Dodger Series HUGE for Cubbies this week

cubs.jpg

Get ready for a WILD ride this week Cubs fans.  This Dodger’s series is HUGE for the Cubs.  The Cubs salvaged the final two games of the Astro’s series after dumping the first 6-1 to Houston.  The Cubs are now 5 games over .500, but Milwaukee and the Cardinals have both improved to above .500 records now as well. NOTE:  I can’t believe I wrote that division contenders are BARELY above .500 in September!  The central is awesome.

ZAMBRANO due for good startZ needs a good start, period.  He’s fallen to 14-11 with a 4.06 ERA.  These numbers are reflective of a fairly crappy August performance for Z who failed to win in the entire month. 

The Dodgers are starting Esteban Loaiza after claiming him off waivers in a deal with Oakland.   This will be Loaiza’s third start of the season, and his first with the Dodgers.

The Dodgers are in contention for their division, and they’ll make every attempt to win these four games against the Cubs.  However, the Cubs need to win this series in order to stay ahead of the surging Cardinals and resurgent Brewers.

Put on your seat-belts Cubs fans!!!!

    Another not so good day for the Cubbies….. what’s going on?!?!?!

  4. Dude we are SUCKING when they need to be taking the lead of this division.

    I figure if they want it, they’ll step it up. They look like shit and couldn’t score a run if the now 1/2 game lead depended on it….
