Writing anything but the following could be the kiss of death, so this post is going to be short and sweet: this afternoon, when it appears it will have finally stopped raining here in Chicago, the Cubs will face the White Sox for the final time in 2007.
|Today's Starting Pitchers|
Jose Contreras is officially 35 years old. There have been rumors that he's quite a bit older than that, and this year, he's been pitching that way -- he's got his highest ERA in three years, his K levels are way down, and since his shutout of the Twins on May 10, he's 2-4 with a 5.79 ERA in seven starts. The just-returned Aramis Ramirez has eight career PA vs. Contreras -- a walk and 3 HR and 6 RBI and this gaudy line: .429/.556/1.714.
Today, the Cubs announcers return to WGN; the Sox telecast is on CSN; and other choices are at the Mediacenter.
