Harang took over the major league strikeout lead with Johan Santana last night, but Edinson needs just 6 to pass them. I don't see why he can't do that today.

But the story here is probably Lieber. He's making his first start since last June, replacing Rich Hill, whom the Cubs optioned to Iowa on Saturday. Lieber probably won't last too long, as he hasn't pitched 5 innings in a game this season. He's not really striking guys out, but he's been effective.

Let's win.
