It’s less then 15 minutes before the Cubs and Marlins square off in game 3, and the Cubs chances sit right now with Kerry Wood. He’s been phenomonal so far, as has Prior, and you could be looking at two teammates who, from here on our, compete for the Cy Young like Curt Schilling and Randy Johnson have the past few years. If it goes to game 7, Wood will also get the call.
The Marlins remind me a lot like Anaheim last year. For whatever reason (and I’m sure Marlin fans would resent this) they seem to win, despite having an unspectacular lineup, and an only good but young rotation, they took out the Giants, who I felt were going to win it, and have whittled things with the Cubs down to a 5 game series.
And hopefully the first two innings of yesterdays game don’t come back to haunt the Red Sox. How you get seven men on base, and are only able to score one run is pretty baffling. Maybe we should be giving Andy Pettitte more kudos then he’s gotten.
I’m rooting for the Cubs. I predicted in March that Kerry Wood would win the Cy Young, and was wrong at least as far as which Cub would win the Cy Young. Wood and Prior are exciting, and I’d love to see these two bright young stars shine and bring home a championship most Cub’s fans have never known.
