Chicago Cubs Home Opener

Monday is a great day to be a Cubs fan–it’s the club’s 95th home opener!

Hasn’t been pretty the last six years, Cubs are just 2-4 in home lid-lifters. All-time, however, they’re still 9-games above .500 (51-42-1).

Ryan Dempster toes the rubber against the Brewers. In 17 starts against Milwaukee he’s 11-3 with a sparkling 2.69 ERA.

Three of those win came last year…(3-1) in four starts…3.67 ERA…28 strikeouts.

Pitching aside, the Brewers can rake. And while all eyes will be on Dempster, the Cubs better score runs!

I’m at the Skybox on Sheffield tomorrow. Will post some pictures from Monday’s festivities as well!
