Well, about the only thing dangerous about Wainwright is his mouth and swelling up like a monkey on the mound.

Curious. Could you explain what kind of notes MM is writing during game.

His epitaph.

Huge series. Cubs have lost 5 of 7 and we better use this series to do some catching up. I’m not sure we have the fire power this year to do it though. I love to be proven wrong however..
