Every day is another chance to turn it all around. I think that's from 'Vanilla Sky.' Don't hate.

It's Gio Gonzalez versus Matt Garza, and I like the Cubs' chances today.

I'll be streaming the game on the interwebs today...go Cubs! Back to .500!! Here's hoping Garza performs like the ace he can be. If he can outperform Dempster I think we will be set.

If every start from here on out outperforms Dempster's start from Thursday, I think the Cubs can win 155 games. Make it happen, boys.

It's awfully unlikely that I'll be sitting in front of my computer for any appreciable amount of time today -- I think I'll probably go outside and listen to the game as I paint the fence -- let me just leave you with this:

Fuck yeah!

If anyone knows a good way to stream online (MLBTV blocked since I'm still overseas)...let me know.

Otherwise, will be streaming WGN Radio coverage...

BTW...what's with the lineup changes? I haven't had time to pay attention last couple days? Are they just shaking it up?
And that's a bad miss...

The lineup (which just went up in the Pre-Gamin') is mostly a product of facing a lefty, so it's an all-righty lineup. I like it.

The wind is also blowing out hard to left, so that makes it even more attractive to field a righty lineup. Hopefully the Cubs are very patient against Gonzalez, who tends to throw a lot of pitches.

For LaHair, he could pinch hit today and be in the lineup tomorrow.

Of course, the parents in law's Internet goes down just as the game is about to start.

Well, save for the wind, the weather will not be an excuse.....As Harry would say, "It's a Bee-ute-ti-ful Day in Chicago!"
