Open Thread: Cubs vs. Mets, Saturday 8/6

Today's Fox-TV entries are: Cubs/Mets and Braves/Cardinals in the early (noon CT) time slot, and Astros/Giants and Orioles/Rangers (why?) in the late timeslot (3 pm CT).

That means, as far as I can gather with my Fox-TV schedule divining rod, that you will be able to watch the carnage if you live in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, West Virginia, Ohio, most of Pennsylvania (except for areas that normally are considered Baltimore-centric), New England and New York State.

Today's Starting Pitchers
Greg Maddux
G. Maddux
vs. Jae Seo
J. Seo
8-8 W-L 2-1
4.67 ERA 2.00
86 SO 14
24 BB 3
20 HR 3

Seo was called up from Triple-A to replace Kaz Ishii in the Mets' rotation. Len and Bob said that Ishii was in last night's game in the 9th inning, but it was really Dae-Sung Koo.

Greg Maddux tries for the fifth time to reach 314 career wins. He has won only one of his last seven starts.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
