Cubs @ Mets: Lackey vs Matz (Game 78)
Don’t say revenge.
CHC (51-26): RHP John Lackey (7-4, 3.29)
NYM (40-37): LHP Steven Matz (7-3, 3.29)
First pitch: 6:10pmCST
Lackey got lit up in Miami on Saturday (4.1 IP, 7 ER, 5 K, 3 BB). He was 1-0 with a 1.29 in two starts last year against the Mets. Overall, they are 39-166 (.235) against him. Granderson is 10-41 with a HR.
Matz, who is dealing with a bone spur, was given an extra day—as if that will help. He had a no-decision in Atlanta his last time out (4.1 IP, 6 ER, 0 K, 0 BB). He’s 0-2 with a 5.91 so far this year. None of the Cubs have faced him.
Hammel (7-4, 2.58) versus deGrom (3-4, 2.67) tomorrow at 6:10pmCST.

None are official. The Cubs haven't officially turned in paperwork on anyone.

Finally, someone to give the Green and Libertarian Parties equal footing.

I wonder if the investment cost the exact amount we saved by trading Darvish...
Calling oneself Straight Arrow is like someone having to say "you can trust me completely." Pretty clear the opposite is true.

Reclamation projects with minimal risk are good in general, but having this guy be currently projected for a rotation spot is laughable.
I would have much preferred to see them sign Foltynewicz in this capacity. Folty was bad last year and the year before but at least its only been two years since he was successful, and he has two years of team control remaining. Miller last put together a good season in 2015.

Monday Tribune: Conservative Joe Ricketts to launch Omaha-based "unbiased" online news service (called Straight Arrow news).
Yeah, right. Making son Pete look like a liberal.
Laura when hearing the name hysterically laughed out loud.
