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…
The Cubs welcome the surprisingly not terrible Pittsburgh Pirates for their second Wrigley visit of the year. Here’s hoping this one plays out a little less frustratingly than the first one.
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.
