Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Tigers (6:10 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

If Comerica’s spacious dimensions swallow up one more should-be Cubs home run tonight, I’m gonna lose it. And if the Cubs lose this series to the shell of Michael Fulmer and a fourth place Tigers team, I’m going to be even more upset. We need Jon Lester to bounce back from his last … er, disappointing start to play stopper here and we need the Cubs bats to come alive.

Come on, guys. This is a game the Cubs really should win.

UPDATE: Jason Heyward elected to sit out tonight’s game following the events in Wisconsin and the protests by the Milwaukee Bucks and Brewers.
