Cubs to Milwaukee, hope to exploit home field advantage

  • Mon. 7:05 CT: Greg Maddux - Tomo Ohka
  • Tues. 7:05 CT: Jerome Williams - Victor Santos
  • Wed. 7:05 CT: Carlos Zambrano - Doug Davis
  • Thur. 1:05 CT: Glendon Rusch - Ben Sheets
After a disappointing road trip to Yankee Stadium, the Cubs are happy to return to Miller Park where they will have the home crowd behind them.

Just how good is Derrek Lee?

I know I keep repeating the same question on this blog, but it still fascinates me. It seems like the longer the season goes on D-Lee just continues to play baseball about as well as humanly possible. He is now batting .390 with 20 HRs 60 RBIs, and 10 stolen bases. Here's some interesting notes from about his latest accomplishment: 100 hits in 68 games.

The Cubs first baseman now has 100 hits in 68 games. It's the fastest a Cubs player has reached 100 hits, dating back to 1960. Records before that year are incomplete. Bill Madlock held the previous team mark of 70 games, set in 1975. Last year, Lee collected his 100th hit on July 18 in his 90th game.

Ichiro Suzuki and Joe DiMaggio hold the Major League record, totaling 100 hits in 61 games.

guess who's back...
