Pre-Gamin'

Let’s be reasonable adults: in the run-up to today’s game, the only thing that matters is whether Ryan Dempster actually starts today. As of this moment, he’s still scheduled to do so. And I can barely believe it.

We’ll see what happens.

Alfonso Soriano gets a day off (don’t get all excited, this was expected).

Game Info

Chicago Cubs (40-56) at Pittsburgh Pirates (54-42), 11:35am CT on WGN.
