Gamecast: May 21, 2010 - Cubs at Rangers
Ted Lilly (1-3, 4.65 ERA) vs. Colby Lewis (3-2, 3.68 ERA)
I'm so excited and I just can't hide it! Bob Howry is making his comeback with the Cubs. I loooovvvee it! Well, maybe not love, but can he be worse than John Grabow? I guess they can be equally as bad and that is the problem with the Cubs.
The Cubs find themselves five games back today and ready for interleague play. It will be interesting to see how Lou handles the lineup, but I guess that Xavier Nady and Tyler Colvin will at least see a start or two. The Cubs could DH Alfonso Soriano and let Colvin play left, or just let Xavier Nady play. I'll try to update when the lineups are released.
Who's Hot (Night Edition)
Starlin Castro - He loves the night to the tune of a .393 average.
Mike Fontenot - He's hitting .371 with a .909 OPS.
Aramis Ramirez - Not surprisingly, but Ramirez is only hitting .132 at night.
Derrek Lee - Again, not shocking, but Lee's hitting .188 under the lights.
Interleague play is novality, but it is here to stay. I would like to see the Cubs in all the American League parks at some point. So, at least until I hit my last seven ballparks.
