citi field metsA win’s a win, but the Cubs will try to score more than once tonight against Bartolo Colon, whose one at bat (because clearly he’ll be knocked out after that) tonight I can’t wait to see.

Jon Lester is going through a bit of a rough stretch, and hopefully he’ll find the Mets the cure to whatever ails him. Don’t walk them, don’t groove one to Flores, and don’t let Duda or Granderson beat you. That pretty much covers it.

Addison Russell, who is also going through a rough patch, gets the day off.
