Rain, rain, go away, because I'm going to the game today

I'll be at Wednesday's game with Trevor Sierra and Brian Brennan. Tuesday's rainout was the first time a Cubs-Sox game had ever been rained out, and let's hope Game 2 doesn't suffer the same fate.

After two off days in a row for the Cubs (which is completely unacceptable), let's take a look around the rest of the majors:

-I hate to do this, but did you know that Mark DeRosa's "big three" statistics (BA, HR, RBI) are better than those of nearly every single Cubs player?

DeRosa: .280
Highest Cub: .283

DeRosa: 13
Highest Cub: 14

DeRosa: 48
Highest Cub: 27

-The Cubs now sit 3.5 games out of first after the Brewers took the first two games of their set with Cleveland.

-Colorado's 11-game winning streak was finally snapped with a 12-4 loss to the Rays, who are now on a six-game winning streak of their own.

Did you know ...

-Ichiro is leading the AL in hitting (.360).

-Chad Billingsley and Matt Cain are tied for the NL lead in wins (9).

-The Royals lead the majors in complete games (7).
