Ri-COCK-ulous Part 2

Well we're about 30 minutes from game 1 of the Cubs-White Sox series at Wrigley. Not much to say here. At this point, for me, a series sweep of these buttholes would pretty much make my season (since there's not a snowball's chance in hell we're making it to the playoffs). And if we can't get the sweep, then my next wish is for an epic brawl involving a pileup on the mound that would rival the basebrawl in the Naked Gun. I wish we had Farnsworth still. Not for the bullpen but just to watch him body slam some poor schmuck from the White Sox just because he could. Who was that guy he annihilated from the Royals a few years ago? I'm rambling...

Today's matchup is Jon Garland versus Sean Marshall. Last time I talked about Marshall and gave him a glowing endorsement he got shellacked. I'll refrain from it this time around. But Jon Garland, the truth is in the numbers. His stats at Wrigley are less than stellar. He's given up 19 homers this season which is 4th worst in the majors. He averages 1.27 HR/start. Now that I've mentioned this I'm sure the bastard will throw a CGSHO on us. Lets hope not. Oh and good luck to Phat Bastard Nevin today, as he makes his 5th start at LF, while Thunder Matt rides the pine. I'm sure his .228 AVG will be a huge asset in the 6th spot today.......I hope you tear your ACL.
