Gamecast (August 15, 2010) Cubs @ Cardinals

Yeah, Cubs stink but amazingly they won a one run game yesterday! Who knew they could do that? The Cubs are currently 14-29 in one run games this year and theres no rhyme or reason to it. They are easily the worst team in baseball in these games and just snapped an 8 game losing streak in one run games! Holy crap!

Dempster vs Lohse today. The Cubs should win this game and take 2 out of 3 from the Cardinals again. Who knew that it's the Cardinals that the Cubs can beat! I guess that's a good thing.

Here's the important thing, though: Starlin is hitting .319 in 347 plate appearances. 366 plate appearances are currently needed to qualify for the batting title. Joey Votto and Carlos Gonzalez are tied for the NL lead in batting average at .322. Starlin could win a batting title. He is giving me, at least, a reason to watch this team.

So Go Cubs! and most of all Go Starlin!

Let the record show

It is the first time all year someone on here says "the Cubs should win" and they actually did
