Open Thread: Cubs vs. Pirates, Monday 5/1, 7:05 CT

New, 321 comments

This is one of the matchups that makes you cringe looking at the statistical comparisons.

Marshall threw very, very well in his last start.

The Cubs beat the living daylights out of Santos last time they faced him, on April 14.

And, the Pirates are 1-12 on the road. The one game they won? Um... Santos beat the Reds in Cincinnati on April 9.

There is still a 60% chance of rain tonight, and a rainout wouldn't be bad, as it would likely mean the Cubs wouldn't have to face Zach Duke tomorrow.

If they do play tonight, Aramis Ramirez is 7-for-18 with a HR lifetime vs. Santos. The calendar has changed; time for Aramis to step up.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
