At last, a break. Maybe.
John Smoltz, who has beaten the Cubs like the proverbial drum for years (15-5, 3.33, 8 saves lifetime), had his scheduled start today pushed back to Tuesday -- which means he should start against the Cubs next Sunday in Atlanta.
But for today, it's Lance Cormier. I think I'd rather face a guy with a 12-12, 5.72 career mark coming off a rehab assignment than a future Hall of Famer. Wouldn't you?
I also expect Felix Pie to be recalled to -- presumably -- start today's game.

That preview was written by "MIKE VOTTA, STATS Senior Writer". Glad he bothered to check facts that took me about two minutes of baseball-reference.com mouse clicks to find.
MLB.com Mediacenter -- although, if being nationally televised on WGN wasn't bad enough yesterday, today's game is on BOTH WGN and TBS.
