Open Thread: Cubs vs. Brewers, Monday 6/20

SOMEWHERE ON LONG ISLAND -- I am on vacation here with my wife, after that fiasco at Yankee Stadium over the weekend.

Thus, I will be unable to follow the Cubs except as many of you do -- via the Internet and highlight shows (the cable here doesn't have WGN).

If any of you are going to the games in Milwaukee, I would encourage you to post diaries on your experiences there.

In the meantime, let's win some games already.

5-4 W-L 5-3
4.68 ERA 2.86
53 SO 23
15 BB 27
12 HR 6

Tomo Ohka is a lucky guy -- he pissed off his manager in Washington (note Nats cap in photo, which isn't Yahoo's -- it's from Sportsline) by refusing to hand the ball to him when he was being taken out. A few days later he was traded to the Brewers for Junior Spivey, a trade that's worked well for both teams. He's faced the Cubs twice in his career with a 9.00 ERA. Time to get the bats rolling.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
