It’s a rematch of Opening Day, as Aaron Harang leads the Reds against the Cubs and Carlos Zambrano. The only difference is we’re playing at Wrigley Field today. Let’s hope the result is the same as we saw in that first game.
Juan Castro will be in the lineup, but so will Josh Hamilton, I imagine. Has Hamilton’s magic worn off in the last couple of days? Will he really collect a couple more extra-base hits today? Will Hamilton leave during the 7th inning stretch to save a puppy from drowning?
All these questions, and more, will be answered in today’s game thread!
