  • Former Cub GM Dallas Green can't see the light when it comes to a Jumbotron at Wrigley Field.
  • Here's a look at the organizational depth at second base.
  • Is Jeff Samardzija just pressing? Beyond that link, take a look at Shark's stats: they're really close to his numbers for last season. His ERA is up and he's walking another half a batter per nine innings. Everything else is very comparable. It should be intriguing to see how the rest of the season plays out as Shark marches toward 200 innings pitched.
