It's time for the big boys to take control

35 games to go, 1.5 game lead and a mediocre (at best) division.

To date, they have milked everything they can out of DeRosa, Theriot, most of the starters, the pen and even ole Jaque Jones the last six weeks.  The time has come, for Lee, Ramirez, Soriano and Zambrano, to take turns putting this team on their backs the next 30 games and putting this thing to rest.  The Cards smell blood, and I don't care how bad they look on paper, LaRussa will get everything he can out of that crew for the duration.

If me math is correct, the Cubs have about $400 million committed to these guys, and the time has come for a little "ROI"
