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

Remember when Reds players were all clean-cut, with no facial hair and buzzcuts?

No more. Not only that, but they're named "Bronson". No Death Wish today, though.

pitcher stats are 2005 season stats

The last time the Cubs faced Arroyo -- last June 10, when he was a member of the Red Sox, they beat the living daylights out of him. In fact, Arroyo has never beaten the Cubs -- 0-3 lifetime with a 6.50 ERA in 18 innings.

Not quite sure why the Reds are playing this game in the daytime -- the Cubs are off tomorrow and the Reds don't play till Thursday night, also at home.

For those of you outside of Chicago, the game is on ESPN.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
