Open Thread: Cubs vs. Brewers, Wednesday 5/4

Enough angst.

Let's turn on the optimism, shall we? Today is, after all, another chance.

And if you're in the area, go to Miller Park and root for the Cubs -- based on last night's crowd, there should be plenty of tickets available.

Conventional wisdom says:

Dempster's been awful, and the Cubs never hit Santos.

Somehow, I have a feeling Dempster's going to turn in one of those performances that'll make us think he's going to recapture his All-Star form of 2000, and the Cubs' bats will come alive.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
