Baseball is back, Baby!
Cubs vs. Reds, Zambrano vs. Harang, 98 years of demons vs $130 million payroll. The 2007 season begins in a few short moments and we'll find out if the team is ready, there's no doubt we as fans are for the season.
A few site notes before we get started. Don't forget to get your vote in on your chat
program of choice. Whatever is ahead tomorrow morning when I check will be the winner for the year.
Also, the detailed previews of years past is a thing of the past. Sorry. Too much time looking up lineups and stats that could be used for writing more in-depth articles. So welcome to preview-lite, a simple open thread with the starters for the day and if the lineups are out when I do these, you might get those as well.
As for game, the Cubs started out the last few years blowing out their Opening Day opponent and then finding ways to disappoint us for the rest of the season, so if today is a close game or if we happen to lose, not the worst thing that could happen.
