Why would the Cubs even think about pulling Spellcheck?

Because they want multiple pitchers to have a part in an opening day shutout.

Ugh, it took me a full 3 innings this year to get frustrated by this team.

Hughes smokes Soriano. Easy for him to do when he knows the offense won't score today.

I'd rather have Hopeless hitting than Tabata. We know with Tabata he'll ground out softly.

The Cubs infield are all gold glovers. These things happen in a shutout.

We can only hope the Cubs bring in Marmol in the 9th

Worst part of this shutout loss will be the tweets from Dejan and his cheerleader brigade.

I don't see how they will be able to come close to last year's win total with the current team, which means they will most likely blow everything up again this year and start over. Oh the joys of being a Pirates fan.

So the pirates still can't hit. Good to know now.

Jones' bat barely moves and the Cubs appeal to 3rd. Come on. Some respect, please.

Was the pitch that GFJ struck out on as bad as gamecast made it seem?

Would have runners on 1st and 2nd for El Blimpo if Jones had any plate discipline. As it is, Blimpo's coming up with the GIDP here to end the game.

Shutout Derailment Protocol works again. Here's where Sanchez earns a derisive nickname with the GIDP.

That's over the line. (Though I've heard that Casey is a great dude.)
