GAME 151 IN-GAME DISCUSSION THREAD [PARACHAT] CHICAGO CUBS (74-76) @ MILWAUKEE BREWERS (73-76) MILLER PARK, 6:35 pm CDT, TV: WCIU, FSN
2 weeks left and every series is crucial from here on out. We're guaranteed to see some well-played baseball this week as the two teams battle it out for the crucial third spot in the NL central. Sure, history tells us that no one remembers who finishes second, but it's got nothing to say about third place. Throw in that Dusty is chasing the white whale named Mediocrity (better known as a .500 record) with Ned Yost's ship not even a boat length behind and we got the makings of some gripping baseball up the 294. The season series is on the line as well, the Brew Crew currently up 7-6.
Jerome Williams goes to the mound tonight, he's been living the life of luck his last 5 starts:
2-2, 2.35 ERA, 30.2 IP, 14K/11BB, 1 HR
Okay luck and keeping the ball in the ballpark, still think he has a lot to prove before I'm ready to pencil him in as a starter next year.
September baseball, it's fantastic.
