Pre-Gamin’: Brewers v. Cubs (7:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc.

Shark Attack!

(We gotta hang out hats on something, right?)

The Cubs get their first look at Mike Fiers tonight, who came out of nowhere to pitch pretty well so far this year. Anthony Rizzo gets the night off, as he’s really scuffling of late.

      We must keep reminding ourselves: “It’s audition time. It’s audition time. It’s audition time. It’s audition time. It’s audition time. It’s audition time.” Only by that will we protect a vulnerable sanity.
