4 with a 4.99 ERA in his career against the Phillies.
Phillies: Blanton looks at his 5.49 ERA and wonders how he got there. He actually has pitched better than his ERA has indicated. In Saturday's victory over Milwaukee at Miller Park, Blanton allowed five runs in seven innings. But he had allowed just two until Corey Hart hit a three-run home run with two outs in the seventh. If Blanton hadn't allowed that homer, he would be entering Thursday's start against the Cubs with a much improved 4.11 ERA. That said, he can't change that and hopes to have everything working Thursday.

Nice, Stevens has been very good this year after a slow start. Hopefully he can throw some damn strikes.

And I like Gorz's chances against the Phillies lefty-heavy lineup. And Chase Utley's in a bit of a slump right now, if that can last for two more days I'll feel pretty good.

StrandedCub
05-19-2010, 04:52 PM
I don't think Baker has played for quite some time so they were probably just trying to find a place to get him in the lineup. I don't find it that weird and honestly don't mind it that much. His bat should be in the lineup against lefties.

man man

The Phillies are always tough, I don't think this one will be a walk in the park at all. We'll split.

Yeah any of those spots are fine, it's just not crazy for him to be in RF considering Fuku wasn't going to play anyway. It's one of those things I wouldn't do but it's not bad enough that I would criticize Lou for it.

redwhitenblue
05-19-2010, 04:53 PM
It's a very weird lineup, especially considering Ramirez SUCKS against Moyer (1/11). Ramirez should have the day off with Baker at 3B and Nady in RF.

That would have probably been the best option. It really isn't all that weird of a lineup for Lou. I guess I have sort of come to expect lineups like this from Lou so I have become numb to them :shrug:

If you would have told me Gorzelanny would be doing this, and Soto, Castro, and Soriano would be doing what they're doing, and then told me we were under .500, I would have called you insane. This team is frustrating.

I'm going to sound like a meathead asking this, but is it possible that Lee and Ramirez being this bad is bringing down the offense?
