citi field metsI miss David DeJesus already. The fact that he probably wouldn’t be playing against a lefty today is beside the point.

DeJesus hit the DL today, and Shawn Camp is coming off the DL to take his roster spot. That means the Cubs will have 13 pitchers for at least a little while – that’s eight in the bullpen and just four on the bench.
