Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

“Justin Germano goes again for the Cubs, looking to keep up his streak of hey-those-are-pretty-decent-starts-despite-the-lack-of-strikeouts.”

That’s what I said in this space last week when Germano faced these Brewers. He did not continue his streak. Hopefully tonight goes more smoothly.

Josh Vitters gets the start on his birthday. Neat.
