    All series talk goes in here. DO NOT GIVE PLAY-BY-PLAY! If you need PBP try Yahoo, ESPN, or Sportsline.


    6-11 Woody Williams, RHP (2-8, 5.79) vs. Carlos Zambrano, RHP (6-5, 5.38) 7:05 on FSN

    Here's hoping that Carlos Zambrano throws the first pitch at Michael Barrett's head.

    I think he will.

    Because Barrett is the catcher.

    hopefully barrett can turn our season around. I think he's the sparkplug we need.

    Barrett's a big guy. His head is easily out of the strikezone high.

    Wow, so he is almost as tall as the batters when he is crouching down.

    I just want to see a sweep, even if it is a one game sweep. :p

    If Roy was pitching, I'd agree.

    That would make it that much more fun if Zambrano gunned a ball into his own dugout at Barrett.

    zambrano has been bad at wrigley. But he's also been horrendous with Barrett catching... so today we see which one has a bigger effect.

    I'm afraid it'll be the Barrett effect, and we'll get stomped by him..

    Not if the Astros show enough urgency to overcome it. A sense of urgency can hide many flaws.

    Our offense can be so anemic at times. If he gives up 2 runs in seven against us, is he pitching better or do we just honestly hit that poorly? I think we will call tonight's masterpiece the Astros effect as Zambrano gives up just one run.

    Thank God we are going to win 2-1 in the 10th on a Carlos Lee Home Run!
