Victory over Milwaukee

Tuesday, June 28, 2005

These are the games you're not supposed to win. When the offense only musters four hits and two runs against the Brewers, but you hoist the win flag nonetheless, something has broken in your favor. Boxscore

Kudos to Carlos Zambrano who continues his rollercoaster season with an 8 inning shutout. He allowed only three hits and three walks while blanking the Brew Crew.

Kudos II: to Derrek Lee. He hit his 23rd home run of the year during the game. He's also within 60,000 votes of Albert Pujols in the all-star game. Voting ends at midnight eastern on June 30th. 2,400 * 25 votes = 60,000. So, if we could just get an extra 2400 Cubs fans to do their bit for D-Lee, we can still get him a starting spot in the All-Star Game.

Kudos III: to Jerry Hairston Jr, something I haven't done much this season. Hairston picked up just his 8th RBI of the season (in 175 AB) with a second inning single. Way to go Jerry.

Now go vote for the All-Star starting lineups. I just ask that you keep my guys D-Lee and A-Ram in mind.

Might want to re-think your title.

Good point. I'm an idiot... but you already knew that.
