Hi, friends! Welcome to the live blog of today's game between the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates, otherwise known as the Lloyd McClendon Motivational Seminar.
I encourage you to comment throughout the proceedings. If it's a neat comment and I'm not busy estimating how many couches Lloyd McClendon is in possession of, I just might publish it! (Hint: if your comment is especially vulgar, it won't be posted.)
We have already determined the most Pirates player over the course of our studies this season... but we have not yet asked ourselves who are the most Cubs players. I fully intend to get to the heart of the matter this afternoon. Thank you in advance for your help.
