Open Thread: Cubs vs. Padres, Monday 4/11

New, comments

Today is the first game against a team that can be considered a legitimate contender.

If the Cubs intend to take up that banner themselves, they had ought to play better the next three days.

Incidentally, after this series the Cubs will play nineteen straight games vs. NL Central opponents.

Today, Adam Eaton faces Ryan Dempster.

Hey, Eaton didn't throw very well his first start either.

Right now the sun is shining. Hope that will keep up, this afternoon.

Discuss amongst yourselves.

UPDATE [2005-4-11 10:51:54 by Al]: Within the last hour, the Cubs placed infielder Todd Walker on the 15-day disabled list with a moderate to severe medial collateral ligament sprain of the left knee. In addition, infielder Mike Fontenot was recalled from Iowa.
