You don't have to be a fast reader to notice the Cubs haven't done so well against the Yankees.
The only one of these games I remember at all was when Kerry Wood beat Roger Clemens.
Because that game was cool.
It was 2003 and Wood was the young gun and there was a real purpose behind the Cubs (Big League team) back then.
Clemens came to Wrigley looking for his 300th win, and Wood said hey man this town's too small for the both a us.
With today's Cubs... I bet the Red Sox are all saying man, it ain't fair the Yankees get the four freebies against Chicago.
Maybe Jason Hammel can shut 'em down and Tanaka can lose.
That guy lacks a sense of humor, and it would be nice to take him down a notch.
Doug Davis beat the Yankees once.
Have you seen this new MLB Farm site?
Once you go, you'll probably spend a couple hours because it's a freakshow of easy information that seems invented for Cub fans, since you can track Kris Bryant and The Boys Below the Bigs.
And one day the Yankees will come to Wrigley Field and it'll mean something.
They can do the promos on tv about history and rivalries and not have it come off like a joke.
For now, a win against Tanaka would be a gift from the Baseball Gods.
Go Baseball Gods!
