Looks like a rain delay.... they say the grounds crew is about to put the tarp on the field.

Chico is 0-4 with a 6.04 ERA
His BAA is .312

Looks like if they can get this one in, and the original starters get to go tonight, we have a GOOD chance at a W

some game notes:

With 15 wins in April and four games still to play this month, the Cubs are one victory shy of matching their most wins in this month in franchise history … Chicago posted a franchise-best 16 wins in April of 1969 … before 2008, the Cubs had previously won at least 15 games in April just three times: 2003, 2001 and 1969.

Derrek Lee has seven home runs this month, one shy of tying the Cubs all-time home run record for April … Sammy Sosa (2000 and 2002) and Lee Walls (1958) each recorded eight home runs in this particular calendar month … Lee hit seven home runs in April of 2005.


Geovany Soto has 14 RBI this month to become the second Cub rookie since 1956 to drive in at least 14 runs in March/April … Hee-Seop Choi had 14 RBI in the first month of 2003.

The Cubs are scheduled to face left-handed starters in all three games this series continuing with Matt Chico tonight … overall, the Cubs will have faced four lefthanders in the five games this trip … including the four lefthanders the Cubs faced on their first road trip, the Cubs will have faced eight southpaws in their first 11 road games this season … the Cubs have faced just two lefties in their 14 home games thus far.
The Cubs are 6-2 thus far against left-handed starters in 2008 …in 2007, the Cubs faced left-handed starters in just 43 contests, the fewest among any N.L. club, and posted a 19-24 against southpaws.

The Cubs are 13-0 when scoring at least four runs this season … the Cubs have won their first 13 games when scoring four runs or more for the first time since 1970 (13-0) … the Cubs last won more than their first 13 games when scoring four or more runs to begin a season in 1909, when they won their first 19 such contests.

Despite losses in their last two games, the Cubs are off to their best start since posting a 15-8 record in 1995 … in fact, the Cubs have now started 15-7 (or better) for just the fifth time in more than 70 years (1995, 1985, 1975, 1969) … the Cubs have not started a season 16-8 since 1995.
The Cubs are 15-8 this year after posting a 10-13 mark through 23 games in 2007 (10-14 through 24).


Including a five-game winning streak from April 5-10 and a six-game run from April 18-23, the Cubs posted a pair of five-game winning streaks (or more) within the month of April for the first time in the franchise’s 133-season history.

The Cubs last night christened their 111th ballpark with a 5-3 setback and are now 60-50 with one tie in their ballpark debuts … incidentally, the Cubs fell by a final score of 7-0 in their May 27, 1886 Swampoodle Grounds debut.

The Cubs have played five extra-inning games before the end of April for the first time since 2000, when they reached five extra-inning games on April 29.

The Cubs have won their last four extra-inning contests, all of which have been played on the road … the Cubs have won five extra-inning road games in a season only four times in franchise history (in 2004, 1978, 1955 and 1889).

Lou Piniella also reached a pair of milestones when the Cubs won their 10,000th game on Wednesday in Colorado, as the win was his 100th as manager of the Cubs … Piniella matched Joe McCarthy (1926-30) as the franchise’s 10th-fastest manager to 100 wins in club history, as Piniella and McCarthy reached their 100th wins as a Cub in their 183rd games at the helm.

Additionally, Wednesday’s victory was Piniella’s 1,619th career victory to tie Ralph Houk for 14th on the all-time managerial win list.
Piniella now has 100 wins with five different clubs (New York, Cincinnati, Seattle, Tampa Bay and Chicago) … he becomes just the fourth manager in baseball history to accomplish the feat, joining Dick Williams (six clubs), Chuck Dressen (five clubs) and John McNamara (five clubs).
ALL-TIME MANAGERIAL WIN LEADERS
Rank Manager.......................Wins
13. Bill McKechnie..............1,965
14. Lou Piniella.............1,619
Ralph Houk..................1,619
