wrigley field from right bleachersI’m still mad at you, wind.

The Cubs will try to even the series at one with the decimated-but-still-able-to-beat-the-Cubs Brewers. Travis Wood takes the ball, and he picked the right day – the last time he pitched at Wrigley with the wind howling out, he gave up five homers to the Cardinals. Tonight, the wind isn’t expected to be blowing out like it was yesterday. It’s actually looking like it might be blowing in.

Of course, as we saw yesterday, that can change on a dime.

Brent Lillibridge is going to get a hit tonight. He has to. His OPS+ can’t stay -100 forever.
