From Comcast SportsNet

  • The Cubs are hoping super prospect Javier Baez can create a buzz for the team similar to the Puig-mania the Los Angeles Dodgers are experiencing with Yasiel Puig.
  • The trade deadline picture is coming into focus for Matt Garza.
  • Theo Epstein is not taking sides in the Stanley Cup Finals between the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks. At least not publicly.
  • Starlin Castro is trying to tune out the noise to fight his way out of a slump.
  • Cincinnati Reds' manager Dusty Baker says the spat between Matt Garza and Johnny Cueto is over.

From the Chicago Sun-Times

  • David DeJesus had a chat with Johnny Cueto and says the incident is over.
  • Starlin Castro's struggles seem to coincide with Dale Sveum mentioning a possible demotion.
  • Numbers show why Castro is struggling.
  • By the way, Sun Times. You know you can update the internet at any given time, right? It's 7:30 p.m. Wednesday as I write this... and there's no game recap, or any other new content for that matter, up yet? Really?
