Catchers: Soto; Kendall (2)

(Sorry Hank)

Infielders: DeRosa, Fontenot, Lee, Ramirez, Theriot, Ward, Cedeno (7)

You go with seven here because Ward, Theriot and DeRosa can all play OF. If you go with six Cedeno is the most expendable because Fontenot hits LH.

Outfielders: Floyd, Jones, Murton, Pie, Soriano (5)

(Pie over Monroe because we see how critical OF defense is in big games--Could change in NLCS)

Pitchers: Dempster, Eyre, Hart, Hill, Howry, Lilly, Marmol, Marquis, Wood, Wuertz, Zambrano


Trachsel did his job. There's no need for him to be on post-season roster. The last thing you need is a fifth starter who's not gonna start. Similar analysis for Marshall. Because you have to have Hart's electric stuff on the Roster, they both must sit. Perhaps a little bitter pill for Marshall but the objective is to win the five game series.

The Phils scare the poop out of me and that is the look ahead series.

I will tell you this , even if the Cubs get beat 1st round they played 4 games more than those poop butt Dead birds.

Year one of Lou ........that is good enough for me .

Cubs should invite Bartman to throw out the first ball Saturday and get that whiny crap behind them.

Not too many years ago, I played in a golf tournament in Calif. The director made the pairings. I was on the same cart as Steve Freaking Garvey! What the hell were we gonna talk about, Lee Arthur Smith or Stevie Senator's fifty-three illegitimate children? I woulda swapped him straight up for Bartman in a heartbeat.
