Anthony Rizzo Cannot Fly, Does Not Shoot Lasers Out of His Eyes, Will Not Retroactively Save the Titanic
It’s OK to be excited about finally getting to see the Cubs’ top prospect, but for his good – and your own – keep those expectations in check.
Paul Sullivan says Sveum “needs to be a little more forthcoming with the media when it comes to dispensing information.”
McNeil’s bonus is expected to be right around slot.
Anthony Rizzo offers his first awesome quote. Alfonso Soriano talks batting order, Ryan Dempster will miss another start, and Dale Sveum has noticed Brett Jackson’s strikeouts.

The utility player will return to AAA where he’ll probably draw quite a few more starts.
The Mets kicked the ball around enough for the Cubs to win even if Travis Wood hadn’t been great. But he was.
The Cubs face yet another lefty tonight, Johan Santana.
Byrd was recently released by the Red Sox.
By all accounts, he’s on his way to Chicago.
Dempster is recovering well, and could be ready to go when his DL stint is up this weekend.

The list is probably considerably longer than that, in overall interest. Garza’s actually been pretty darn good this year.
