I heard Len joke about this during yesterday's loss - the bad weather in Chicago would be the bad weather in Pittsburgh.
"We can't get away from it."
For tonight's 6:05 game vs the Pirates, the stupid weather will be... hey wait.
Last night when I thought this gif up, the weather was supposed to be awful in Pittsburgh.
That's what I mean by stupid weather - it won't even cooperate with my gif.
So... um... nevermind.
Don't look at the gif or the headline.
Move along now...
The Cubs open a big series against the Pirates tonight with our NL ERA-leading Jason Hammel (.75) on the mound vs. some guy named Gerrit Cole.
Oh wait, Gerrit COLE!
He's 2-2 with a 2.78 so far this year.
The last time we saw Mr. Cole was last October in the Wild Card Game with Cole vs Jake Arrieta and the wacky Sean Rodriguez vs water cooler fight as Cubs shut 'em out 4-zip.
The game where Jake Arrieta got hit by a pitch and you wonder if there's still some bad blood between these teams.
I hope not, but I guess we'll see.
Can you believe how awesome this season is already?
