GameCast: April 13th - Rockies vs. Cubs opening day

Cubs vs. RockiesTed Lilly (1-0, 9.00 ERA) vs. Ubaldo Jiminez (1-0, 0.00 ERA)

Story-lines
It's opening day at beautiful, water-soaked, mud-filled, weather-worn Wrigley Field.  Will the Cubs continue their early season success?  Will Ted Lilly remember not to throw meat balls during games?  Let's find out!

Who's Hot
Pretty much everybody but Derrek Lee.  In a moment of sanity today, Lou has moved Derrek down the lineup.  But in a startling reversal, Lou only moved him to cleanup.  (Because that's where I want to bat the guy with the .080 AVG.  In the cleanup spot.) 

Ryan Theriot - now batting .524 on the season.  He's not just getting a hit per game, he's getting multiples.

Who's Not
Kevin Gregg - It would probably be easier on Cub fans everywhere for Gregg to just draft a letter to Lou via Gregg's agent requesting that he not be the closer, because the jackass is pitching like he doesn't want to be the closer!  Man up, Gregg!  Get 'er done, or get out of the way!
