Rubber Match – Day Game v. Reds

The Cubs wasted Ted Lilly’s gem last night by not getting out of the gate. One run. On  a positive note, when the Cubs have lost, i has been these types of losses. (2-1, 3-2 et  al).

So we march forward today and seek to do what we have done Seven times since the All Star Break….win a series. If the Cubs manage to keep winning series, the rest will take care of itself.

Josh Fogg is going against Carlos Zambrano this afternoon….here is what the matchups look like

The Cubs hit Fogg well….and Zambrano strikes out the Reds….Simple, brief analysis.

After his last few outings, anything is possible for Zambrano…Let’s hope he uses this game to get his focus back, and return to the fist pumping adrenelin filled Big Z that we have all come to appreciate. I will be here during the game chatting, so stop by.
