Don’t come back in the 8th only to lose in the 9th. Just don’t. My wee little heart can’t take it.

But will Colvin actually get some starts?
Taking a look around the Cubs’ minor leagues to highlight some of the better prospects. If nothing else, it’ll give you something related to the Cubs to be excited about.
Garza threw yesterday, and came out clean on the other side. He could be back in time to face the Cardinals.
Details on LeMahieu’s promotion and expected role, thoughts from Rudy Jaramillo on the Cubs’ (lack of) patience, and the legend of Tony Campana grows…
The injury plague continues, and Blake DeWitt will now see some starts in left field.
With the wind blowing out, the Astros managed four homers. The Cubs managed to make me puke.
The Chicago Cubs welcome the Astros to town to close out the last winnable nine-game stretch they’ll have for a long time (a DOOM stretch begins on Friday, but we’ll get there when we get there). A series win means the Cubs went 5-4 during the stretch – the bare minimum for me to have any hope at all.
God remains wrathful and the Cubs remain confusing about their prospect strategy.
Ryan Dempster looked good again, the big three in the bullpen did their jobs, and Aramis Ramirez actually showed some power.
Protip: If you want to remain healthy and on a Major League roster, don’t play center field for the Chicago Cubs.
Soon we’ll need a daily post dedicated solely to injuries. Info on Matt Garza’s and Geovany Soto’s returns, Reed Johnson and Jeff Baker’s aches, and Randy Wells’ and Casey Coleman’s futures.
And the hopes of a series win against the Pirates (finally) end with a whimper.
Carlos Zambrano’s TV is trying to kill him, Casey Coleman is a goner, Marlon Byrd is nervous, and Robert Coello goes back to being a guy you’ve never heard of.
Lopez is the next in an endless line of embarrassing replacement options for the beleaguered Cubs rotation. Huzzah.
Does it ease your ire if I tell you that, on paper, this was the one game the Cubs looked likely to lose? Didn’t think so…
