Cedeno?!? Grand Slam Secures 8 - 1 Win Over Mets

. Tuesday, April 22, 2008



"Mmgtgtgptjkgjpgj!!!" - Text from John after Cedeno's Grand Slam

With the sweep of the Mets, we know Santo will at least wait it out until the 2009 call from Cooperstown, will move the Cubs lead in the NL Central to 1.5 games. It was the kind of game that we would blow last year - lead going into the late innings against a legit pennant contender. But we didn't. We played like a legit pennant contender.

Much like yesterday's game, we had the lead in the 8th inning, but we always know a little insurance. And, like yesterday, Ronny Cedeno (?!?!?) came through in the clutch - hitting a grand slam to propel the lead pretty much out of reach. It really shows the motivation not living in Iowa will have on someone.


Fact - Lilly's thumbs are finally out of his ass

Another "where the hell have you been" moment came when Lilly got through 6 innings, allowing just 1 run on 4 hits, and striking out 4. It brought his E.R.A. down to a suicide-risk 7.30 (Hey Ted! See where you fall on the table!), but he looked true to his #2 role and was much better than anything we've seen out of him this year. If we can get a little bit more out of the pitching staff, this team will be a real threat all year.
