Open Thread: Cubs vs. Marlins, Saturday 7/9

New, comments

It's hard to believe based on this Miami-area radar loop, but as of now, 90 minutes till game time, tonight's game is still on.

So, here are the starting pitchers, and let us hope that last night's lineup makes a repeat appearance (with Derrek Lee back at 1B, of course.)

Marlins starter Scott Olsen is a Chicago-area native and was among the massive crowd in the streets around Wrigley Field during game 6 of the 2003 NLCS.
