They were talking about moving him there a couple of years ago, but when I heard no more, I assumed that they dropped the idea.

Brennen Davis might have gotten caught in the bathroom.  The Dodgers broadcaster announced him as a pinch hitter for Alfonso Rivas, but Rivas hit.  cubs.com also showed Davis.

Well the Indians hitters he was going against definitely looked ready.

When Jonathan Holder pitches, I can't help but think that he's a relative of Jim Hendry.

Maples with the most impressive 4 run inning I have ever seen.

From anybody, or just him?

He didn’t walk anybody and had decent control. He gave up a broken bat infield single a ground ball fielders choice to second that didn’t get an out and an error at third before giving up a home run.

If they...

...start Wick out on an IL...
...keep Maples...
...don't cut any of the veteran unoptionables...
...carry 14 pitchers...
...don't take any of the "kids"...

...there will be five rostered pitchers fighting for two spots.

Adam, Holder, Ryan, Stewart, Wieck.  Plus the NRIs.

The MLBN telecast will be on a delayed basis - 7:00 in Chicago.  They usually use the home team's announcers.

Miller has struck out every batter he has faced so far.
