Did you know that, in four minor league rehab starts, Johnny Cueto had an ERA of, like, seven? The Chicago Cubs offense is, once again, the cure to what ails you. It turns out that yesterday’s unbelievably un-Cub-like victory was not the start of something new – it was merely another in a long line of God’s hateful teases.
At least Ryan Dempster was solid again. And Jeff Samardzija continues to look good (in addition to getting good results; I’m saying he affirmatively looks like an actual good reliever).
