Game 5 Open Thread: Phillies at Cubs

"Who's starting for the Cubs today?""Samardzija.""Gesundheit."

Jonathan Daniel

If there's one tweet that sums up how I feel about the Cubs and their day games, it's this one:

Preach, Rad Goggles Dog.

It's redemption time for Cliff Lee. After Monday's putrid Opening Day start, now we get to see him turn back into the Cliff Lee we know and love. Because that is exactly what is going to happen. The power of positive thinking!

Lee and the rest of the Phillies lineup (which includes both Jimmy Rollins and Wil Nieves) will face off against Cubs righty Jeff Samardzija, whose last name both looks and sounds like a noise you make when you sneeze.

Discuss the game in the comments below.
