Pre-Gamin’: Dodgers v. Cubs (7:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread


wrigley outfieldHaving already won the games started by Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw, the Cubs now have two cracks to win this four-game series against the Dodgers. That would be all kinds of awesome.

Tonight’s game is on ESPN2, so there’s a little extra national attention.

I remember when the Diamondbacks dumped Mike Bolsinger in the offseason, and I thought, “Why in the world are they doing that? Why doesn’t every team want this guy for nothing?” I’m not saying I foresaw THIS level of success, but it just makes me scratch my head.
