Goatriders of the Apocalypse

Gamecast: June 26th vs. White Sox

Randy Wells (1-3, 2.57 ERA) vs. Jose Contreras (2-6, 5.23 ERA)

Story Lines

Here we go again. The Cubs win four in a row, and follow that up with four straight losses. During that time, the Cubs have only lost 1 game in the standings so how. IF there is any saving grace it is that the entire NL Central is pretty bad right now.

The Cubs travel to "The Cell" this afternoon for a chance at redemption, among other things. I don't have much to say thanks to a paper I have due. I never thought going back to Grad School would take so much time.

Randy Wells picked up a win in his last start, so maybe he can find a way to win two in a row.

Who's Hot

Jake Fox - I say Fox stays in the lineup for a few days. Just a hunch, but he can hit.

Who's Improving

Kosuke Fukudome, Alfonso Soriano - Both of the slump guys got two hits yesterday. Maybe they can find two more hits today.

Who's Not

Milton Bradley - Lou's finally had enough and has benched Milton for a few days.

Conclusions

The Cubs are in bad need of winning streak, so why not today?
