The Mets celebrate my anniversary by sending Seth Lügo to the mound in candy apple gray, challenging him to show some hart and grant the team a win after their 17-5 cubbing of a drubbing yesterday made no sense at all.

Something I learned today is that Jen-Ho Tseng makes his debüt for the Cubs, continuing their defense of last season's celebrated summer.

Happy Anniversary, Edgy. Didn't you post the pictures here? IIRC it was an outdoor wedding. Right?

Maybe if we can hold them to just a few field goals tonight we have a shot.
Need to tighten up the red-zone D.

Jen-Ho Tseng, making his ML debut tonight -- 22 y/o RHP from Taiwan singed in 2013 by the Cubs as an amateur FA
Split 2017 between AA Tennessee (15 starts - 2.99 ERA) and AAA Iowa (9 starts - 1.80 ERA)

I'm encouraging the Mets to victory by offering the game up to the late Grant Hart of Hüsker Dü.

If Smith keeps hitting homers I won't complain about his....his....his weight transfer during swings. Yea, that's the ticket.

Does the Wrigley Field organ player know any music besides "Little Bit of Soul"?

Which, letting their 1st baseman steal multiple bases uncontested or watching while their 260 lb knee-reconstructed C/LF takes extra bases left and right?

Things went south rather quickly. My MLBtv feed froze a few minutes ago so I don't even know how it happened.

Last I saw we were up 5-4. Suddenly it's 9-5 home team.


We let Rizzo steal twice?
