Open Thread: Cubs vs. Brewers at Mesa, Tuesday 3/6, 2:05 CT

Jason Marquis will attempt to build on the decent outing he had in his first start last Thursday; he'll be facing the Brewers' Claudio Vargas. The last time the Cubs faced Vargas, when he was a member of the Diamondbacks last summer, they beat the living daylights out of him -- including three home runs (Ramirez, Barrett, Murton).

Vargas was acquired by Milwaukee along with Johnny Estrada in a six-player trade last November.

You can follow along on Gameday (link usually active about 30 minutes before gametime), and listen on MLB Audio (today is a webcast only, so some miscellaneous MLB announcers will be doing the game, rather than hearing a Hughes/Santo or Bob Uecker broadcast).

Discuss amongst yourselves.
