Anything you can do I can do better

A night after Derek Lee and Todd Walker both go deep twice, Ramirez took matters into his own hand and hit two of his own. The Cubs have now won 8-of-9 and are playing pretty good against bad teams. The real key is can they keep it up against the better ones. Mark Prior was not great tonight, but he was good enough to win and the Cubs look to take the series tomorrow with Kerry Wood heading to the mound.
I still think the Cubs are going to make more trade, but I could not tell you what it might be.
