Although no one else has heard any indication that Garza could wind up on the DL, ESPN’s Bruce Levine is saying it’s possible. UPDATE: Very possible, as in, it’s happening.
Month: May 2011
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.
If you wanted some arguments and data to back up your interleague complaining, here it is. Both MLB and God appear to hate the Cubs.
Not to use it as an excuse, but, damn, the Cubs are all kinds of injured. More news on Marlon Byrd’s recovery, Jeff Baker’s groin, and Randy Wells’ rehab start.
The James Russell Experiment goes 0-5, and yet, Tim Wakefield turns out just fine as a fill-in. Go figure.
Byrd has multiple facial fractures, and Berg will add depth to the bullpen in Matt Garza’s absence.
More on Matt Garza’s elbow, Marlon Byrd’s face, and Carlos Pena’s awesomeness. Oh, and stuff about the atrocity that is the Chicago Cubs’ rotation.
A comedy of errors by the *other* team?
Never lost consciousness, but did get a pretty serious gash on his face.
Enjoy your weekend, folks.
Cashner is seeing Dr. Lewis Yocum of Mark Prior fame. Gulp.
The Green Monster sustained significant damage off the Red Sox bats tonight. So did my heart.
Setting aside his relatively poor performance and apparent lack of desire, contract quirks make a deal unlikely.
Casey Coleman’s start, Starlin Castro’s idol, and Alfonso Soriano’s defense feature today in the bullets. Also: I’m pretty sure Randy Bush still reads Bleacher Nation.
Sweep! Two games, yes. But a sweep nonetheless! I didn’t mean for that to rhyme.
Twenty-six reasons – from A to Z – to fire Chicago Cubs General Manager Jim Hendry. May it pain you as much to read as it pained me to write.
Apparently Carlos Silva isn’t returning the Cubs’ calls.
Marlon Byrd’s homer, Tyler Colvin’s future, and the direction of the Chicago Cubs feature in today’s bullets. Also: poop.
A come from behind (after blowing the lead) kind of win might just be the thing this team needed. Ah, who am I kidding? They just needed a win.
Perhaps Mike Quade should start requiring TPS reports before every at bat with runners on base. Notes on Randy Wells’ rehab, Tony Campana’s legend, and Jim Hendry’s coded message to Mike Quade.
Play a game of catch on Twitter today to help give Chicago kids some free baseballs.
If last night was a blown 4-0 lead, and tonight was a merely blown 3-0 lead, does that mean the Cubs are getting better?
The Chicago Cubs’ young pitcher aggravated the strain in his right rotator cuff, and his rehab is going to back to the beginning. Enjoy the game tonight!
Antonio Alfonseca’s five-fingered clone didn’t cut it, and now will have to toil away in the minors. Scott Maine, a lefty, probably should have made the team out of Spring Training.
Tyler Colvin’s replacement is slightly younger, slightly better defensively, quite a bit faster, but with no pop. Might be a better, you know, hitter, though.
