Giants Notes: Blach shows resiliency; Another option in center?

CHICAGO John Lackey's night started with a leadoff homer. Ty Blach's night started with a 13-pitch battle.Neither one is a positive for a pitcher, but Blach didn't view it that way. He actually appreciated Ben Zobrist stretching him out."It's good to have a battle like that and get you locked in," Blach said. "It gets you focused and you'll be like, I can execute and get guys out. It's good. It's a good battle."

Giants @ Cubs: Blach vs Lackey (Game 43)

SF (19-26): RHP Ty Blach (1-2, 4.15) CHC (22-20): RHP John Lackey (4-3, 4.37) First pitch: 7:05pmCST Lackey pitched pretty Lackey-like in his last outing giving up 3 ER in 5.1 and beating the Reds. Overall, the Giants are 18-90 (.200) against him. Nunez is 5-15. Blach opened the season in the bullpen and has made five starts. His last outing was 7 innings of one-run ball and a win against the Dodgers. He only appeared in a handful of games last season, and none of the Cubs have faced him. Let's not forget the last time we saw the Giants: we were getting Medieval on their asses with a...

Chicago Cubs: Bringing back John Lackey makes sense for both sides

John Lackey’s initial two-year contract for the Chicago Cubs is up after this season. However, he may prove to be too valuable to let go. John Lackey’s tenure with the Chicago Cubs so far has been just as the team had hoped for when they signed him. The big righty has compiled a 15-11 record […] Chicago Cubs: Bringing back John Lackey makes sense for both sides - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Reds at Cubs, Game 1: Preview/Predictions Thread

Cincinnati Reds at Chicago Cubs 8:05 PM EDT Bronson Arroyo vs. John Lackey The Reds come off of a necessary off day to play the defending champion Cubs. The Reds are actually a game ahead of the Cubs right now in the standings, but are coming off of 3 straight losses on the West Coast. Bronson Arroyo gets the ball for Cincinnati, who looks like he’s settling in. This Bronson doesn’t look a whole lot different than the Bronson we saw a few years ago. Let’s hope we get the Cubs from a few years ago in this series instead of this year’s version. On the other side, John Lackey gets the...
