Cubs lose, 2-1.  Fun to have a box score again!

Cubs only score 1 run and lose to the Brewers. Time to panic yet?

I listened to last half.  Got to here Mills, Maples, Underwood, and De la Cruz all pitch.  Mills and De la Cruz were both guys I was really interested in entering last year; then they missed so much that I kinda forgot about them.  Glad both were healthy enough to come out pitching. 

Radio notes:  Maples hit 97, good stuff, but was wild and walked a guy. 

Mills, who's obviously not a fast stuff guy and depends on location, walked first guy on 4 pitches, missing badly on all before settling.  Last year coming in, he was a guy with a shot to emerge as their #6 starter, and that never got close to being true.  But perhaps he'll settle in and be available for that role, an alternative to Tsen, this year? 

Underwood was 93-94, whiffed first guy on 3 pitches and finished his 1-2-3 inning in about 6 pitches, all strikes. 

De la Cruz had an easy inning, they said he was 93 and looked really good, although after getting ahead on one guy 0-2 he nibbled off the edge and walked im.  They said he worked really, really fast. 

It would be super cool if De la Cruz stayed healthy all year, and had a big breakout year.  The Callis and BA scouting reports suggest he projects as a fairly decent-control strike-thrower, and has good stuff.  If he stayed healthy and had a breakout season, would be fun to have Alzolay thriving in AAA and De la Cruz looking really good in AA during the second half.

Thanks Craig.

I still have hope that Underwood could at least be a relief guy.

Both of those plays by Baez were plays that not in one hundred second basemen could accomplish, except perhaps in a one-in-a-lifetime feat.  The amazing thing about Baez is that he does it on a fairly regular basis.

Were both of those in the same game?  Giving two outs to a pitcher in one game and preventing two baserunners is huge.
