If only...

If only I'd known that the Cubs were going to face a pitcher making his major league debut for the second day in a row, and that today, Yahoo really wouldn't have a photo of him available, I could have saved yesterday's joke and it would have been really funny today.

What the heck, I'm doing it anyway. Timing is everything, isn't it?

Today's Starting Pitchers
Glendon Rusch
G. Rusch
Cubs
vs. Wandy Rodriguez
W. Rodriguez
Astros
2-1 W-L ---
2.90 ERA ---
23 SO --
19 BB --
0 HR -

Incidentally, when I googled "Wandy Rodriguez" for info on him, Google wanted to know if I meant "Wendy Rodriguez". What's a "Wandy"?

For Glendon Rusch's part, though 19 walks is a lot for 31 innings, he hasn't allowed a homer yet this season. Nice!

Discuss amongst yourselves.
