Some Good Cubs Updates....

Here is some news from today-

- Derrek Lee is out of the game tonight and maybe for the next couple of days with a stiff neck. The Cubs do not want to place him on the DL but it may be the right choice right now.

- According to the Tribune the Cubs will call up Randy Wells on Friday to start against the Brewers. It is likely that Scales will be sent back down to Iowa but he may stay with the team. I wonder who would be sent down?

- The Cubs called up Chad Fox and sent down Shark. Fox will provide some veteran leadership in the pen. The Cubs are also considering calling up Jeff Stevens among others if the pen can't throw strikes. I think Stevens and Waddell deserve to be with the Cubs!

I think if a lefty is brought up it will be Gaub from AA. He is by far the best lefty in the Cubs organization.

Gathright is going to be sent down.

I think Jose Ascaino should be up.

Cubs got FREEL!

They should have just held onto Vizcaino. He was doing better than we expected.

On a side note... I am living vicariously through Bobby Scales.

I know i keep complaining about the bull pen, and it's gotten worse
COTTS is now the lowest ERA 4.05. Cotts of all people. Players we let go Wood ERA 7.20, Gaudin ERA 4.08, Howry ERA 3.97, Ohman ERA 5.00 Even Veal ERA 4.15 and Gallagher ERA 3.86 are both relief pitchers this year. Only Wuertz ERA 1.62 is doing good. Just my 2 cents worth.
