Open Thread: Cubs vs. Brewers, Friday 4/8

New, comments

Chris Capuano vs. Kerry Wood.

Capuano's only career start against the Cubs was last July 18 at Wrigley Field, oddly enough, also against Wood. The two starters matched six-inning, four-hit, one-run appearances; Francis Beltran blew the tie game and Capuano got the win in a 4-2 Brewers victory.

Wood is 6-6 with a 2.97 ERA in 17 lifetime starts against Milwaukee.

The most interesting lineup possibility for today, since Capuano is a lefty, will be to see if Dusty holds true to his "promise" to start Jason Dubois in LF vs. lefthanded pitching.

This is the 90th home opener at Wrigley Field. The Cubs are 49-39-1 in the 89 previous -- the tie occurring in 1965, 10-10 vs. St. Louis.

Let's play ball! Discuss amongst yourselves.
