Cubs Trivia:

The Cubs scored 16 runs on Opening Day in 2005. How many runs did they score on Opening Day the following year?

Yes folks, The Calendar was trying to be tricky: 16 is the correct answer. Nice Job.

If my memory serves me right didn't Big Z get ejected in one of these games?

Your odds of being correct are higher than they really should be with Z.

Wow. Derek Lee batted sixth on that '05 team? He was like the best hitter on the planet back then.

Not sure what year it was, but I recall, Dunn looking ridiculous in the outfield one opening day. I don't say this lightly because I get that what we watch on tv is a whole different planet than what I sucked at in high school, but seriously, I could have played better than Dunn did in the outfield that day.

NOMAH!

It's also interesting to look and see how much better the 2006 and 2008 teams would have been with him over Theriot.

Never forget how excited I was when that trade was announced in 2004!!! How awesome he was in spring training the next year.... then fast forward to stlouis and him writhing in pain on the ground in the batter's box - with muscle detached from bone. Go Cubs!
