I'm going to start today's game thread by talking about tomorrow's game. Count me as baffled by the decision to recall Angel Guzman to start Sunday -- and beyond:
And he expects the pitcher all three times to be Guzman.
The puzzling thing is why the Cubs are forcing the issue with Guzman now, when the first time they'll actually need that fifth starter is next Saturday in Philadelphia.
Now, on to today's game, which should be available to many of you who have Extra Innings, since it is not within the Fox-TV late-afternoon blackout period.

Rich Hill continues his solid performances. Since his recall last July 27, he is 7-4 in 18 games (17 starts), covering 115.2 innings in which he's allowed 80 hits, 14 HR, 35 walks (0.99 WHIP), struck out 108, and had an ERA of 2.57.
Just keep it up. I'm happy to have been wrong about Rich Hill.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
