Twitter is down this morning. You can determine for yourself whether that's a good thing or not. UPDATE 12:40 CT -- Twitter is back. You can determine... etc. etc. etc.

The Cubs are off today, which means we have a lot of time to discuss pretty much nothing, because without a game and without a news source spilling tweet after tweet at us, there isn't much new information to discuss.

Ryan Dempster isn't saying anything:

"I had a job to do today and that's really important to me so I had to try to separate the two things," Dempster said. "I have tonight and an off-day [Thursday] to look at a couple different things and see what the possibilities are."

Theo Epstein isn't saying anything:

"We haven’t officially commented on it," Epstein told a crowd at Harry Caray's Restaurant.

"So," Esptein said before pausing, "we’re not going to start now. He pitched a very good ballgame (in a loss at Pittsburgh)."

You, on the other hand, probably still have lots to say on this issue. Since the recap thread from Wednesday's game is getting a bit slow, have at it in this one.
