Open Thread: Cubs vs. Reds, Tuesday 8/9

Short turnaround day again, and a quick post from work before I head to the ballpark on what's supposed to be the hottest day of the week.

Today's Starting Pitchers
Mark Prior
M. Prior
vs. Aaron Harang
A. Harang
7-4 W-L 7-10
3.64 ERA 3.90
112 SO 118
35 BB 41
17 HR 12

Reverse psychology time again: last night's pitcher was someone the Cubs should have beat the living daylights out of.

Today, the Cubs face a guy who harangued them three weeks ago in Cincinnati.

Time for some role reversal. As noted in the game post earlier this morning, Corey Patterson is expected to return today. Don't expect too many miracles.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
