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.
Paul Maholm’s offense didn’t make up for his pitching.
Get a pot of coffee going.
You’re probably wondering why Dale didn’t change the lineup last night when the pitcher changed. More on Jeff Samardzija’s struggles, and RizzOMG.
Frank Del Valle had an absolutely dominant game yesterday.
Bright sides in the morning…
We’ll all try to focus on something other than Anthony Rizzo (RizzOMG!).
He had decent numbers this past year, but I find the preceding three years to be more interesting.
Sveum had no illusions about the strength of his roster, apparently. Theo Epstein talks about the direction of the organization, and Anthony Rizzo pressure mounts.
Watching Javier Baez AND watching kids catch candy dropped from a helicopter? Win win.
How would Ron sound singing the Seventh Inning Stretch? How about Darryl?
Unsurprisingly, they’re being attached to Matt Garza and Ryan Dempster.
If Ian Stewart continues to miss time, shouldn’t the Cubs give Josh Vitters a look? In short: not yet.
The Cubs have saved a fair bit of money so far, which money could be used to entice later round picks or to lock down Albert Almora.
Dale Sveum won’t yet commit to getting Wells another start. Cubs/Sox didn’t have much attendance, Casey Coleman is OK, and Darwin Barney is loved.
