CHICAGO — It’s pretty bright and sunny at Wrigley Field this afternoon so I think it’s safe to say there will indeed be baseball in the Windy City this evening.

The Nationals will be sending Chien-Ming Wang to the mound for his third start of the season and since we went through this song and dance yesterday, here are some notes on what he’s done in the past two starts and a few more on what the Nationals expect out of him in this start.


Everything is the same for both the Nationals and Cubs as they prepare to open their three-game series one day late, even the lineups for both sides.

Here they are, in case you’ve forgotten:


Rick Ankiel CF
Danny Espinosa 2B
Ryan Zimmerman 3B
Michael Morse 1B
Jayson Werth RF
Jonny Gomes LF
Ian Desmond SS
Wilson Ramos C
Chien-Ming Wang P


Starlin Castro SS
Darwin Barney 2B
Aramis Ramirez 3b
Carlos Pena 1B
Marlon Byrd CF
Alfonso Soriano LF
Tyler Colvin RF
Geovany Soto C
Matt Garza P
