    That's a nice looking lineup. Hopefully Span and Mauer are ready to go. I just wish there was room for Parmelee.

    I like that lineup too.

    Good chance to keep feasting on bad teams and continue to climb.

    That last SO by Diamond was a thing of beauty, set that slider up brilliantly.

    Lets get some more runs for Diamond so he can cruise to 7 or 8 innings....

    And Doom comes through with a double. Time to extend his contract.

    Now if Plouffe can hit a bomb, this game will be broken wide open.

    Way to go Plouffe -- Cubs' pitcher's era is going up with every at bat.

    He has been clutch, and batting average finally above .200.

    I have been genuinely impressed with Diamond since his call up. It hasn't been lucky IMO.

    As usual, I agree with you Chief. I also have some hope that Diamond might be picked for the all star game if he can keep his era low.

    We're seeing now why they took him rule 5 and then traded for him to keep him here.

    My only concern here is he's been sitting on the bench a long time during this big inning. Hopefully he can keep his focus.

    Twins are off the chain today . I don't ask for long winning streaks. Just win each series.
