Open Thread: Cubs vs. Cardinals, Tuesday 9/6

The season continues tonight in St. Louis.

(Boring statement? Sure it is. Wish I had more excitement to report.)

Today's Starting Pitchers
Glendon Rusch
G. Rusch
vs. Matt Morris
M. Morris
5-8 W-L 14-6
4.83 ERA 3.91
92 SO 101
47 BB 27
11 HR 15

Rusch has been really awful; he's lost seven consecutive decisions and the Cubs have lost the last ten games he's appeared in. Plus, he has a 5.00 career ERA vs. the Cardinals.

Morris hates the Cubs; he's stated that publicly several times. The Cubs, happily enough, have taken this out on him on the field, defeating him twice this year and hitting five home runs off him in twelve innings pitched.

God, I love beating the Cardinals. Even 21 games behind them. Let's get 'em tonight.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
