Open Thread: Cubs vs. Giants, Saturday 3/5

John Koronka, a 24-year-old lefty the Cubs acquired from the Reds in 2003 for Phil Norton, will start today.

Koronka has very little chance of making the major league roster; he'll likely be a mainstay of the Iowa rotation.

But being lefthanded, he could be useful to the Cubs in the future.

In each of the first two spring games, a Cub has hit a two-run homer (Thursday: Aramis Ramirez; Friday: Nomar Garciaparra).

Who will hit one today? Discuss amongst yourselves.
