Has The Deep Dish gone off the deep end? Maddux hasn’t played for the Cubs since 2006, and they’re not playing the Sox right now…â†µ
… except in ESPN Chicago’s Ultimate Rivalry, simulating a seven-game series between rosters chosen earlier by fans on ESPN Chicago’s website. I’d have chosen Phil Cavarretta for 1B instead of Mark Grace; Cavvy played in three World Series for the Cubs.â†µ
In Game One, Maddux threw a four-hit shutout and the Cubs won 7-0. For his part, Grace proved his worth to the team by homering and driving in three runs. Games One and Two are at the Cell; the series continues tomorrow.
