That was an amazing game. Except for Cotts, the bullpen held it down. I love what Ryan Dempster just said on the postgame show that "I check the standings every day and I don't think the standings in April are any less significant than they are in September especially when you are playing games in your division". This just tied us for first place, yes, it's april, but I would like to look back and see the day the Cubs took over the division and held it there.

Back to the game, Demp looked good for the first couple innings, but then looked to struggle with his command. He struggled, but kept the team close.

Theriot... he was downright amazing today. He finds a way to get it done.

Fukudome... I was disappointed to see him try the bunt for a second time....not a good idea with Molina behind the plate.

Marmol.... wow... I love this guy. As much as I love him, Lou is going to have to be careful as he has pitched a lot already this year.

Gregg... THAT'S what I like to see. You pitch like that every day, I will have NO problem with Lou's decision.

Cotts... take your one way ticket and get the hell out of town. Do NOT step foot on a mound for the Cubs again! I don't care if he is the only lefty in the pen, his stats are about the same with righties as lefties...and they ALL SUCK! UGH... I don't know what they can do. Hendry can try to make a trade, but who's gonna want him. Is Jeff S. anywhere near ready to take on a 5th starter role and put marshall in the pen? Something has to be done, but I really think he has run out of "chances"

Rammy... how clutch was that? He had just told Lou he had never been 0-6 in a game, and I guess he wanted to keep it that way.

Soriano... that double play was awesome! Just simply awesome.

Guzman... Congrats on your first major league win!

One thing that did stick out was there were still a lot of runners left on base.

This was an all around team win, from pitching to hitting...from offense to defense.

Gonna try to get my heartbeat back to normal before the Blackhawks take the ice for their playoff game. The Bulls got it all started this morning, the Cubs now the Hawks.

Cotts is definately a head scratcher for me. He has a 94 mph fastball and a good curve ball. He just cant command either one of them. Honestly, you really dont need a LH in the pen if you have some RHs with changeups, which we dont. Our RHs come in throwing hard. I guess good lefty relievers are hard to come by. The guy Rammy hit out today- I think I have seen him for 15 years now. He still has a job. Jesse Orosco from the Mets- it seemed like he played forever. I have always wanted Damaso Marte.

Anyone starting to miss Dero a bit? Not that Font has done bad nor Miles, both are struggling a bit and are good players. I just miss Dero all over the field.

Wink

Just checked Marte's numbers with the Yankees- He has a 21.00 era- maybe they will cut him soon.

I have missed DeRo since I heard he was traded!!!!! He had a homer today and 6 rbi's. I not only miss his bat, his versitility on the field, but he was a great media guy who always gave us fans a chance to get to know him and the team through him.

I have a feeling most of the Yankees' pitchers are going to have inflated era's today after today's butt whoopin'..... 22-4.

This has been a wonderful series so far.... and there's one more to go as they play as the Sunday Night Game of the Week.... but how about these numbers:

Fans have been treated to 1,037 pitches from 30 pitchers. They have watched 56 hits, including 10 home runs, and 31 walks produce 38 runs. And they have watched 44 batters strike out.
