EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT:
The Cubs go for a sweep and three wins a row tonight.
It's crazy to think about, but the Cubs have actually won two in a row with last night's dramatic win over the Rockies.
First off, Carlos in the pen is just crazy. The Cubs need to trade a starter and pick up some value. If they want to keep Gorzelanny, then they have to let Ted Lilly go.
As for Byrd, I love his hustle and his bat. He might want to work on the predictions. Hey, at least he is doing something.
Hendry, I just don't have enough strength to give a quality reponse to this question.
Aramis Ramirez - I was in bed when he hit the home run, but hey Clutchy might be returning.
Randy Wells - He worked out of trouble from what I saw in the first few innings, including two huge strikeouts with the bases loaded. Wells is the type of pitcher every team needs.
Derrek Lee - Another rough day for Lee. Maybe today will bit a little better.
John Grabow - Just when you thought he might be pitching better he goes and gets wild again. Grabow is the perfect example why Jim Hendry shouldn't be retained as a GM. These deals for bullpen arms have been terrible.
It's nice to be winning again. Maybe the Cubs can get on a serious roll heading into the Philly two-game series.
