wrigley field from right bleachersHow often do you see a guy sign a huge extension and then have a monster game that night? Ok, I don’t think that’s a “thing,” but maybe Anthony Rizzo makes it a thing tonight. And maybe he brings Starlin Castro along with him.

Travis Wood takes on a Rockies lineup that has been dominated of late. Which means they are either due for a breakout, or still in a slump. Wood’s performance might dictate the narrative.

Luis Valbuena is still out with his pinky issue, which is a bummer.
