Well, THAT didn’t end well. It didn’t start well, either. The middle was okay. Check Al’s recap for details. Welcome to second place. Pedro Strop needs to be moved down in the pitching order, stat. This is a bad trip. 5 baserunners, three of them Kris Bryant. Yuck.

Ian Happ and Ben Zobrist were covered on the front page Friday. Feel free to talk about them as things have developed a tad since then. Happ made a nice catch and played left field. Zobrist is heading to Iowa. Derek Holland is a Cub now. Cubs needed a good LOOGY bad. Tim Collins got DFA’d again.
