Tonight’s game probably won’t have the same deeply moving story lines as yesterday’s, but it’s still Cubs/Sox, and it’s a national game on Fox. Ryan Dempster is still shooting for his first start of the year.

Randy Wells is going to join the team for tonight’s game, and he’s presumably taking Kerry Wood’s roster spot. Wells will probably pitch out of the bullpen in what could be the start of a permanent conversion to relieving.

But none of that is interesting. KOYIE HILL IS BACK AND IS STARTING AT CATCHER. Seriously. That is actually happening.
