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!
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.
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.
