Open Thread: Cubs vs. Nationals, Saturday 5/14

I'm posting this early today as I'll be in a meeting most of the morning and afternoon, and wanted you to have today's discussion thread available.

Excellent pitching matchup tonight:

L. Hernandez
3-1 W-L 5-2
3.61 ERA 4.02
42 SO 31
19 BB 24
7 HR 4

Again, here's a pitcher who'll walk you if you're willing to wait.

Also, please welcome two new members of the SportsBLOGS family -- Viva El Birdos, about our rivals the Cardinals (and how sweet it was to see them lose in person last night!), and the Royals Review.

Think about it every time you think things are going badly for the Cubs -- you could be a Royals fan.

Discuss amongst yourselves.

UPDATE [2005-5-14 15:18:28 by Al]: According to Phil Rogers' latest column, among the possibilities being considered to replace the resigned Tony Pena as KC Royals manager is... Bob Brenly.

Hmmmmmmm. Interesting.
