Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

safeco fieldThe Cubs and Mariners play again tonight at a much less ungodly hour. The lateness of yesterday’s game spared me the heartache of the late loss, though, so it wasn’t all bad.

Jeff Samardzija versus Aaron Harang tonight. I’ll … take Samardzija.

It’s a throw-back night, so the Cubs are going to be wearing jerseys from 1909, or Year One, as jerks like to call it.
