First Game of the Season Open Thread: Cubs vs Cardinals

It's a weird thing being excited for baseball being back only to have the game be between the Cubs and Cardinals.

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

Opening Day and the Brewers' first game of the season is tomorrow, but baseball is back tonight. As it so happens, this game happens to be between division rivals of the Brewers as the Cubs and Cardinals take on one another in the decimated remains of the under-construction Wrigley Field.

Feel free to use this thread to discuss the game. Or music. The nice weather we're having. Probably the game, though.

First pitch is at 7:05, CT. Here are the lineups:
