Live Thread - Day Baseball: Braves vs. Cubs 9/20/13

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Greetings Baseball Fans!  It’s time for daytime baseball – and Braves fans will have a little extra spring in their step today with the surprisingly quick return of Jason Heyward to the lineup today.  Here’s the lineup (which looks almost playoff-worthy):

Weather right now at the Wrigleyville station is being reported as follows:

  • 71 to 71.5 degrees
  • Mostly Cloudy to Overcast
  • Wind from the SW at 5 to 8 mph, occasionally swinging to the South and West.  Gusts to 12 mph.
  • Humidity 79%

Sooooo what does that means:  the wind is blowing OUT:  directly toward center field and Lake Michigan.  Nobody knows this more than Paul Maholm, so let’s just hope he can keep the ball down and in the park.

Jason will be worked back in somewhat slowly:  here’s the start of the plan…

 

I’ll do play-by-play later… may be just a touch late due to lunch considerations.
