Open Thread: Cubs vs. Brewers, Wednesday 9/21

A win today puts the Cubs back in third place. Oh, what an epic battle for final positioning!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think third-place divisional finishers get a small cut of the postseason money.

Prior hasn't faced Milwaukee this year; his first start was after the Brewer home-opening series, then he came back from the frightening elbow injury in the second White Sox series, which was right in between two other Milwaukee series, and until this week the two teams hadn't met since June.

Ohka lost to the Cubs on June 20 and is another one of those alternate-guy starters -- good starts on Sept. 5 and 15, interspersed with getting pounded by Houston on Sept. 10. It's his turn to get racked again.

And no more predictions about what Derrek Lee might do tonight, please! ;)

Discuss amongst yourselves.
