coors fieldThe surging Chicago Cubs go back to the well tonight in Denver, and Junior Lake is back in center field (against a righty). I expect him to see a steady dose of breaking stuff all night long.

Carlos Villanueva gets the start, and I really hope the badass mustache is back. I want to see that almost as much as I want to see Lake make a throw to home plate (he’s got an 80 arm, if you didn’t know).
