Game #66 Preview: A's (33-34) @ Cubs (29-36)

Though it sounds like , it's the first day of at Wrigley Field. As for the game on the field, mlb.com reports that Randy Wells is looking at today's start against the A's as on his thus far rocky season.

The irony, of course, is that Wells's employers might not be able to overlook the past quite as easily: since the beginning of May, the righty is 0-5, 6.47. His first-inning troubles have been especially ugly. In 13 Wells starts this year, opponents are hitting .357 against him in the opening inning and Wells's first-inning ERA is a Grabow-esque 11.25.
