We're still tied for the wildcard, and both the Mets and Brewers are one game behind the Phillies. Here's the situation this evening:
- 6:05 CT: Nats at Phils, Balester v. Blanton. For good measure: the weather report.
- 6:10 CT: Marlins at Mets, Volstad v. Pelfrey. At the moment, it's not raining outside my window (a few miles from Shea), but it looks like that won't last.
- 7:05 CT: Cubs at Brewers, Dempster (for 75 pitches, anyway) v. Suppan. I think we can live without a weather report on this one.
The lineup is the Sveum-era vRHP usual, and Hardy is in there. It'll be interesting to see which Cubs regulars are starting, and how long they last.
