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.
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.
