Remember when Dale told us that Anthony Rizzo was doing SO WELL in the number two spot that he was going hit in the number two spot for the rest of the year?
I often wonder if Dale remember what he says, or if he’s even really conscious of what he says, or if he just opens his mouth and lets words come out while he’s secretly somewhere else in head. Kind of like when you drive to work and then realize you have no waking memory of getting there. I imagine that’s what it’s like to be Dale most of the time. One day you wake up and you’re on game 161 and you have no memory of how you go there or any of the previous games.
In an effort to get women everywhere to make it through more than one inning tonight, Jake Arrieta (1-0, 3.71) will take the mound for the Cubs. His worthy opponent will be Zach Greinke (12-3, 2.91). How will young Jake fare against the likes of Greinke? You’re going to have to stay up really late to find out.
First pitch is at 9:10 pm CT on CSN.
