Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

wrigley outfieldI’ll be out there in the right field bleachers today, probably loudly hugging Jorge Soler with my words, so say hey if you see me (light blue BN shirt, jeans, blue/yellow shoes).

It’s a bullpen/bench/mix-n-match day for the Cubs, and I think it could generate a lot of fun as the Cubs look to lock in this series and beat up on Michael Wacha. Hopefully there are no residual fireworks from yesterday’s game, but I’d imagine everyone will be on high alert.

Travis Wood starts, and hopefully will give the Cubs at least three strong innings.
