I'm going to need more cowbell...and another starter

Great game at the old ballpark today.   Electric atmosphere and one of the most satisfying wins in a long time.   Doesn't matter that it came against a wretched ballclub in Colorado.   Anyway, the lackluster performance of Ted Lilly in 2008 convinces me more than ever that we MUST acquire a primetime starting pitcher if this team is going to make it to the promised land.   Lilly has devolved into left-handed version of Jason Marquis.   Hopefully he can get it going.  

I like Dempster.   But I'm not going to be seduced into thinking he can keep pitching like a bonafide # 2.   I also like the promise of Gallagher.   But right now thinking of him as anything more than a # 5 type starter is a mistake.   So basically we are left with ace Zambrano, Dempster and three # 5 pitchers in Lilly, Marquis and Gallagher.  

Jim Hendry, get this team Rich Harden.   Trade whatever it takes to get him because THIS is the season that is our best chance in 100 years to win a bloody friggin World Series!!!!!
