The Cubs face the weird-look Royals today.
Why 'weird'? What other team, having lost 100+ games three of the last four years, would "rebuild" with guys like Elmer Dessens, Mark Grudzielanek, Doug Mientkiewicz, Mark Redman and Paul Bako? At the very least, they'll keep the companies that supply letters for the back of uniforms busy.
Angel Guzman faces Denny Bautista, weather permitting, and that forecast doesn't look very "permitting" (Showers likely. Chance of thunderstorms through the day. Windy...cooler. Highs 53 to 58).
