Finally something good

I havnt posted for a while because i was tired of posting negative things all the time. The Cubs have been very frustrating but today was a nice feeling victory. After watching them through the first 7 innings i was thinking here we go again. But Lee, and Soto's home runs had me on my feet and then Sorianos game winning rbi single had me jumping up and down along with every other cubs fan in the country. I have noticed that Soto has taken some better swings this past month, and Milton Bradley's average has climbed to over .240 and Derek's hitting streak is at 14 or 15 games. So hopefully this was a sign of things to come. I have been hearing rumors of the Cubs signing Pedro Martinez and a lot of people arnt for it because we are struggling on offense not pitching, but i actualy think it would be a good move. The objective of signing him would not be for him to put up amazing numbers but maybe to make room for pitchers to be traded, Randy Wells could be trade bait. He would also provide a good clube house presence as a veteran player and might be able to put this team back together and the rest of the staff could learn things from him. Anyways im going to the Reds v.s White Sox game tommorow at Great American Ballpark and i wont be able to post till late tommorow night so see you then.

Cubs dominating Astros

So far this season the Cubs are 6-2 against the Astros while only being 2 games over .500 against the entire division. They really have the stros number right now. Last night Ted Lilly got his 6th straight win against the Astros shutting them down in 6 2/3 innings. It was also nice to see the offense come out last night. Everbody was hitting except for Theriot, and Bradley. Fontenot went 4-5 with a homer, Derek lee went 2-3 with 3 walks, Soto went 3-4. Even Andres Blanco had a double and i think he had a single to. They were on a role last night and they improved to 29-26 and are only 2 1/2 games out of first and tied for second with the Cards and Reds. Hopefully they can continue to gain ground on the Brewers. Zambrano and Dempster will finish up this series. Zambrano ptiches tonight against Wandy Rodriquez who had been hot until everyone figured out how to hit against him. Hopefully Zambrano will pitch like he did in his last start and the offense can continue it's recent success.
