15-7: All Good Things Must Come to An End

The Cubs’ winning streak came to an end last night at the hands of the Rockies. Aaron Cook pitched a pretty good game and the resilient Rockies made it stand up. Not to fear, the Cubs are off to the nation’s capital next, where hopefully the Nationals’ woes will continue. The Cubs will send Ryan Dempster to the hill in pursuit of his fourth win of the year. He’ll square of against Odalis Perez, who’s 0-3 on the season. I’m looking forward to getting another look at the Nationals’ new ballpark, which looked pretty spiffy in the opening day game televised by ESPN. The Nationals still suck as bad as they did when they were the Expos, but hopefully they’re moving in the right direction. I think it would be great to have a healthy franchise in the nation’s capital. I still think they should have called the team the Senators, but what can you do? They don’t play in our division, so here’s hoping they get really good really quick. After we leave town of course!

In ex-Cubs news, Michael Barrett still hasn't gotten over the elbow injury he sustained after an all night goat-porn orgy. And apparently Mark Prior has suffered a setback in his rehab that the Padres aren't calling a setback. He's supposed to start throwing again soon. No word if it involves real or simulated baseballs. Or balls of any kind for that matter. The only person paid more to do nothing is Paris Hilton and even she has bigger cojones than Prior.

BallHype: hype it up!
