It’s Sunday afternoon, and the Reds and Cubs are about to start the rubber match of this weekend series. Your fifth-place Reds send Matt Belisle to the mound, and Belisle really needs to start pitching well. He’s had one good performance in the last month.
I hope many of you are at the ballpark today. As Jeff Wallner noted, there are too many Cub fans in the stadium this weekend. I noticed the same thing last year when I attended a Cubs series in June. Blue shirts everywhere. It’s disgraceful.
Let’s hope for a big win today. Discuss it here.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
