Sullivan on 670 The Score

Paul Sullivan joined Mully and Hanley yesterday to talk Cubs:
  • Wednesday it was George Castle who made Lou Piniella mad, Thursday it was a guy from Comcast.
  • Sullivan agrees with the decision to let Fontenot swing the bat with men on base earlier in the week. Some question Lou's strategy and think that Mike should have put a bunt down.
  • The Cubs are wasting amazing starting pitcher. Also, they are playing the teams "that you have to beat".
  • If you go by last year's records, the Cubs had the easiest April schedule in the National League.
  • At the end of the season, you are going to look back at these games and realize how much they mattered.
  • The bullpen situation has been straighten out. They have an ERA under 2 since Zambrano has been moved out there.
  • The guys in the bullpen do have a good time down there.
  • Sullivan says that the stars on the team are working on their own. Rudy Jaramillo will work individual with any players that want to. .
  • Aramis Ramirez seems to be slowly coming out of it.
  • Geovany Soto is quietly having a solid year.
  • It's too early to make any final judgements on Jaramillo.
  • The Cubs still feel pretty good about Lilly.
  • Ryan Dempster is a guy who will answer all of the questions win or lose. Dempser always understands the job of the media.
  • Sully thinks that the Demp we are seeing now is the one that we did not see at the start of last season. He is picking up where he left off at the end of last season.
  • The Cubs could have used Kevin Millar. They picked Tracy because he is left handed and can play first base.
  • Sully says that Kevin really does help in the clubhouse. He has a great personality that brings the team together.
  • The Nationals are a team that really have a good time and enjoy themeselves. The Cubs could use a guy like Millar to shake things up.
  • The whole personality of this team has looked flat so far this season.
  • The Cubs really need a left handed bat off the bench that can come up with a hit. Chad Tracy has not worked out.

That's it for now!
