We've been having a pretty severe drought here in northern Illinois this summer.
But couldn't it rain next week, instead of now?
|Today's Starting Pitchers|
Yesterday's top Cardinal pinch-hitter takes to the mound. He is 0-4 with a 6.56 ERA over his last four starts. May the Cubs make that record worse today.
Ignore all the breathless Greg Maddux is going to retire stories. He's far too much of a competitor to do that. He'll be back.
In his column today, the Daily Herald's Bruce Miles assigns percentages of the blame for this year's debacle. I think he's too low for the players, and too low for Jim Hendry.
But clearly, there's enough to go around.
As I mentioned yesterday, Ken from Die-Hard Cubs Fun joined me in the bleachers... what you didn't know is that I spent part of the rain delay teaching Corey Patterson plate discipline.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
