Well, that was a hat-tipper. Nothing you can do with a game like that except tip your hat to the Astros and say “Good game”. Two swings accounted for all the scoring from both sides and the Astros simply didn’t walk enough Cubs. Good game; we’ll get you tomorrow.

Dempster just gave up a grand slam. He gave a couple of walks and then paid the price. I guess since Marmol took a loss a few days ago anything is possible. But that’s why you don’t walk people. I’m just glad Miguel Tejada didn’t hit it; I hate that steroid user.

The Cubs are up 5-2 and it’s now the 8th inning. Lieber pitched in “Howry’s spot” and now Wuertz is in “Marmol’s spot”. This is just stupid.
Surprise, surprise. A lead-off hit. Marmol wouldn’t give that up. I know he’s been in the past two consecutive games but he’s what, 24? I think he can handle three days in a row. Ooooh yeah.
MARMOL is up now. You don’t want to mess with Marmol. A botched hit and run works out for the Astros–Bourne just flat out stole it. I don’t know if he’d been out on a good throw; he is really, really fast. Ugh, another hit and now runners on the corners with no outs. Why didn’t you put in MARMOL!!!
Ok, here comes Marmol. Why didn’t you bring him in two batters ago? Another stolen base…and here comes Lou to argue. That man has a gut. He should mandate as part of his next contract that there will be no profile shots of him. The replay shows Matsui was out but whatever. Two pitches; one out for MARMOL. Fear MARMOL. Berman vs. Marmol. This should be good. Damn, Marmol has gotten him to 1-2 and Berkman has been WAAAAY late on his swings. 2-2. Exciting. Now it’s 3-2. K’D!!! TAKE THAT BERKMAN. Oh Marmol, you are just stupid–CRAZY AWESOME STUPID. Did anyone NOT see that slider coming? Except Berkman? Hah!
Whoa, Marmol almost just took off Carlos Lee’s head. Oh man, it’s 3-0 now; it should be 2-1. Terrible call. Wow, now it’s 3-1 and while it should be that last pitch was too low. And a weak groundout to third. FEAR MARMOL!
Wow. Jim Edmonds just made a catch that made me hate him .0000001% less. Nice catch old man on the Houston Hump.
