Honestly, I don't have a lot to say about this game. The Cubs are 21 games out of first place and have lost six of the seven games played at Miller Park so far this year, being outscored 39-20.
So instead, why not check out Derrek Lee's Chicago condo, which is now on the market:
Through a bank trust, Lee and his wife paid $787,500 in mid-2004 to buy the eight-room condo unit from the developer of the 16-story building, which was built in 2003. Features in the 12th-floor unit include 3 1/2 baths, two fireplaces, hardwood floors throughout, three private terraces and a master suite with custom walk-in closets and spa bathroom.
The article says the real estate agent is Julie Bouchard. Here is Bouchard's only listing at Realtor.com. I'm not 100% sure that's the unit -- but if it is, it looks really nice. If you can't afford it, just check out the photos.

Ryan Dempster has made two starts against the Brewers this year. The one at Wrigley Field was excellent. The one in Milwaukee was slightly less so, but still decent, even though the Cubs lost the game. Current Brewers are hitting just .226 (56-for-148) against him and he's even held Ryan Braun (.227) and Prince Fielder (.244) down pretty well. Maybe the Cubs have a shot tonight.
The Cubs hit Yovani Gallardo pretty well on April 10 at Miller Park, but the Brewers won anyway. At Wrigley Field on June 14, Gallardo shut down the Cubs for seven innings, but the Cubs won anyway. In short, who knows? Geovany Soto is 5-for-18 vs. Gallardo with two home runs.
