Cubs Lose Two Straight, Welcome a new rookie

So school work and illness has made the Cubs contingent of TCB unable to post the past few days. The Sox contingent finds himself employed and with less free time. Luckily my school work is done and its time to blog.

Quick summary of the last two days. Rich Harden- one bad start, Cubs fans get karma for chanting at Marquis, offense sucks. Adam Wainwright-struggling, Sean Marshall- respectable, Umpire- AWFUL, Milton Bradley-awesome, offense still sucks.

Today the Cubs try to even the series with the Cardinals sending Carlos Big Z El Toro Zambrano against rookie starter P.J. Walters. Walters is making his first career start which spells doom for the Cubs.

Big Z has been pretty good this year, and I would expect that he is able to toss 7 innings today without much problem if he can keep his head on. Just throw some strikes and get guys to hit the ball on the ground.

Walters is exactly the kind of guy who in the past has come up and just shut down the Cubs. Hopefully the team can remain patient and take walks. Put this guy under pressure and then GET THE BIG HIT.

No Milton for one more day, which means we have Hoffpauir in RF and hitting fourth.

I think Cubs lose 5-1, but I hope I am wrong.
