Good news and bad news time!
Good news: the Cubs game is the main Fox game today, going to 46% of the USA (the other games are Phillies/Braves and Indians/Tigers).
Bad news: we'll have to listen to Matt Vasgersian and Mark Grace call the game. That could break TV sound systems all over the country. Those two are both awful.
Good news: you don't have to read the above link to find out if the game's on in your market. I've helpfully made out the list for you (in alphabetical order by city):
Bad news: well, I dunno. The Cubs could lose again, I suppose. But we are hoping that at last, our "ace" will indeed BE that ace.
|Today's Starting Pitchers|
This is Hendrickson's first career start vs. the Cubs. Mark DeRosa has had two career AB's against him, hitting a double and a HR, so I'd expect him to get a start, somewhere. Given the meltdown again last night, it feels like the sort of day for a major Lou lineup shakeup.
This one won't be at the Mediacenter, but here's the link anyway.
