Pitching well can only help the Cubs. Carlos Marmol has the closer job back, Luis Valbuena is the 3B starter, and the Cubs might carry three starters.

The Minor League Daily has a slightly different look, but the same (eh, probably more) information.
Bam, Red Sox. Bam.
I want to watch the Cubs crush the Red Sox today.
That ballpark chat? Yup. It had to do with trade possibilities. Also more on Dempster, Alfonso Soriano, Bryan LaHair, and more.
The Cubs Have Signed 4th Rounder Josh Conway, 5th Rounder Anthony Prieto, and Three Other Top Ten Picks
The Cubs have saved some money against their Draft pool, which will give them flexibility.
Castro’s got a new hitting coach, but his swing early approach might persist. Ian Stewart is seeing a specialist, and Theo Epstein is still offering thoughts.
Some cool sources of info for the Cubs’ short-season Low-A affiliate. Also: Javier Baez homered again. No big thing.
My lineup is superior to yours. You should probably not even try. Actually, no, you really should try, because it helps the site.
Hope you enjoyed your stay at Wrigley, Tigers fans.
Hello, Justin Verlander.
The Cubs’ top man remains steadfastly in Castro’s corner.
At least one scout thinks Rizzo’s gaudy AAA numbers are merely the product of him feasting on bad pitching.
Dempster and Theo Epstein have chatted. About what? Well, we might not know for sure for a while.
Ian Stewart’s disabled list stint probably won’t affect Josh Vitters’ progress at AAA Iowa.
God’s Wrath Watch: Ian Stewart Headed to the DL with Continued Wrist Soreness (UPDATE: Valbuena Coming Up)
Stewart could no longer keep fighting through the pain. Luis Valbuena is likely to take his place on the roster.
Um … the Cubs can still win the series?
