So the Cubbies are stacked up against Alfredo Simon and the Cincinnati Reds tonight at Wrigley. Against Simon, most of the Cub’s lineup has limited experience. Only Ben Zobrist and Anthony Rizzo have more than 10 at-bats against the young righty, and Rizzo is the only player in the lineup tonight for the Cubs who
For about 8 innings, last night was absolutely miserable for Cubs fans. It was a cold night, Lester didn’t have his best stuff, and until Grandpa Rossy singled in the bottom of the 7th, the Cubs were without a hit against Brandon Finnegan (who?

Booyah. What a start to the season. 2 games 2 wins, and I am feelin’ good. Last night we got out of Jon Lester what we expect to get out of Jon Lester, and our offense did just what it was supposed to do as well. Lester threw 7 innings of 4 hit ball, allowing
