Open Thread: Cubs vs. Cardinals, Saturday 4/22, 1:15 CT

Hooray! Another chance to beat the Cardinals today. Last night, bad as it was, only counts as one loss.

Rusch was better in his last start, getting a win and allowing only one HR. Of course, that was only the Pirates.

Since the Cubs last faced Ponson on April 9, he threw well against the Reds and won.

Today might be a day to sit Jacque Jones, who is 5-for-26 lifetime against Ponson, and start Michael Restovich in RF -- he's 1-for-3 vs. Ponson, both from their days in the AL. Just a hunch.
