Open Thread: Cubs vs. Royals, Tuesday 3/15

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Sergio Mitre will go for the Cubs today against a pitcher named Wood who isn't hurt -- Mike Wood of the Royals, on MLB Audio.

It's pointless to talk about our Wood, or Mark Prior, today, or until we get more information.

We do know today that Dusty Baker has chosen his closer. But, he's not telling us who it's going to be.

If I had to guess, given what's happened so far, my instinct tells me it'll be Joe Borowski.

Also, thanks to JD, my SportsBLOGS colleague over at The Red Reporter, who has found an updated site with 2005 payroll figures.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
