Pre-Gamin’: Dodgers v. Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc.

Pre-Gamin'

Baseball is awesome, and a day spent watching baseball is better than almost any other day. Still, there are occasionally days when you just don’t want to choke down another Cubs-kick-in-the-crotch sandwich. Today is one of those days. Worse, it’s against the all-universe Dodgers and Chad Billingsley.

At least the Cubs are back home. And, you know what? Screw it. It’s a Friday afternoon, the Cubs are on, and it’s going to be a good day. I have decided.

If you need some pre-game entertainment, I’ll be on Wrigley Talk Friday at 1pm CT with Julie DiCaro from A League of Her Own. It’s live, so maybe you’ll hear me say something stupid.
