Another chance to get that first win of the season. I'll be interested to see how Jeff Samardzija looks, if nothing else.

I'm going to be on the road for much of the game today. Crap. Family gathering running long. Really wanted to see Samardzija. Hopefully he stays in a long time.

Here we go - I have a feeling I'll be doing alot of this alone while everyone else has family gatherings and such. I'll be lucky if I get two innings

So is the first time in the history of MLB that there have been two players with the last name pronounced the same but spelled differently (Zimmerman/Zimmermann) in the same lineup in Chicago for the third game of the season? Absolutely.

What does this mean? Absolutely nothing. GO CUBS

Well, its another day. Hopefully we can move on from yesterdays disaster. I have high hopes for Shark this season. Garza and Dempster both looked very good in their first two starts so I hope Shark continues the trend. Let's hope the bullpen does it's job today.

I ditched the family gathering in favor of watching the game and writing a paper for class tomorrow. I'll be here the whole game.
