Open Thread: Cubs vs. Diamondbacks, Wednesday 4/6

It's rare that a game this early bears importance, but this one does.

Coming home 1-2 against a team that really isn't very good, would not be a good start to the year.

Coming home 2-1 from a road series, is gratifying to any team and sets the stage well for a festive home opener Friday with Kerry Wood pitching.

Tonight, Ryan Dempster faces Brandon Webb.

No quotes of vs. team stats today -- I just have a good feeling about Dempster despite his horrid spring.

Remember, game time is thirty minutes later than last night to accomodate ESPN2, 9:10 pm CT. Chicago area viewers will see the game on CSN.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
