Cubs Notes

Here is some notes over the past week-

- Lou has named his starters for the playoffs with Dempster getting the first game followed by Z, Harden, and Lilly.

- Lou also said Samja and Howry are in as a part of the 25 man playoff roster. Howry does not deserve to be there but it is his decision. So if we carry 11 pitchers we are looking at Z, Demp, Harden, Lilly, Wood, Marmol, Howry, Samja, Cotts, Marshall, and either Weurtz or Gaudin. With the way Weurtz pitched yesterday, I do not doubt he gets the nod. Another name to watch is how Guzman does today. He could be in the mix as well.

- There has been talks that Lou may retire after the year depending on how the Cubs do in the playoffs. Anything short of a WS title he will come back.
