Thursday 5/30- Jake Peavy vs. Travis Wood (Wrigley Field)
I know I care....the Sox could be at .500 going into this series,and need to get over .500.
And yes, I still like beating the Cubs,no matter where the teams sit in their divisions....of course I like beating whoever is playing the Sox that day.
As for the matchups...Sox get the Cubs best (Smarmy and Wood)...per usual. Sox got the Red Sox best also(Lester and Buchholz),then the Tribe get Dempster in the next game and blow him out. Bad luck.
The Cubs starters have been pretty solid...cept for Jackson,surprisingly.
Feldman even hit a two run homer last nite...do not give him anything straight,Johnny!
I think game 1 is huge in this series. Smarmy is tough,and Jose can be tough,but also must hit his spots. Cubs have lost a ton of one run games,and are currently in a bad mode...please let it extend another week.
