Quantcast

wrigley outfieldThe Cubs have taken Games One and Two of their series against the Giants, which gives them a couple cracks at a huge series win. Today’s iteration has Kyle Hendricks – and a fantastic lineup – taking on Matt Cain.

I’ll be in the bleachers in right field somewhere (I used to be able to more reliably point out a specific location, but the bleachers are a little more crowded these days). Look for the dude in a blue/red tie-dye shirt with blue/yellow shoes.

The EBS will probably be later than usual.
