Dempster is recovering well, and could be ready to go when his DL stint is up this weekend.
Lukewarm Stove: At Least Six Teams Hot for Matt Garza, Including the Braves, Tigers, Cardinals, Red Sox, Blue Jays, and Royals
The list is probably considerably longer than that, in overall interest. Garza’s actually been pretty darn good this year.
After a couple revenue-generating concerts destroyed the grass at Wrigley, some wonder if the Cubs have their priorities straight. Also, more smoke on a Tuesday debut for Anthony Rizzo.
If you ignore Brett Jackson’s frightening strikeout pace, he’s absolutely on fire.
That’s a sweep, folks. The wrong kind.
The Cubs will try to avoid the sweep.
Rizzo could be called up halfway through the Met series to avoid Johan Santana. Dale Sveum he’s never been around a player receiving as much hype as Rizzo. Great.
Pitcher Rafael Diplan is starting inch closer to our prospect radar.

Get a pot of coffee going.

Frank Del Valle had an absolutely dominant game yesterday.
Bright sides in the morning…
