Cubs in, Reds out
All right, can someone tell the Astros that they can stop playing in "Hey Roger, look how bad we are without you, please please come back and pitch for us" mode now? Craig Biggio's 625th career double was about the only good thing to come from weekend sweep by the visiting Reds. The Cubs visit for three games beginning tonight with Carlos Zambrano starting the series. Zambrano plunked Biggio on May 31, 2003 and August 12, 2003.
On June 5, 2003, Willis Roberts drilled Biggio in the left calf. This was the only game in which Biggio has ever been lifted for a pinch runner after being plunked. He was back in the starting lineup for the following game.
