Come on, Paul Maholm. Twirl that soft-tossing magic again...

I'm ready for the Cubs to post 7+ runs again but it looks like the wind is going to be blowing in.
Unfortunately, Maholm has been lit up by Uggla, Ross and Prado--we're going to need to get some runs on the board somehow.

Soriano has been awful against Hudson (and not great against anyone else this year), so I don't mind seeing him sit. Meanwhile, lefties have crushed Hudson this year and for his career LH batters have higher walk rates while being less likely to strikeout--all good things for our lineup today.

Only if they're below market value and coming off down years.
