How to get Jeff Samardzija with a Gatorade shower. Starlin Castro won’t change, CubsCon dates, and the final long homestand of the year.

The new schedule’s increasing unbalance within and out of division could prove a boon to the Cubs.
The final decisions on Low-A and High-A are forthcoming. Dave Sappelt, Travis Wood, and Carlos Marmol are all playing well.
A little more interleague play, a little less White Sox, and a tough close to the season.
This is of particular interest because 2013 is the first season with 15 teams in each league.
Was it Castro’s fault that he didn’t score last night when Dave Sappelt was thrown out at third?
The Cubs’ young first baseman says he never lost consciousness and just feels a little sore.
The Cubs are now expected to re-up with Boise, but not Peoria. Alfonso Soriano continues to impress, and so does Jaye Chapman (in a limited sample).
That includes AAA manager Dave Bialas, and A-ball manager Casey Kopitzke.
The Cubs’ second baseman just took down another record of Ryne Sandberg’s.
His season ended last night with a bang. The good kind. The Cubs’ rotation is now … an interesting mix.
Brett Jackson says he’d run through a wall for the Cubs. Jeff Samardzija isn’t thrilled about being shut down, and Dale Sveum doesn’t mind pouring it on.
Samardzija’s start tomorrow will be his last of the season. It’s the right move.
Dale Sveum named only nine names that he sees as locks for the 2013 Opening Day roster. A couple prominent names were missing.
Players will want to come to Chicago, DeRosa says. The only question is when the Cubs will be willing to spend money on them.
