Open Thread: Cubs vs. Astros, Thursday 6/15, 1:20 CT

There's a game at Wrigley Field this afternoon.

It's sunny. It's supposed to be 85 degrees.

Well, what else CAN I talk about? The latest salvo fired in the Tribune Co. soap opera? I'd rather talk about baseball.

Today's Starting Pitchers

vs. Hou -- vs. Cubs
There's not too much to say about this matchup, either. Z just faced the Astros last week, as you know, and threw his best game of the year. Nieve has never faced the Cubs, and doesn't his name look like it's missing an "s" on the end?

I'm tired of posting pitcher tendencies, what they do vs. the other team, home vs. road, day vs. night, etc. -- because recently, each one has pretty much turned out to be the opposite of what I've written.

So instead, I'll just say:

Play ball!

Discuss amongst yourselves.
