I've got Jason Heyward, who I've got high expectations from in St. Louis, going tonight, as well as Dexter Fowler, who I hope can be productive atop the Cubs lineup. Not fortunate enough to have Lester, and wouldn't reach for Wainwright.

I'm pretty shocked that this game is a near pick 'em. Maybe I'm just way down on Wainwright, but I think the Cubs win this one.

Heyward looked good. Strike zone along with that strike zone graphic sucked.

Ya my friend works for the company that provides the pitchfx data and told me that ESPN is doing that for every game. Pretty annoying.

The most annoying part for me was Schilling and Kruk continually mentioning how it showed how good catchers were at framing the plate, when an ump would call a pitch 3 inches off the plate a strike, when all I was seeing was, "Man, this ump has a huge strike zone."
