Cubs In Haiku: Cubs 9, Brewers 5


A fine homecoming
Nady, Baker and A-Ram
All hit the long ball
It would be nice if the Cubs weren't relying so much on home runs, but it's exciting when you see three of 'em in person on Opening Day.  There was even some nifty baserunning by Ryan Theriot, who stole two bases and (according to the fans in Section 102) was robbed of a third.  

The weather? Perfect.
Bullpen? Certainly improved.
The damage? Lee's thumb.
Samardzija surprised with a perfect 8th inning after James Russell got Ryan Dempster out of a jam in the 7th; Marmol escaped after a walk and hit batter when a line drive by Jim Edmonds led to a game-ending double play.   Oh, yeah ... Derrek Lee is day-to-day with a thumb injury, but for some reason that doesn't worry me too much.
We ditched work (and school)
To spend the day at Wrigley
