Cubs@Coors Field Round 2 8/04
Tonight is a game that proves to be more than the 2 teams in it. These 9 innings will change the Cubs season. A good game could give the Cubs a whole game lead on the closest team (the Padres.) But a loss could tie the Cubs with Giants and make it a 3 way race for the coveted 4th playoff spot. Almost more important is the effect that the unforgivingly hitters park will have on emotional Zambrono. If the Z-man gets bombed early as Wood experienced he likely will not be able to recover since his panties will be in to big of a bunch. If Zambrono can execute well, and get the groundballs that a normal "groundball pitcher" can get, it could provide a solid boost for CZ.
