Open Thread: Cubs vs. Pirates, Friday 4/15

Got your tax returns finished?

I did, long ago. Got my refund. But if you haven't, you can do it tonight while watching Carlos Zambrano pitch against Oliver Perez, who has an unsightly 11.00 ERA in two starts this year, and is 1-3 lifetime vs. the Cubs with a 4.50 ERA in six career starts.

One guy Z will likely try to pitch around is Jason Bay, who is 5-for-11 lifetime vs. Z, with three homers. Most of that damage came in this game on September 19, 2003, the first game of a doubleheader I attended at PNC Park, where Bay hit two homers off Z and drove in eight runs. The Cubs managed to win that game anyway 10-9.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
