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.
