The Gist: Sweep Edition

Fly the white flag, bitches.

Cubs win 2-1. Sure the weather was cold during this series, but the Cubs pitching was lights out. Again, this game looked like the early score would hold up, with Derek Lowe on his game and the Cubs bats sleeping. But just like last night's game, it came down to one inning. This time it was the 9th. As soon as Dodger closer Takashi Saito threw 2 pitches to Ryan Theriot, you knew that not only did he not have his best stuff, but that he must have misplaced his stuff and accidentally brought Jason Marquis' stuff to the mound with him. Saito got out of the inning only giving up one run, but after the 9th, you just knew that the Cubs would pull this one out. The Dodgers had used their two best relievers up already and had to turn to Chan Ho "I Used To Be Good In 2000" Park.

Game Over.

Cubs Sweep.

Bring on the Rockies.

Quick question: How the hell are the Cardinals only a game and a half behind us? How the hell is Houston only 2.5 back? Can someone knock on their doors and remind them that they're terrible?
