wrigley field featuredThe Cardinals are on the cusp of clinching the NL Central crown. Again. Maybe the Cubs can forestall that for a few days.

Travis Wood closes out his season tonight, and I’m sure he’d love to go out with a quality start. It’s been an ugly year for him, and his future looks cloudy.

Like Clayton Kershaw before him, Adam Wainwright is going for his 20th win tonight. That annoys me on so many levels.
