Well, of the kid starters (not relievers) we've seen this season, Casey Coleman seems to be the guy.
Thomas Diamond looks more physically impressive, but he'll have to wait for another chance I guess.
Coleman has that fighter mentality thing where he hangs in and doesn't fall apart when he either doesn't have his best stuff or just has the rotten inning.
Mike Quade says he's made a "wonderful" impression.
Yesterday he went 6 innings: 5 h, 4 BB, 2 R, 5 SO and the Cubs win 5-3 over the Marlins for win numero five in a row. Their longest streak of the season.
Marlin catcher Brad Davis and 3rd baseman Wes Helms kinda brain-farted up a run for the Cubs: with Cub runners on 1st and 2nd, Starlin Castro walked. Everybody moves up, right? But Davis threw down to 3rd and Helms, while his body was in the area of 3rd base, his head was elsewhere and the ball went into left.
And today it's another chance for us to feel either The Fear or Hope for Jeff Samardzija, and The Fear or Hope for The Chicago Bears as we can flip between the games at noon.
I love these kinds of Sundays.
Lastly, if Casey Coleman sticks next year, you can expect me to be calling him "Mighty".
