Sweet Lou Quote of the Day

The Cubs two biggest run producers are off to a slow start this season. Ramirez is hitting .155, Lee .221 (as of 5/3).

Said manager Lou Piniella: "Both those guys, you look at their bubble gum cards, they're going to hit. The sooner they hit … it makes it (easier) for the rest of the lineup. But the rest of the lineup is doing a nice job."

Let's look at their bubble gum cards and what Lou is getting at:

Aramis Ramirez's lifetime average is .286

Derrek Lee's is .284.

Assuming neither one is injured or suddenly "over the hill", things should get better.

2009 UD Artifacts from Jewel Clearance Cart

Four dollars got me these four pack packs of 2009 Artifacts. I'm not blown away but I did get a Carlos Zambrano (the highly paid Cubs set-up man), a 05/25 Jay Bruce and some other pretty nice players. Oh yeah, and a moose!
