Ah, the comforts of home. Beer, brats, a team who is unquestionably worse than we are, and 30,000 of their obnoxious fans. Entertaining them all tonight will be Tomo Ohka and Carlos Marmol. Marmol has made two of his ten career starts against the Crew, and the Cubs won both times.
Gabe Gross is back in the leadoff spot, and apparently there is no truth to the rumor that Corey Hart has chronic wasting disease. However, management is holding him out of tonight's game as a precautionary measure.
