Quick, how many Cubs haven't been on the DL so far this season?
Hmmm..Kerry Wood's gone with the blister, Darwin Barney's gone with a knee he injured on the awesome Slide For Victory the other night...
I guess Aramis Ramirez hasn't been injured yet, but that's going to happen don't you think?
Big Z, I thought he was almost on his way to the "Head DL" with a Big Mouth injury when he did the "embarrassment" rant, but that just turned out to be true.
I don't think Pena's been on the DL yet, but you could argue that at least his bat wasn't on the team for the first month or two.
He's been around this whole season.
So has Koyie Hill, Ryan Dempster, and Starlin Castro.
The bullpen...well it's not right to bring up the bullpen since that's where the starter replacements came from.
Like, James Russell got put in as a starter which probably injured his confidence, right?
And God only knows what happened to Scott Maine.
So you could say they've been injured...
But I guess Carlos Marmol and Sean Marshall haven't been to the DL.
Overall just spectacularly ugly, the injuries of 2011.
And because it's 2011, a year that could rank historically with some of the best Cub loss seasons, I'm not even going to bring up last night's ugly loss because A) I'm still ill and went to bed and B) I'm desperately trying to hold onto that good mood I had after two wins in a row.
Lastly, congrats to the Boston Bruins on their Stanley Cup win last night.
