How? How could it be worse, you ask?
We’ve all been worried about the Cubs losing 100 games this year. It could still happen, but it might not.
On the other hands, the Astros, who have already lost 85 games, will probably lose 100 games by the first week in September.
See? SEE? It could be worse!
Oh, and Chris Volstad could be pitching today. But he’s not! Our one remaining decent starter, Jeff Samardizja (I know, I never thought I’d say it, either) is pitching! It’s going to be a good day!
Jeff Samardizja (8-11, 4.17) will take on the Colorado Rockies’ Drew Pomeranz (1-7, 4.87). I like name “Pomeranz” because it sounds like “Pomeranian.” I like Pomeranians.
First pitch is at 1:20 pm CT on WGN.
