I watched the game last night. I was disappointed, but I started to think about if the Cubs really deserved to win anyway. A few of the runs they did get were due to poor fielding on the part of the Expos. So, it’s hard to say we should have won, but it is definitely a game we COULD have won.

I think Maddux will step up for us tonight and get us the solid pitching we need. After using practically our entire pitching staff last night, we could use a nice 8 inning performance. There really isn’t much more to say. This is crunch time. It’s up to the Cubs to rise to the occasion like every other team is.
