Time for some Pie

While yesterday's 14 inning marathon wound being ultimately disappointing at the end, there was one bright spot. Felix Pie made his long-awaited big league debut yesterday. While only going 1 for 6, Pie did knock in the game-tying run with a double in the 5th. Even more impressive was his play in the field. It's refreshing to see a Cubs outfielder that is better than average on defense for a change.

If you haven't seen a replay of his game-saving throw to home, you really need to check it out (click the video link on that page). This is what a real center fielder looks like.
