Hooray, more potential injury news that the Cubs totally aren’t worried about and that totally won’t become a bigger problem!
Cubs say the neck is nothing to worry about. More on that, the Rodrigo Lopez trade, and the catching situation.
Lopez will join the Cubs tomorrow – as in, the big team. He’s got to be a better option than the Berg/Coleman/Maine connection, right? Berg will be sent to AAA in a corresponding move.
A series win! And I wasn’t even pulling my hair out for most of the game! The legend of Tony Campana grows…
Mike Quade on rain falling, Carlos Zambrano hitting, Tony Campana starting, Darwin Barney dominating, and Aramis Ramirez sucking. Also, Geovany Soto’s groin.
Chicago Cubs’ young hurler is not likely to return to the rotation if and when he’s able to make it back this season, according to GM Jim Hendry.
Terrible pitching and the rain conspired to slap the Cubs in the face.
Mesa has selected a designer and a builder for the new stadium and facilities that will keep the Chicago Cubs Springing in Arizona.
Cashner’s doctor visit, Byrd’s shutdown, Soto’s and Wells’ returns, and Jeff Baker’s groin, all lined up for you.
Jim Hendry is optimistic (obviously), and Garza himself wasn’t too happy about going on the disabled list in the first place.
Take that, fellow rudderless organization with one of the worst rosters $130 million can buy!

The Chicago Cubs head home to lick their wounds – both literal and figurative. They host the New York Mets who are not infrequently in the news for all the wrong reasons.
The 29-year-old outfielder will take Marlon Byrd’s spot in the outfield rotation, if not in our hearts.
If the Mets aren’t happy with Wright, maybe the Cubs could take him off their hands. Updates on Marlon Byrd and Geovany Soto, and a couple top prospects also feature.
