Open Thread: Cubs vs. Cardinals, Thursday 4/21

New, comments

If you live on the US West Coast, this is baseball with breakfast, at 10 am PDT.

If you live anywhere, it's Baseball Without Nomar, Day One. We hope for his swift recovery. And yes, Chuck, he's definitely injured. Even faith healing may not help here.

The Cub Reporter today has a post speculating as to who the Cubs might acquire to replace Nomar if he is indeed out for an extended period.

To me, the most interesting name on the list is Craig Counsell. With the Diamondbacks having both Counsell and Royce Clayton, one of them is dealable. Could he be had for a Sergio Mitre?

Man, those are some ugly looking numbers. St. Louis weather forecast for today: 74 degrees, 40% chance of thunderstorms.

Prediction: bats go wild for both teams this afternoon.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
