Rich Hill vs. Jon Garland

Whether it is spring training or interleague action, whenever the Cubs and White Sox face each other, there are fireworks. Last year the rivalry gained more steam and with both teams expected to contend, this season should add another chapter in the Crosstown Rival book.

Rich Hill’s professional career hit an all-time low last season when he pitched against the White Sox but Hill did not finish last season the way he pitched against the Sox. Hill will face former Cubs’ farmhand Jon Garland and today’s game will feature the first time Lou Piniella and Ozzie Guillen have faced one another.

Today’s game is the first televised game of the 2007 Cubs, let’s hope the right side of Chicago ends up putting a “W” on the board.

For those of you new to the site, the CCO will provide game previews throughout the year that allows readers to discuss the game as it is being played. Today seemed like the most logical game to debut the 2007 season.

Check back after the game for “This Week in Cubs History” and there will be a full recap from HoHoKam and photos from the game.

Let’s talk Cubbies baseball….
