8/20 Braves (Jurrjens) @ Cubs (Dempster) 1:20 CDT, CSNTV

This rematch of the 1998, er, 2003 playoffs sees Derrek Lee make his long awaited, much anticipated return to the Friendly Confines:



As he's grown, his on field performance and off field demeanor have endeared to to fans wherever he has played. Well, as much as could be expected in 22 games for San Diego, and surely to all 1,200 Marlins fans as well. But Chicago became his home, where he was embraced as one of us.












The game itself features the 2010 Cubs, who have done their best impression of Dempster's 2009 Dugout Vault...




Really though, it's left us all feeling as though we've been stabbed.




If only we could watch these games again as when did as children, not looking beyond that afternoon's final score. A young Dempster...




And this afternoon's pitching opponent agree:




If only the Cubs could scare Jurrjens as much as running the bases apparently does:




In the end, Ryan Dempster brings it all back into perspective.






The season may be over, but there are still 11 opportunities left to enjoy a little sun at the old ballpark (and 7 night games).
