(3-3, 5.83 ERA)

Against this guy

(5-0, 1.79 ERA)

Looks like my run as starter will be quite brief.

Go Bulls!

This doesn't look promising.

Cubs lose, less embarrassingly than yesterday.

Zambrano poised to get rocked again. How many first inning runs this time?

He escapes the first inning only allowing 3 runs.

I'll miss the first half of the game because I'm covering a soccer game but when I get back, I don't think I'll even bother tuning in.

By the way, if the time you're listing is central time, it should be 6 pm.

this is a [expletive] loss. Zambrano is the worst pitcher in the rotation right now and he's facing a good team. Seeing how the Cubs lose, I sometimes wonder why I bother be a fan. Cubs win dammit! We have the worst bullpen in the league.

I'd really like to believe a Zambrano miracle will occur such as scoreless first inning let alone, keeping the Cubs in game. However, the realist in me says Zambrano puts the Cubs in a 3 run hole (along with issuing 3 BB's) after the first.

Ok, I'll be the insane optimist here.

Zambrano comes out of his funk...flirts with a no-hitter through 5, ends up pitching 7 innings of shutout ball, pulled because of too many pitches, Cubs win 2-0.

DeRosa sounds a little banged up-he probably will get the day off tonight. If Lee does at well, this is probably the lineup:

Theriot
Murton or Floyd
Soriano
Ramirez
Ward
Barrett
Jones
Izturis

It could really be anything though. The main thing is that whatever left-handers are in there, Lou is going to try to split them, which helps figure out the lineup order a little bit easier.

There is really only one question about tonight's game.

Will Maine pitch a perfect game or merely a no-hitter?

Omar will be by with the numbers, but they don't look pretty

Soriano - 2/13 but both are HRs
Ramirez - 2/4

Ward and Theriot are 1/1 ;)

Anybody know the moneyline on this game? My guess is NYM -38,000. For all you non-gamblers that means if you want to bet the Mets to win, it costs $38,000 to make a $100 profit. I think it's a good bet.

i assume DeRosa won't start because of his wrist. they will be working with a very short bench with out DeRosa and Lee. i can't wait to see Marquis pinch hit. yay.

Since we have a short bench I am betting on a 15 inning game tonight.
