Open Thread: Cubs vs. Red Sox, Friday 6/10

Just like the other Sox series -- enough talk, let's play ball.

The only other thing I'll tell you is that I happened to drive past the ballpark this morning, on my way to drop Mark off to meet some of his friends, being driven to a birthday party.

There were several hundred people in line -- around the corner from the box office onto Addison Street -- waiting in line for standing-room tickets; this was about 8:15.

This is one of the few pitching matchups in recent weeks, where the stats of the two starters are actually similar. Arroyo was last seen at Wrigley Field as a kid starter for the Pirates four years ago. He's a lot better now than he was then.

One final trivia note on this series: it is the only interleague matchup that has not yet occurred since interleague play began in 1997.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
