wrigley field from right bleachersThe Cubs lose only heartbreakers these days, and today the Reds go for the sweep. If you’re going to lose anyway, Cubs, just get blown out in the first inning. The late game crap is grating.

Speaking of getting blown out, Edwin Jackson is out to recover from his last outing, in which he was blasted by the Padres, and which he called one of the worst starts of his career. Call me crazy, but I think he’ll be much better this time out.
