Chicago being less than agreeable for Phillies
Justin Klugh Posted: Friday, April 4, 2014, 12:14 PM
Coming off a pair of robustly embarrassing ninth inning losses to the Rangers, the Philliues could use a break. Both were losses in which the Phillies, after scoring 14 runs on Opening Day, failed to score more than three, a number far too low to outrun their implosive bullpen.
They head into Chicago now, to be another teams play thing for another home opener. In fact, the Phillies will be the antagonists for a celebration fo Wrigleys 100th anniversary, and have one of the Cubs greatest heroes as theuir manager. The Phillies are pretty much non-factors in this game.
Meanwhile, Chicago welcomes its visitors with an unseasonably warm winters day, as in Chicago, its actually still December.
Wind gusts up to 40 mph today. It’s blowing out. Roberto Hernandez would be wise to keep the ball down.— Matt Gelb (@magelb) April 4, 2014 More coverage  VOTE: Do the Phillies need to find a new closer? Are Phillies bullpen woes on Sandberg?  POLL: Most popular Phils infielder from this era in 20 years? PHOTOS: 2014 Phillies Spring Training Follow the Phillies: Download our FREE Pro Baseball app! VOTE: Who will win the NL East? Latest Phillies videos  Forum: Can the Phillies contend in 2014?
Ryne Sandberg just met the media. Said he hated hitting here in April.— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) April 4, 2014
Heres an hourly breakdown of what Chicago has in store:
Lack of visibility gives way to clouds excreting curly wind gusts, if these images mean anything. It will feel like a stifling 35 degrees drops significantly to a pleasant 33 degrees during the game.
And did you hear that Emilio Bonifacio, a utility infielder coming off a great year who the Phillies did not deem worthy and instead went with Jayson Nix at the last second for infield depth, has more hits than several entire teams?
