Any two months you might get of a player – even a great player – might leave you disappointed.

When the Cubs have six starting pitchers ready to go, how will they proceed? How could you bump Mike Montgomery if he’s pitching so well?
Kyle Schwarber’s defensive value continues to surprise people. Mostly opposing base runners.
I don’t really have a big problem with how the game was managed last night.
Lester is outperforming his Cy Young finalist season. Also: get those Cubs bats feeling sexy.
A well-timed leap in performance from Wilson and some great fill-in appearances by the back-end guys has saved the Cubs pen.
And Baez’s strikeout rate is skyrocketing as a result.
It can’t be like this every time Torres doesn’t something well.
The Cubs have some big series coming up, but they’ve set themselves up nicely.
I think that’s a good thing! I’m comforted! Slightly!
Montgomery was brilliant again yesterday. When Yu Darvish returns, how on earth could you justify bouncing Montgomery from the rotation?
The Cubs’ offense is in a slump, but is it partly a design problem?
The Kris Bryant slump is very real, and it’s causing him to explode from time to time behind the scenes. Nothing wrong with that. And no worries here.
In the air, against lefties, hard contact … you name it, Heyward’s doing it.
Hopefully it doesn’t persist into this Brewers series.
With so many balls in play, you wouldn’t always expect to have been as successful as Montgomery was.
Maybe they can see things that are harder to see on the outside, because from the outside, it was a bit scary.
Anthony Rizzo is plenty hot right now, my friends. Also, what a good series that was against the Phillies, and what an extreme oddity for Tommy La Stella.
It was a really close one, and a really critical play.
*beep* *beep* Don’t sleep on Bryant out there, or he’ll just take more.
Day 3 … let’s swing for the fences and fill out the system.
Sometimes, guys just lose feel and have a bad game.
Just about any way you look at it, the Cubs are better than the last check-in, and very good overall.
I am completely comfortable looking mildly stupid right now.
There’s no timetable yet for Darvish’s return, but when he comes back, there won’t be a six-man rotation.
It took the Cubs another couple months last year to get this far above .500. Just sayin’. Also, how about a six-man rotation for a bit?
