1-2-3 first inning, and FINALLY the cubs don't score in the 1st inning. Good start, Marlins look ready to fight for their playoff lives today, and the crowd sounds like they are really into it.

GO FIGHTIN' FISH!!!

Beckett comes up and in on Sosa, and Ivan Rodríguez calms Sosa down. Pudge is a mindgamer.

Think Zambrano will come up and in next half-inning?

The Cubbies led baseball batters hit by pitch. They've got their messiah talking bragging about how he throws up and in.

Zambrano is having control trouble. If Florida doesn't capitalize soon, their prospects for winning this game are very poor.

Maybe we should hire Don "The Animal" Zimmer as our manager so that he can take Wood and Prior next time they throw at us.

How can anyone actually like this Cubs team? Between their racist, hypocritical manager, steroid-using, cork abusing tool in RF, and their other losers like Lofton, Simon, and Zambrano, this team is totally classless.

give me a break, this guy is playing his heart out.

i hate the cubs as much as the next guy, but i respect competence. which lofton has in no short supply.

love or hate baker, but he's done for the cubs in one year what manuel couldnt do for the sox in 7.

Damn straight. If he was throwing at Sosa, he would have aimed behind his head like Pedro did yesterday in Boston.

That pitcher who cracked Sosa's helmet last spring has done everyone a favor. Now the entire league knows where Shammy's weakness is. Who is surprised to learn it lies directly between his ears? LMAO!

Per Al Leiter, he thinks Pavano has had the hotter hand, so that's who he thinks will go vs. the Scrubs in the Urinal. Of course, anybody is available on an as-needed basis.

There's no way Pavano beats Prior but as was pointed out earlier him having to pitch Tuesday night means he can't go three games in the series.

That could be a major difference.

We've seen Pedro Martinez knocked around in the playoffs this year. If he's mortal then everyone else is too. Prior can be beaten.

He's due to be beaten, too.

Let's face it, Game 6 is the big game here. If the Fish can somehow, someway rise to the occassion and do something incredible, the momentum going into Game 7 would be incredible. Wood can be beaten, he's ripe for the pickings in Game 7 with the pressure of '84, '69, and the 58-yr World Series absence on the back of Wood. Wood folds in a heartbeat on Wednesday night if it goes that far. Hopefully Pavano can pitch the game of his life (if he gets the nod), and Prior somehow comes back to Earth. Fish need to score first on Tuesday night.

It's set up to be the biggest choke in the history of the franchise if it happens. Way bigger than '69 or '84.

Good work, Beckett. Loved the way you drilled down "deep" (i.e. 2 centimeters) into Sham-ME*'s fragile skull. Hopefully the Marlins starters will take today as a template for how to pitch the fat ****ing piece of **** Flubs batters.

Do I sense a shift in pressure/momentum? Perhaps I do. In any event, the Marlins could be setting up the Yankees for a relatively easy World Series matchup should the Flubs win, as they'll now have to cash Prior again and possibly Wood in game 7.

I think Pavano will be stellar on Tuesday and like i said on another thread... if they swtich Lee and Lowell on the line up we should get a lot more runs. with bases loaded and 2 outs Lee did nothing. all i could think was nnnoooo lowell was so close. Mike is a big RBI man and a much better clean up hitter than Lee right now. At least lee's D hasnt gone down. he is absolutely phenomenal at 1B but hasnt been clutch at all this series. He has the stuff to bring in runs he just has to find it again.

I agree, they need to switch Lowell and DLee in the lineup order, but they have to keep DLee in because he plays great d, had a heck of a play today, and he looks like he could bust out of his hitting funk at any given moment. And I think Pavano will be solid on tuesday as well, I just hope that's good enough to beat Prior....

yes D Lee is fan-f**king-tastic at 1B (anyone else thinking gold glove?) which is why i say switch instead of bench. i also believe he is going to explode out of slump with full force. when mike got injured Lee's HR average shot through the roof. which reminds me... Mike Lowell is god

Lowell has hit the game winning home runs in 2 games this series, if he does it 2 more times, he WILL be god lol. Are you guys going to try and resign Lowell or Rodriguez?? I really hope you guys try and keep this team together, they could overtake the Braves empire next year IMO.

Nah, don't worry about your humor. Trust me, i'm definitely used to that kind of humor lol. As for the fish....I think Pudge is going to stay, especially considering he says he wants to. I think the fish would have traded Lowell if they didn't think they could resign him. Either way, you have excellent young pitching, and can always put Cabrera at 3rd if Lowell leaves. And man, i'd take a huge "pay cut" and make 10 mill a year or whatever to live in Miami lol.

What's "slightly chilly" 70 degrees?? LOL! Miami is a great city, even though i've only been there once :(: One day, i'm moving down to miami, although i'll miss my white sox, and definitely chicago for that matter. :(: . Actually, Cabrera reminds me of Pujols. He can play several positions on defense, and he just kills the ball at the plate. Great young player, only 20 years old????

I think Conine will be a good replacement for DLee, but he's getting older, so I think you need to breed a permanent replacement in your minor league system, or sign one in free agency. But hey, we will trade you Paul Konerko for DLee if you want :D: .

Actually a lot of people around here don't want ozzie as our manager. But I would be very happy to have him. He seems like a mixture of a players manager who could teach and have his teams ready for every game. Plus he's a former white sox great :D: so that's always a plus.

Ozzie is great with the players. he's right in there with the others in the celebration pits (been a lot of those this season hehe) getting a chest full of cleats. He has picked up Cabrera and Pudge during many a celebration at third base. Very enthusiastic guy and he lifts their spirits during bad games (one of many reasons why the Marlins are the Come Back Kids)

That all sounds very encouraging if we were to get him as manager. I feel kinda bad taking him from you guys, but we need him big time. Plus, with your talent and McKeon as manager, I don't think losing Ozzie will hurt you a whole lot.

Like i said if we had to lose him to someone it should be the White Sox and plus i would be happy for him.
I think with McKeon and most of our current players we will dethrone Atlanta for the first time in what? 12 years now?
excelent *my burns voice*

Sorry for the delayed reply, my computer messed up. Well thanks for the kind words about the white sox, and yeah, you will dethrone the braves finally for sure next year I think. But hey, it's hard for me to have sympathy for the marlins since you WON A WORLD SERIES IN 1997 AND WE CAN'T WIN ONE IN 86 YEARS!!!! :)
