The Cubs take the field today in their Orphan Throwback Uni's to face the 1899 Cleveland Spiders.  Some of the regulars get the day off in preparation for the Cardinal series this weekend.  Lou has seen fit to give Howry his first career ML start today, thereby insuring that he'll be unavailable for the next few days. Smart move Lou!  He couldn't have picked a better opponent to help Bob build up some confidence, because the Spiders have posted the worst season in professional baseball history.  This should be an easy win (knock on Wood), but that's why they play the games right?

The rumor is that a certain internet baseball blogger will sing TMOTTBG today...Go Cubs!
