MINNEAPOLIS -- It's a nice day in the Twin Cities today, although temperatures are supposed to be near 90 with increasing humidity.
Know what happens to baseballs when humidity rises? They can get hit farther. Given that there were five home runs in Friday night's game, and that both teams have pitching staffs that are horrific, maybe we'll see some sort of home-run record fall Saturday afternoon.
I'm reaching, I know. Got to have something of interest in this game, because these two teams certainly aren't. Unless, that is, you think the Cubs could set some kind of loss records this year. And they appear to be on the way to doing just that. They're already on the second-worst 23-game stretch in team history;
