The Cubs go for the sweep! Sort of. It’s an early one today.

We’ve heard for years about the sub-standard player facilities at Wrigley Field. They aren’t just hurting Cubs players, they’re hurting the Cubs’ free agency efforts.
Wells didn’t do much with his chance this time around, but Maine was pretty good.
Samardzija was the best the Reds have seen all year. Ian Stewart makes gods pay, Tony Campana could steal 100 bases, and maybe Ryan Dempster will be re-signed.
It was a full-on Shark Attack tonight, as Jeff Samardzija dominated the Reds.
It’s Shark versus the Hair, round two. That is to say, they’ll try again tonight.
The latest on possible tradable Cubs pieces like Matt Garza, Geovany Soto, Carlos Marmol, and more.
Getting LaHair and Anthony Rizzo together in the lineup would be the goal. Carlos Marmol needs more work, Brett Jackson will probably succeed, and some ugly Cespedes business.
Storms are headed toward Cincinnati … from the Cubs’ bats! No, actually, they’re just regular storms.
The 8-15 record is bad enough, but a number of individual performances were also disappointing. At least the Cubs’ expected record was 9-14.
When schedules change in 2013, interleague play could look very different.
Stone talks Garza, LaHair, Soriano, Soto, and more. Kerry Wood is due back soon, Chris Volstad has bad luck, and Junior Lake has a bad back.
Well, it’s about as disappointing as a road split against a playoff team can get.
The Cubs are up 2-1 in the series with the chance to pull down the series win. It would help if Chris Volstad could put together a strong start.
But will he reach free agency? And, if he does, will the Cubs go after him? Here’s hoping the answers are yes and yes.
