A trio of big-name injuries popped up, and inspired a tour around the injury-ravaged NL Central.
Baez moves down to seventh against a righty.
Interesting comments from Gammons on the current level of “urgency” exhibited by Cubs position players.
Two catcher and two-right hander pitchers. Whom to choose … whom to choose?

Who’s ready for a ton of baseball?
Baseball is Fun: Dude! What a catch!
23 games in 23 days later this year, and with tough travel in the middle. Gulp.
Another potential quality relief arm, and a big-time catching prospect emerging.

Makeup is August 30.
Just win and score a lot of runs and don’t allow a lot of runs and steal lots of bases and don’t make any errors … ok?
Zobrist has discussed things over with the league and his union, and they may be working towards an agreement.
Excuse me, waiter? I’ll have another arm please. Thanks.
Which means no Kyle Schwarber tonight.

When one prospect gets bumped, a whole lot of other things happen – as was the case with Vimael Machin.
The bats were really good at kicking off the inning! … and that’s it.
What a freaking catch!
