For old times sake, we are going to do a game thread for tonight’s game. Schwarber’s first start. Cubs Lineup Fowler, CF Rizzo, 1B Bryant, 3B Coghlan, LF Castro, SS Schwarber, DH Denorfia, RF Ross, C Russell, 2B Indians Lineup…

The Cardinals are being investigated by the FBI for hacking into the Astros. My professional opinion: hahahahahaahahahahhahahaha More on this to come. From Tim: https://storify.com/Aisle424/cardinals-hack-astros-twitter-reacts-accordingly

It’s not Chris Cotillo breaking the news, but it’s close:   Congrats to my bash brother @kschwarb12 on the call to the show. Gonna miss my boy but couldn’t be more happy for a better dude. Go ball out —…

OSS: Hendricks looks spotty, and the bullpen looks spottier. Three Four Up 1. Addison Russell has really been turning it on lately, making the adjustments nicely. He had two doubles, and looked slick in the field. He added a walk, and…
