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

New, 4 comments

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.
