Goatriders of the Apocalypse

Gamecast: October 2nd vs. Diamondbacks - Three Games Left Edition

Billy Buckner (3-6, 6.59 ERA) vs. Tom Gorzelanny (7-2, 4.20 ERA)

Story Lines

This is not going to be long and neither is the reminder of the season. The Cubs caught a break last night when the sky opened and washed away another fantasic preformance.

All kidding aside, the Cubs and D-Backs are playing for nothing. It will be interesting to see how Gorzelanny pitches as he tries to get a rotation spot for next season.

Who's Hot

Jim Tracy - Nothing like taking over a job in June and turning it into gold. The Rockies clinch a playoff spot, and it will be good for Tracy's pocketbooks next year.

Who's Not

Matt Diaz - Anybody see the great baserunning from Matt the other night? Ouch! That is a great way to lose a game. Maybe the Cubs can figure out something like that.

Conclusions

Enjoy your weekend and get ready for an interesting football weekend.
