Don't faint, but the Cubs actually have a chance to win a series on the road against a good team, with a win tonight.

vs. NY -- vs. Cubs
Z's record is good enough on its face, but remember he didn't even win a game till May 10. Since then he's 10-1 with a 2.56 ERA, and he has won seven in a row.

It's another rematch day -- the Cubs and Z defeated Glavine at Wrigley Field on July 15.

Odd stat notes from today: for some reason, the Cubs (and Z) are much better at night than during the day; 22-26 at night, 16-34 in day games. Z has a 1.74 ERA in night games, best in the major leagues. Why this is so, I cannot say.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
