Oh Dusty. Sigh. The Cubs are expected to call up three more today and a couple more soon thereafter. Andrew Cashner is officially back, Starlin Castro loves shortstop, and Brett Jackson loves America.

That’s why he’s not playing in the Arizona Fall League.
Tom Ricketts will be meeting with Wilken in a couple weeks to discuss both the farm system and Wilken’s contract.
Randy Wells is pitching well, but people keep asking about 2010. Carlos Marmol remains the Cubs’ closer, Oneri Fleita speaks about his extension, and Bryan LaHair and Tony Campana perform.
The Cubs avoid the sweep.
Is Tom Ricketts assuming the baseball presidency?
Derrek Lee exacts revenge, the bullpen had been excellent, Casey Coleman is fighting, Bryan LaHair is sitting, and Carlos Pena is loving on Carlos Zambrano.
Mike Quade believes Bryan LaHair could “make it,” though Quade’s almost never going to start him. Andrew Cashner will be back soon, Carlos Zambrano will not, and Daytona Cubs are getting hip.
No one was expecting him to return to the Cubs any time soon, but neither were we expecting to hear this kind of announcement from the Cubs until later in September.
If Ramirez is going to return at all, he wants multiple years. Andrew Cashner is good to go, Ryne Sandberg wants a big league job, Kerry Wood is an auctioneer, Derrek Lee is making me sad.
If the Cubs don’t want to win next year, Soriano says, they should trade him to a team with a chance to make the playoffs.
A Cubs prospect gets suspended for the second time, Bryan LaHair is coming up, Andrew Cashner throws again today, Starlin Castro is ok, and Jeff Samardzija has lustrous hair.
Matt Garza is cold-blooded, CJ Wilson is gonna get paid, Tom Ricketts is doing some hiring, Ron Santo and Pat Hughes are up for an award, and the Cubs’ 2005 draft was shockingly bad.
Randy Wells is turning it on at the right time, Andrew Cashner struck out the side, Mike Quade doesn’t know if Brett Jackson will be called up, and Shawon Dunston clearly wanted his son to sign with the Cubs.
And, if Rozner actually believes what he’s written, I’d venture a guess that Rozner, himself, is not a “smart guy.”
He could be a cheap 4th/5th outfielder, but comes with risks. Phil Rogers says Wrigley isn’t getting the All-Star Game, Andrew Cashner could be back later this week, and Rudy Jaramillo hates day games.
Cubs expect Cashner to pitch in Arizona Fall League, Mike Quade just doesn’t get it, Brett Jackson’s immediate future is still unclear, and Tyler Colvin is trying to improve.
But there’s actually good explanation. Darwin Barney says the defense will improve, Ryan Dempster is a pitching coach, Andrew Cashner had a perfect outing, and Jim Hendry is still a nice guy.
The expectation is that, while the renovations will not be complete by 2014, they will be done by 2016.
