Cubs and Brewers Tonight!

By Danny Rockett

Yu Darvish Chicago Cubs Gear

The Cubs begin a 4 game set in Mil-ay-wauk-ay tonight and America's 5th drunkest city according to some bozo at CBS news in 2016 is about to get a lot drunker with Chicagoans invading Wrigley North. 

A few upfront notes on the series.

Christian Yellich, one of the Brewers 27346 Outfielders, hurt his oblique. He's not on the DL or anything so we will probably see him at some point. However, the Brewers faced the STD ridden Carlos Martinez of the Cardinals yesterday and it's certainly possible that Yellich's oblique injury is actually back herpes. Use precaution if you're traveling up for the series. 

The Brewers started the season by sweeping 3 from the Padres and then lost 2 of 3 to the Cardinals, getting shutout 6-0 by Chlamydia Carlos.

All the starters got pushed back a day because of Cincinnati's crappy weather Tuesday, so the entire pitching staff should be rested. The weather for Milwaukee looks cold with a chance of snow on Sunday. But luckily the weather for the games has 100% chance of of dome. 

I'll be at the Ivy Envy Tailgate freezing my beer tits off on Saturday! Hope to see some of you. 

*If you are going to the game and have the MLB Ballpark App, make sure you Check In for discounted tickets when the Cubs go up there in June on 6/11-12.
