Now that the team is back home maybe we'll get an update on Chris Carpenter.

I had the most vivid dream last night. Have you ever woke up from a dream where you just inherited mega millions or had an encounter with a beautiful blonde bombshell.....and then you're as mad as heck because you just figured out the event never occurred? My dream last night of Carlos Marmol starting all 4 of these games for the cubs in this series fits right in.

Travis Wood is a real load; teams are only batting .191 against him.  Shelby better be very sharp or I don't like the looks of this game.

He's pretty much looked "nasty" all year, Grays.....unfortunately for Marmol, he's looked that way to cubbie fans. His 9th inning meltdown vs the Metropolitans yesterday was vintage Marmol.

Wood could actually be the lone cub representative in this year's All-Star game. His Achilles heel in the past has been giving up the long ball, but so far this year he's pretty much keeping the ball in the yard. And speaking of "long ball", be careful pitching to this fellow as he gets good "wood" on the ball himself. He's in the same league as what Zambrano used to be at the plate.

Sort of like if there is a major league named "Freese", he always plays first base, it seems like if the guy is named "Wood", he's a pitcher.

First we had Smoky Joe Wood, who actually was an early day Rick Ankiel as he hurt his arm, and resurfaced a few years later as an outfielder.

Then we Wilbur Wood, most notably with the White Sox in the '70s. The Cubs had Kerry Wood hurling for a few years, and now Travis Wood.

Now I have some baseball cards of Jake Wood, a second baseman for the Tigers in the '60s. So he broke the mold. But I bet he pitching in little league!

I assume you mean third base and are referring to Gene Freese, no relation to David.

SSDD...more t-storms in stl

Im wondering if this one gets played...Radar (pay attention rat) shows that everything should be clear by game time or at least a short delay after, but The field is going to be soup.

I was thinking it's a given that if a pitcher is named Wood, he can swing the bat.  Both Travis and Kerry have/had some pop.

I don't think they're going to get this one in.  Is this for real?

If that's for real, that's quite the storm.  We've had some thunder, lightning, wind, and a little rain here in SW Indiana over the last hour or two but nothing major.

Anybody on the scene at Busch?

The pot is indeed on, Grays. I'm ready and raring to go when duty calls. I'm not buying those phony weather reports coming out of St.Louis. Never fear gang....we should be playing ball tonight. My dad is over for dinner tonight. I got pretty bored in this rain delay about 30 minutes ago so I asked dear ol' dad if he'd like to have a catch. He pretty much told me to take a flying ****.
