Starlin Castro's coming back on Wednesday, and maybe even Ian Stewart on Thursday.
So, you know, just be done with the injuries and...play.
Cubs beat the DBacks 7-5 with Darwin Barney knocking in the winning runs and 1st baseman Steve Clevenger going 3 for 4 and knocking in 3.
Jeff Samardzija hit a homer and went 4 something innings and gave up 4 runs, 2 of 'em homers.
Usually about this time of year, we're reading about how that dry AZ weather messes with the pitches - no air for the breaking balls to grab and stuff.
So it's nice to read that Samardzija's feeling good and even with the giving up the homers...I'd rather he feel like it's coming together for him more than dwell on results in a ST game.
What am I saying - they won, right?
I also read that newly signed for 6 years and 150 mil Dodger starter Zach Grienke has an inflamed elbow.
Of all those Dodger signings, if I'm a Dodger fan this really gets my attention.
Garza's got the little lat thing and they play it down and the next thing you know a month goes by...
Which is more than just a joke since it's also opening day.
Life will get normal and nice again.
