We have a tradition in our household. Every year, we book off work and enjoy Chicago Cubs baseball on their home opener. it’s a chance to ring in the new baseball season and an opportunity to spend time together. it’s also a great way to say, “We’re not going to work today because we’re watching baseball!”
This year, the Cubs face the Brewers. Edwin Jackson gets the call to the mound for the Cubs in what could be a rainy Opening Day. it’s Edwin Jackson’s home debut and it’s a great way to kick things off at Wrigley Field.
Yesterday, News came out that Carlos Marmol isn’t the closer and Fujikawa is in. This really isn’t a surprise since Carlos has been brutal this spring. I hope he can rebound and find out the tools that were broken.
“I’m excited about it,” Jackson said of his home debut. “It should be a fun time for everybody, the home opener. We get to officially start the season in front of our home crowd, I’m sure they’re excited as well. It should be a good time. Hopefully the weather permits us to play.”
