If you don't have anything nice to say ...

Monday: Rockies 11, Cubs 5

A 4-6 road trip.

Gorzelanny goes down in the 2nd inning.

Ramirez might have to go on the DL.

The Phillies are coming to town.

The Cubs are three games back in the division and the Wild Card.

So, yeah, there aren't a whole lot of positives to talk about today.

Let's look forward: The Cubs will have a chance to help Randy Wells' Rookie of the Year chances if they can beat up on J.A. Happ tonight. Tomorrow, Pedro Martinez will make his first start of the year, and it'd be nice to win that one with last year's AL Cy Young Award winner, Cliff Lee, taking the mound on Thursday.

The Cubs will be trying to build on their stellar 33-19 home record, and things start to look a little brighter after Philadelphia with the Pirates and Padres on the schedule. The Cardinals schedule is very weak in August, but heats up in September. If the Cubs can stay close over the next couple weeks, perhaps they can get healthy in September and really make a run.
