Greg Maddux (12-13), trying to win 15 or more games for the 18th consecutive season, will start on normal four days' rest Thursday at Milwaukee. He will start again Sept. 27 at home against Pittsburgh and the season finale Oct. 2 at Houston. No one will likely get skipped but some pitchers will go on five days rest and Glendon Rusch likely will have seven days off, Cubs pitching coach Larry Rothschild said.
Maddux will be a two-start pitcher for the final week of the regular season if he can win Sept. 22 and 27. "He deserves it," Rothschild said of Maddux. "It's significant in a lot of ways." If Maddux loses one of those two starts, however, Rothschild said Maddux might not make the extra start.
Will this give him extra motivation to win these games?
He hasnt been spectacular vs MIL (6 or 7 ERA I beleive).
Back against the wall for the professor. He's always been good to my fantasy teams, and has always seemed like a good guy, so here's hoping he reaches those 15 wins yet again!
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
I kept trying to trade for the guy during the 1st half of the season. He really hasn't performed up to expectations still so I'm glad I didn't get him. But it's nice to see a Maddux tradition continue for the 18th time.
Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position
Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs
Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position
