maybe volstad will step up to the challenge and break out of his 5th inning 5 runs habit.

Hope you're right lahairfan. ------ and by that I mean he won't be setting any new bad habits! ----- like 6 innings and a 9 run habit! Now it could be that The Volster's saving grace might be his bat. He could get lucky and hit his way into staying in, Stay tuned.

So far The Volster is not lighting-up the opposition, but neither are they pulling his chain. Lets hope the Cubs bats can meet the ball enough to do some damage----like score some runs!

Damn. I hope Len&Bob have a replay of that called 3rd strike by the ump on Castro. It sure looked too outside to have been a strike! Hope they show a replay. Damn.

I'm not a fan of The Volster, but he has---and is doing---a very nice job tonight. Tonight his teammates are the drag, not The volster. One of the Cubs has to deliver to tie this one up. And......of course win it IF they can!!!!!
