    I don't know the final score, but I know the Cubs are going to score a buttload of runs. Aaron's a slow starter, and the Cubs offense is going to be swinging. I predict they hit three dingers off Aaron alone; that's not even counting the bullpen.

    Are you sure you are a Reds fan? It's Opening Day, be positive.

    Reds 6
    Cubs 2

    Harang 7 IP, 2 runs, 9 Ks.
    Gonazlez 2 run homer in the 3rd
    Dunn solo shot in the 7th.
    Hamilton pinch hit single in the 8th
    Coffey and Burton pitch well out of the pen.
    Lou gets, at least, one standing O.

    I think you were looking at something else. How about all those runs the scrubs scored today? The cubs are still the cubs.

    Turns out that Aaron was ready to start the season. Doesn't mean that the Cubs' 1-4 hitters haven't pounded the snot out of Reds' pitching this millennium.

    The Reds are probably still the Reds.

    Undaunted that his doom and gloom prediction was wildly incorrect, FCB plows ahead with his predictions of disaster, until, of course, one happens. Persistant and consistant. I truely admire that about you my friend.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
