Oh man, what a disaster.
I mean, not really - it's only two games.
But for Kerry Wood and Carlos Marmol to start off the season completely gagging up leads just isn't good at all.
And having a hack like Adam LaRoche get 4 hits and a homer is just galling.
I was saying how happy I was that Jason Werth was sucking so bad with his gigantic, silly contract and then Marmol walks him.
I knew what I was going to draw for today right after that play.
Okay, so today it's Jeff Samardjiza on the mound, and I just hope he does well not because I'm afraid of the bullpen, but rather the enormous amount of negativity (raise your hand, Tim) happening already.
So there was some good stuff yesterday with the aggressive running.
Castro had a couple stolen bases, and Darwin Barney and Reed Johnson took 3rd and 2nd on that barely wild pitch by Craig Stammen. Nice.
And of course Matt Garza looked fabulous.
Just another shame loss, this time for Garza.
