    I am sure it will be blowing in, its waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to cold here for it to be blowing out, and trust me it is a very strong wind today.

    I believe so.

    Home runs should be worth double on a day like today.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    The best count to swing against Prior is the first pitch.
    Aurilia should have a great night then.

    Adam Dunn is benched against Willis because he is 0-7 against him in his career.

    Sean Casey owns a career .250 OPS in 16 AB's vs Prior..and he bats 3rd!
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I think only one guy can go yard tonight and that Dunn. Well and if WMP gets in him to.

    Here is the forecast for Chicago tonight. Hopefully the rain holds off until after the game.

    Tonight: Showers likely. Increasing clouds, with a low near 44. West southwest wind between 10 and 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

    I couldn't agree more.

    When I looked at the lineup tonight and once again saw Randa in the clean-up slot, I actually felt a physical wave of anger. If he was still knocking the cover off the ball, fine.... but he's not, and hasn't been for several games now.

    It's just damned foolish!

    I think the rain is going to hold off until after the game is over with.

    There could be some near the end, but I wouldn't guarantee that.

    Prior has a career 1.82 ERA against the REDS, but is 1-2.

    Might be a good night for Cubbie errors.

    The over/under is 9 runs.

    I'll take the under,....way under.

    The Wind's blowing out you say? Never mind, then.
