Making up for being late with the previous two Gameday Threads, by being really early with this one - even though it looks to be an 11:20 am start, which is a relatively civilized hour. We're continuing our streak of dodging staff aces: after missing Peavy and Sheets, we don't have to face Zambrano this series, and Derrek Lee has also missed all the games, because he's suspended. Be good to get the win and take the series: we haven't won one on the road since we swept Baltimore five weeks ago. That was also the last time the Cubs dropped a series at home, so we would end both streaks with victory.
