Notes: due to the balanced schedule, it sometimes seems as if the Cubs never see certain teams. It has been ten days short of a full year (August 21, 2005) since the Cubs last played the Rockies. 152 games have gone by since then; the Cubs are 67-85 in those games, and eight Cubs who played in the last Cubs-Rockies game, a 9-7 loss, are no longer with the team (Greg Maddux, Jose Macias, Corey Patterson, Jeromy Burnitz, Nomar Garciaparra, Todd Walker, Jerry Hairston and Scott Williamson) and a ninth, Derrek Lee, is currently on the DL.

With Juan Mateo having gone two innings yesterday, he won't be available to start tomorrow. No roster move has been announced, but this Sun-Times preview has Angel Guzman listed as tomorrow's starter.
