marlins home run sculptureThe Cubs look to take a commanding 2-0 series lead tonight on the back of Scott Feldman, who could really, really, really use a good start. This is your chance, Scott. Terrible lineup in a very pitchable park. Just throw strikes.

Anthony Rizzo doesn’t get the day off, even against a lefty, which is surprising to me. It seems like he could use a night to rest and collect his thoughts, but, hey, the coaches know him better than we do. Maybe he’s a “play through it” kind of guy.

(And 1.5 hours and counting left to join the BN Fantasy contest … )
