Astros @ Cubs Game Thread

Game 162 is here and it features the worst two teams in baseball for the third consecutive day. So far the worst team has beaten the only slightly less worse team twice in a row. The Cubs are trying to avoid the embarrassing sweep at the hands of the mighty Astros. To do so, the Cubs are sending out this lineup:

LF Tony Campana
2B Adrian Cardenas
SS Starlin Castro
1B Bryan LaHair
RF Dave Sappelt
3B Josh Vitters
CF Brett Jackkkson
C Something Recker
P Travis Wood

You can see how bright the future is in Chicago with this very deep lineup. I mean, consider this: the 8th hitter is probably as good as the leadoff hitter. You aren't going to find many MLB lineups in which that is true. Up and down the lineup you have guys who are roughly equal on offense with an exception or two. It does not get any better than this. This is what October baseball is about.
