Chicago Cubs

wrigley field inside featureAnd now it’s Tsuyoshi Wada’s night to get his second Cubs start.

He’ll have a tough time matching Kyle Hendricks’ performance, but at least he’ll get roughly the same modest Padres lineup. Actually, strike that: there’s literally only one player in the lineup and at the same position as last night (Amarista). I’m not saying it’ll make a huge difference.

On the opposite bump is Ian Kennedy, a theoretical trade target – so watch out for #hugs.
