A Happy Fourth of July to everyone. It’s a great day to remember the founding of the country and those who continue to work on our behalf to preserve it.
It’s going to be a smoking-hot afternoon at Wrigley Field. Several hours before game time, it’s already roasting.
I have a flight after the game tonight — I rate my chances of making it 30-70 at this point. Stay tuned later as we will learn who makes the All-Star team on TBS beginning at Noon ET.
Sunday lineup vs. Cubs
*Chris Dickerson is here, currently taking fly balls in the outfield with Billy Hatcher hitting balls his way. Dickerson wasn’t here the previous the three days. Dickerson (right hand/wrist surgeries) recently resumed swinging again after he had to shut it down because of a setback.
