The Cubs are doomed tonight. Everyone knows they can't hit lefthanders, and Moyer beat them last year right after the Phillies acquired him in late August (there! See? You can acquire useful players after July 31). Furthermore, Moyer's father-in-law is a well-known former college basketball coach and current broadcaster and he's also been known to rescue small children who accidentally fall into lakes and rivers.
Other than that, it's a warm, humid late-summer day in Chicago and the Cubs are within one game of first place and one-half game of the wild-card lead. Let's go get one of them tonight!

Tempus fugit, as the ancient Romans might have said (and probably did, often).
Rich Hill is 0-2, 5.75 in two career starts vs. the Phillies. And he has to face Tadahito Iguchi, who is 3-for-5 with 2 HR and 6 RBI lifetime against him. Like I said, we're doomed.
This game is an all-cable, EI, Mediacenter extravaganza. Enjoy.
