With Kyuji Fujikawa going on the 15 day DL because of a forearm issue, Steve Clevenger injured swinging the bat and scheduled for an MRI today (oblique), and Scott Feldman to skip a start because of something wonky in his back, the Cubs now have 8 guys out with injury.
Even if he's still on the team, it'a actually 9 if you count Marmol's mind.
So up comes Rafael Dolis and either Shawn Camp or James Russel will close.
Remember "depth at pitching"?
Cubs lose another close one to the Giants 2-3 yesterday with one more game to go in this 4-game series: Edwin Jackson v Tim Lincecum at 1:20.
Somebody told me it's gonna be 70 today too, which ought to benefit all but especially Jackson who had the 5 walks in his last start v the Brewers.
Dioner Navarro has pinch-hit homers in the last two games - one from the right and one from the left.
Struggling Brent Lillibridge has one hit and no walks in 24 at-bats for a slash of .042/.042/.042.
Darwin Barney's gashed knee - please heal!
Monday we get to pay taxes and the Cubs get a day off before the Texas Rangers come to town for a 3 gamer.
And I'll be in the office today with Emily's radio on.
