The Chicago Cubs face the Milwaukee Brewers in their 2nd home stand of the season. It’ll be a 4 games series … Monday-Thursday. The Cubs will see a familiar face in 3B Aramis Ramirez. To me, it’s going to be weird to see him in a different uniform. Will he get boo? I’m not sure, but he didn’t do too much to get boo? Ramirez doesn’t even have the answer for that one. Also, will Cub fans boo Ryan Braun after the steroid allegations? I think he should, but don’t know if he will. Chris Volstad and Paul Maholm will get their first career starts in a Cub uniform.
Game 1) Shaun Marcum vs. Chris Volstad – 6:05 central and it’s on WCIU/ESPN
Game 2) Chris Narveson vs. Paul Maholm – 7:05 central and it’s on CSN
Game 3) Yovani Gallardo vs. TBA (MLB.com says), but it has to be Ryan Dempster – 1:20 central and it’s on WGN
Game 4) Zack Greinke vs. TBA (MLB.com says), but it has to be Matt Garza – 1:20 central and it’s on CSN
Let’s just hope this series has way better outcomes than against the Nationals. The Cubs should be 3-0, but they bring their 1-2 record to Milwaukee. The Brewers are also 1-2.
Let’s get some wins … GO Cubs!
