So, last night was ugly. Edwin Jackson did not pitch well, the bats did not hit well, and the Cubs lost at Miller Park for the 9th time in a row and the 19th time in 21 games. I’m kind of tired of hearing about those kind of streaks.

Scott Feldman starts for the Cubs as we really enter the window where every single game by a tradable player is going to be heavily scrutinized. So, um, do well, Scott.

Also, don’t do well, Yovani Gallardo.

Brian Bogusevic gets his first start with the big club, spelling Alfonso Soriano in left field.
