Who would have thought, two weeks ago, that we'd all be looking to Rich Hill to be the rotation "stopper"?
That is exactly where we find ourselves this morning, after four straight losses, the last three by two runs or less. Time to end this losing. And, don't worry about Bronson Arroyo -- he can only hit if Glendon Rusch is pitching.
Bruce Miles reports on various Cub injuries (already? Couldn't they have at least waited till May?) -- x-rays on Aramis Ramirez' wrist were negative, and though Mark DeRosa's back prevented him from starting yesterday, he did play. This article has the dire subhead "Third baseman to miss several games due to swelling", but the body of the article says he's "day-to-day", so who knows?
Oh, and The Employee is hurt again. To which I say, "Who cares?"
