"This is no junior college. This is the notorious University of Miami.” -- Marlins starter Dontrelle Willis, after getting knocked around for six runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Canes.

CUBS WIN - Oh wait...

Can you believe it? The Marlins somehow found a way to win game 6. What will everyone be talking about - why Dusty left Prior in for so long in his last start or why that fool down the left field line stole the second out in the 7th inning from Moises Alou or Alex Gonzalez struggling to come up with a tough ground ball?

My guess is the fool own the left field line. I'd also guess his name will appear in at least one paper and probably on the radio tomorrow morning. Please don't show up at his house or send him hate mail.

It seems quite fitting though that this year's Brant Brown or Leon Durham is a Cubs fan. Hopefully he isn't one of the loyal thousands who made the trek to Atlanta and/or Miami over the last few weeks. My guess is that he isn't. If he was, I'm sure he would have been into the game enough to realize that when you're in the front row and a player from your team is standing next to you, you shouldn't try to catch the ball.

Ironically, Cubs fans had been writing about this even before tonight's game.

I guess the 3-1 deficit the Marlins were in a few days ago doesn't matter anymore, does it? Oh wait, it's still Redman vs Wood tomorrow...
