It seems like Silva is in no way, shape or form the pitcher he was when he was with Seattle. It seems like the trade with Seattle to get him (sending disgruntled Milton Bradley to the Mariners) has worked out (so far) for the Cubs. Silva went six innings, only giving up one run.

And the offense woke up and scored runs when it looked like the bullpen was going to blow up yet again. Sean Marshall, who started out like gangbusters, has been less than stellar lately. Justin Berg came in to shut the Mets down. And Marmol pitched a 1-2-3 9th inning.

Soriano, Soto, Byrd and Colvin all had good games. Here's hoping, that with a day off today, Aramis Ramirez can get back into the swing of things also. It would be awesome to see this team all hitting at one time.

Wishful thinking!!!!
