Who cares if the wins are coming against crappy teams? Just keep ’em coming.

Thoughts from Theo Epstein and Dale Sveum, and thoughts on the importance of this kind of thing.
Mostly good news from the injury front. No bad news, at least.
Too many topics today for there to be one lead item. And I didn’t even mention Jeff Samardzija’s boo-boo finger.

Anthony Rizzo went off. And there was much rejoicing.
Scott Feldman’s not going to find a better time to get his season rolling.
This Is It: You’ve Got Three Hours Left to Join the Free BN Fantasy Contest to Win Cash Money, Honey
