Open Thread: Cubs vs. Dodgers, Tuesday 5/31

What do Jeff Pentland, Rick Sutcliffe, Corey Patterson, Barry Zito, Hayden Christensen and DeWayne Staats have in common?

They are all part of the excellent discussion you guys had all day on the thread below.

Tonight's game, if won, will give the Cubs a winning record for both months so far this year. OK, sure, only one game over .500 each month -- but considering what the club has suffered injury-wise, and performance-wise only Derrek Lee has exceeded expectations (OK, maybe Neifi! too) -- this is an accomplishment.

The last time the Cubs saw Brad Penny was in game 7 of the 2003 NLCS. Nuff said, though they did pound the living daylights out of him in game 2 of said series.
