Man, is this ever becoming way too predictable, the weekly Chris Volstad loss.
He went 6 innings, gave up 9 hits and 6 runs.
Dale Sveum said of his slider, "...it's getting hit too often and too hard."
Lotta people, including Volstad, say it's just the one bad inning.
And it's true, he does seem to get hammered in one inning per game.
But if you consistently can't find one of your pitches, well, that's just the inning everybody caught on.
I still have hope for him, though.
He's about 9 freaking feet tall and he's only 25.
Come ON, Chris - find your slider, man.
Cubs lose in Milwaukee.
Okay they got creamed in Milwuakee.
Brewers 8, Cubs 2.
Maybe Jeff Samardzija can keep the Cubs from getting swept today.
Either way, it's gorgous out.
Time for Pat Hughes and Keith Moreland, a transistor radio, a cold beer and a shade tree.
Enjoy the day, guys.
