Goatriders of the Apocalypse

Gameccast: October 1st vs. Pirates

Pat Maholm (8-9,4.44 ERA) vs. Jeff Samardzija (1-3, 7.53 ERA) 
Story Lines

The official Wait until 2010 is underway, and I can't wait for it, because I'm sick of the 2009 bunch (except Derrek Lee). 

The Cubs looked terrible yesterday, but they get one more chance against the Pirates today. 

The Cubs are going to look at Jeff Samardzija one more time tonight. I would suspect he will get an extended look next spring, since the Cubs probably are not going to bring back Rich Harden. 

Who's Hot

Hopefully, the Cubs in 2010 

Who's Not

Kevin Gregg's rib - Looks like he's been pitching hurt for a little while.  

Conclusions

Enjoy the last couple games of 2009. I have a feeling the Cubs will make another run next year.
