You may have noticed -- and if you haven't, hie yourself on down to the bottom of the right sidebar and check it out -- a new BCB feature, "Cubs Newsfeed". This is an automatically-updating feed service that will compile a number of relevant articles from various newspapers and other online sources. I had the tech gurus set it up so that each link will open a new browser window so you won't navigate away from BCB!

vs. LA -- vs. Cubs
This should be a good time for Z to get back on track. He has a 1.80 lifetime ERA vs. the Dodgers, in seven starts, though only two decisions (1-1). Lowe faced the Cubs twice last year, his only two times facing them, and is also 1-1, with a 3.86 ERA. Derrek Lee is 6-for-12 lifetime vs. Lowe -- but five of the six outs are strikeouts.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
