It Had to Be Done: Edwards to Iowa, Montgomery to Injured List (Update: Webster and Ryan Coming Up?)

Chicago Cubs

As we discussed this morning, Carl Edwards Jr.’s struggles go back far beyond this season, but the extent to which he looked completely out of whack reached a new level this past week.
