Bryant is in the lineup:

Fowler-Denorfia-Bryant-Rizzo-Soler-Castro-Ross-Lester-Russell

If Fowler's AB is any indication, this umpire has a huge strike zone tonight.  Liriano might have thrown one actual strike in that AB.

2-0 pitch to Bryant was also way out of the zone.  MLB's umpires are terrible.

It's gonna be a long night if Liriano gets those low balls called all night...

Luckily, Lester got a laughably huge strike zone too.

Either ESPN's strike zone is way off, or this is already looking like one of the worst home plate umps we've seen this year.  Who is the umpire?

The plate ump has now called pitches that were off the plate outside, low, and inside as strikes.  He did say a strike to Soler was low.  Nothing like being consistent.

Any word on how long of a delay?  I hope Lester can still pitch.  I would really hate to have to go to the pen this early at the start of such an important stretch.

Weather Channel radar makes it look like the rain will be moving out in a few minutes.  Hopefully Lester has thrown a simulated inning or two and is still loose enough to come out for another 3-4 innings.

Why did they start the game?  Because it's on ESPN?

I think this is the worst year for weather that I can remember for the Cubs.
