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.
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.
