ESPN does 'flyover country'

Oh, goody, we get Jon Miller and Joe Morgan tonight as ESPN (Eastern Seaboard Programming Network) comes to town. Actually, Miller is an easy listen, even if he overdoes it with the "correct" pronunciation of a lot of names. As for Morgan, I'm sure we'll hear a lot about the importance of "small ball" and stolen bases. Ring me if he touches on the Cubs' improved on-base percentage and patience at the plate this year. The Cubs are wearing those godawful blue softball jerseys tonight. The best thing John McDonough did as team president last year was put those blue pajamas in mothballs. The worst thing Crane Kenney did as chairman this year was bring them back. Aramis Ramirez is out of the lineup again tonight. He may return tomorrow in Cincinnati. The lineup: Soriano, LF Theriot, SS Lee, 1B Fukudome, RF DeRosa, 3B Soto, C Fontenot, 2B Johnson, CF Marquis, P It's former Cardinal Jason Marquis against former Cub Todd Wellemeyer, whom Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano nicknamed "Shoulders."
