Chicago Pirates?

With another trade between the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates, the Cubs have acquired another left handed bat in Randall Simon. After the Dodgers evend the series 1-1 news came of the trade. This is the third Pirate that the Cubs have acquired this season. Since Hee Chop is not hitting well, hopefully this trade is the answer to another good bat.

Being a half game back we need a win tomorrow to make sure we can keep ground and hopefully be back in first by the end of the day. Zambrano is on the mound so maybe he'll keep up the magic he has been showing lately and we can win this series before we play St. Louis.
