Pre-Gamin'

wrigley field from right bleachersSo much for the Brewers being a doormat in this series. Who started that ridiculous rumor?

Jake Arrieta starts for the Cubs in his debut with the club. He’s obviously one to watch as we look ahead to the near-term future.

You’re going to look at the lineup, and you’re going to see things – Nate Schierholtz out against a righty, Darwin Barney sitting. You’re going to want to do some mental gymnastics and predict a trade. Sure, maybe that’s what’s up. Obviously the Schierholtz smoke is quite billow-y right now. But, keep in mind: this is Game Two of a doubleheader. Sometimes the lineup looks wonky because it’s Game Two of a doubleheader.
