2 in a row

The Cubs have won 2 in a row and 4 of their last 5, which is important since they all have been division rivals. Greg Maddux goes out there today and tries to help the Cubs get the sweep in St. Louis which could then help them get closer to 4th place. I know 4th place isn't much, but the Cubs need to take baby steps if they plan on climbing up the ladder this year.

The Cardinals lost Albert Pujols yesterday with a "strained oblique muscle" for an undetermined amount of time, while you never cheer for an injury to a player, it might help the rest of the division catch up to the Cardinals if they can't overcome the lost offense that Pujols provides.

The last time up David Aardma looked awful and very timid on the mound, I must say that in the 14 inning game the other night verse the Cardinals, David was magnificent. He looked like the reliever that was advertised to the fans and Cubs last season when he was acquired. I know he is very young and will have some bumps in the road, but now with Scott Williamson probably headed to the DL, it is time for him to prove himself in more than one game.
