GameCast: Rockies vs. Cubs

Cubs vs. RocksJason Marquis (1-0, 2.57 ERA) Rich Harden (0-0, 1.50 ERA)
Story-lines
Jason Marquis returns to Wrigley Field with REVENGE! on his mind.  He squares off against the best 4th starter in baseball, Rich Harden, who's coming off of a 6 inning 10 strikeout effort.

Lou Piniella continues to tinker.  In Lou's world, if you're batting .125 then you're the ideal cleanup hitter because that's exactly where Derrek Lee is.  I'm not really sure why.

Geovany Soto returns to the lineup today as well. 

Who's Hot
Everybody but Lee (.138) Soto (.143) and Aaron Miles (.143), who's starting second today for the Cubs.

Who's Not
See above.

Update
This is what I get for forgetting to post.  Harden's not on his B Game today.  He's struck out 6 in 2.1 innings of work, but has surrendered a homerun to Seth Smith and a 2-run single to Jason Marquis.

Before you panic over the 1-hitter de Suck is tossing, keep in mind ... it's Jason Marquis.  I doubt the Cubs are out of it yet.
