Oh, and there's another baseball figure who has a birthday on April 14. Some guy named Rose.

Today's Starting Pitchers
Greg Maddux
G. Maddux
vs. Brandon Claussen
B. Claussen
1-0 W-L 0-0
1.42 ERA 5.40
1 SO 5
2 BB 0
1 HR 1
Guy for Maddux to avoid today: Reds catcher Javier Valentin, who has homered four times off him in ten career at-bats.

Claussen is 1-3 lifetime vs. the Cubs in four career starts with a 7.91 ERA. Expect Jerry Hairston to get a start at 2B today.

The wind will be blowing out again, likely this time to right field.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
