| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

PHOENIX — For the first time since 2001, the Cubs will open the season at Wrigley Field in a National League Central showdown against the Milwaukee Brewers, according to a tentative 2008 schedule released by the Brewers.

The Cubs and Brewers are also tentatively scheduled to close the season against each other, which sets up what could be a pivotal series between two teams that figure to return much of their talent from 2007. The Cubs and Brewers were the only NL Central teams to finish with winning records this season.

The last time the Cubs opened a season at home was in 2001, when they fell 5-4 in 10 innings against the Montreal Expos.

The Cubs have yet to release their tentative schedule for 2008.

I only hope that the Cubs reserve the first Sunday in April for Zambrano's first start! you know --- "Zambrano Sunday" as in, "don't worry, we've got Zambrano going Sunday in game 4."
