Today the 2009 edition of the Chicago Cubs-St. Louis Cardinals rivalry kicks off at Wrigley Field. this will be a four game series. I mentioned last year that a friend of mine and me have a tradition with these series. I have two baseball cards, one of Derrek Lee and one of Albert Pujols, that are our traveling trophies. Should the Cardinals win three of these games, I have to send the cards to him. If they each win two, the cards stay here. The starting pitchers will be Sean Marshall for the Cubs and Adam Wainwright for the Cardinals. Marshall has had some success against the Cardinals. He is 2-1 with an ERA of 3.38 against them. On the other hand, The Cubs have dominated Mr. Wainwright, who is 1-3 and has a 6.10 ERA against the Cubs. So far this year the Cardinals are 7-3 and the Cubs are 5-3. Of course when these two are involved their record doesn't matter. They bring out the best in each other.

Yesterday the Cubs ran up against Jason Marquis, who had pitched for them the last two years. He pitched well and hit a bases loaded single to drive in two runs. The Rockies won 5-2.
Winthrop J. Quiggy was right. Negative numbers are less than zero.
Today's question is Grade 1/Science.

How many horns did the triceratops dinosaur have on its head?

I knew this one. 75-15.
