This was a good game for us Cub fans. We needed a nice reality check to start the season.

Usually we score 10+ runs on Opening Day.
Different story today. Good sign?

Just throwing this out there but in the future it might be easier to do individual game threads. Eventually when this forum gains popularity there will be 15-20 pgs per game, but Im fine with series threads as well.

If anybody wants to create a new game thread for game 2, we'll sticky it and unsticky this one.

Yeah 6 pages is probably good enough to make single game threads.

Bleed Cubbie Blue Postgame Report:
http://bleedcubbieblue.com/section/Recaps
Opening Day 2005: the Cubs score sixteen runs and beat the Diamondbacks and everyone cheers wildly! And the Cubs go on to ... have a mediocre season.

Opening Day 2006: the Cubs score sixteen runs and beat the Reds and everyone cheers wildly! And the Cubs go on to ... have an even worse season than they did when they scored 16 runs on Opening Day the previous year.

And so, I don't think we should be too concerned that the Cubs lost to the Reds 5-1 today to begin a new season, because it's only one game, and even though they seemed to fall into the bad old habits of last year (too many walks, hacking away, mediocre defense), this team isn't last year's team.
