Pre-Gamin’: Phillies v. Cubs (3:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

wrigley outfieldDeep breath.

And another.

And another.

… nope. Still not totally over yesterday’s loss. Winning today would go a long way to easing my unsettled mind, though.

The Cubs have a great arm on the mound today in Jake Arrieta, so that helps. Of course, on the other side is Cole Hamels, who, despite two consecutive atrocious outings in which he was lit up by the Giants and Marlins, is still very good. Please don’t let the Cubs be his bounce-back and showcase game.
