Chicago Cubs

wrigley field inside featureThat’s no moon …

I’m headed to Wrigley for Star Wars Night tonight, so stop by the right field bleachers (down by the LED board) and say hi to the guy in the blue BN shirt and blue/yellow shoes. Security told me the stormtrooper outfit was a no go.

If you’re coming down before the game, I’ll be at Casey Moran’s on Clark.

The Giants will have to get past last night’s frustrating loss (or give in their anger … ), and try to take it out on Edwin Jackson. Conversely, Jackson will try to string together a solid start in an otherwise dismal season.

Hunter Pence thinks Greedo shot first.


UPDATE: Starlin Castro was just scratched due to a family emergency, so Javy Baez will play short, and the lineup will change.

Game Info
