Box score for 3-11-07 and cubs notes

Here is the link to the Cubs win over the Brew Crew-

Colvin, Aram, and Fox had the bats working today. Colvin went 2 for 4 with 2 runs and a RBI, Aram added more offense with 2 hits and a RBI. The big blow today was Jake Fox who only had one at bat and made it count by smacking a 3run HR as a pinch hitter. It was Fox's 2nd homer in 2 days. Fox of course had a meeting with Lou a day ago and expressed how he would move positions if that met he had a better chance to make the ball club. Fox has always had a great bat but his D behind the plate is suspect. I expect him to make the start in AAA Iowa.

As for pitching today Marquis looked terrific again. He pitched 4 innings giving up 1 run on 6 hits and had 2 SO. His era is now 2.00. Also Wood only gave up one hit in an inning of work and Dempster looked good with pitching a flawless inning.


1. Prior will make a minor league start on Thursday at Finch Park. Prior arm feels fine, it is his mechanics he is worried about. Lets see if there is any improvement this time.

2. Lou said he should now his Starting 5 by March 20th. That would give Prior, Miller, Cotts, and Guzman all 1 to 2 more starts.

3. Cliff Floyd will see his first action Tomorrow against the San Francisco which will be televised on CSN.
