The Good

  • 16 runs, the most ever for the Cubbies on opening day.
  • Derrek Lee. Today: 4 hits, 2 doubles, 1 homer, 5 rbis. April 2004: 17 hits, 2 homers, 11 rbis.
  • Dusty Baker wisely pulls a struggling Zambrano after pitch 106 despite being one out shy of qualifying for the W.
  • Patterson walks!
The Bad
  • Times Zambrano ran the count to 3 balls, 2 strikes: 7.
  • Zambrano walks in a run before leaving.
  • Zambrano gets ejected while leaving. Temper, kid!
The Snuggly
  • Cubs' place in the NL Central after game one: first.
