  • 2011 Chicago Cubs Season

    I see the 2010 season discussion thread is still stickied. Who's ready to move on to 2011? Opening Day is Friday! The current forecast is a high of 47 with rain. Yep. Sounds like Chicago in early April to me. Let's hope the rain holds off long enough to get the game in. Go Cubs!

    This is exciting. Nice mix of veterans and young guys.

      I am interested in seeing how they start off. They'll have to do better then last years opener!

        Well, it would be pretty darn hard to do worse.

          I was at that game. It was the worst time I've ever had at a baseball game. At least we got to see Hank Aaron throw out the first pitch. That was cool.

            Well, we did do better.
            Still lost, though.

              While I would have loved to have seen a win on Opening Day, it's just one game. The Pirates have won 5 straight Opening Days for all the good it's done them. Go get 'em tomorrow, Cubs!

                And get 'em, they did. 5-3 cubs, rallying in the bottom of the 8th. Me happy!

                  In regards to the third game of the Pirates series, I was disappointed with Quade decision to have Reed Johnson hit instead of Fukudome late in the game. Also, Starlin Castro is damn exciting to watch.
                  "The last time the Cubs won a World Series was in 1908. The last time they were in one was 1945. Hey, any team can have a bad century."

                    #3 was disappointing because the game was there to be taken.

                    Still, we're underway and I think we'll improve: the guys in the dugout seem to be into the games, not just sitting there watching what was happening.

                      I'm thrilled that the bats came to life. Marmol is going to blow a save every now and then. That's just a day in the life of a closer.

                          And the cubs won, going over .500.
                          Funny how it worked that way, eh?

                              That was a tough one to lose yesterday.
                              Now we're down below .500.
