Scott Feldman. Today’s your day. You’re on your way.
Providing context for some of the more interesting numbers in the minor league season so far.
Dale Sveum is as fed up with the fundamental lapses as we are, but unfortunately seems equally at a loss for what to do about it.
Mistakes aplenty, once again.
Greet the rookie angrily, Cubs.
Garza’s outing went well, Stewart and Fujikawa are doing fine, and Baker and Vizcaino remain mysteries.
With Ian Stewart coming back in a week, and just one backup infielder on the roster, something’s gotta give.
The Cubs lose, which sucks. But at least the game provided one of the most insane plays you’ll ever see.
Friday night fights.
The 27-year-old outfielder has been an oft-discussed player this week.
The Wrigley renovation and Sammy Sosa’s boombox.
More folks are saying that collegiate pitchers Mark Appel and Jonathan Gray are the clear top two players at the top of the draft.
Miller Park isn’t quite the Wrigley Field North that it used to be.
Carlos Villanueva has pitched as well as he’s groomed this year. Takahashi outrighted to AAA, and Shawn Camp says he feels healthy.
Luke is back, and the scoring is up.

Not sure I get the Julio Borbon chatter. Alfonso Soriano isn’t ready to go, and Matt Garza isn’t ready to talk about his contract until he pitches.
The weather ain’t looking good for today’s game, either. But they’ll try and make this one happen.
Doing so could afford the Cubs significant federal tax credits during the renovation process.
