For The Series Win

Poor Juan Mateo is scouring up memories of Sergio Mitre from last year when he had to face Clemens and Halladay , although not in back-to-back starts. Of course Mitre went out and threw two of the best games he'll probably ever pitch. I'm all for a repeat. Cubs are only a half game behind the Nationals in the wild card race. Keep the hope alive....or don't. Go Cubs! GAME ONE HUNDRED-TWENTY-THREE IN-GAME DISCUSSION THREAD [PARACHAT] ST.

Dick Pole: So here are the numbers against Carpenter, looks like Nevin has had all sorts of problems against him.
Dick Pole: Oh yeah and Neifi is one of the worst hitters to ever play baseball.
Dick Pole: Um, Dusty, wake up man.
Dusty: (Waking up) Dude, here's the lineup for today, my grandma once told me that you've got to breathe, eat right and always start the gnome-like shorstop.
Dick Pole: What?
Dusty: All I know is that Nevin is due for a hit.
Dick Pole: (under breath) All I know is that you're an idiot.
Slap a first basemen's glove on Z for god's sake or something.
So what's up with Barrett?
