Looks like they're still playing games at Wrigley, I mean the Cubs stopped playing baseball about a week and a half ago, but they still dutifully put on the uniform and sleepwalk through 9 innings so as to pretend to make an effort. Well at least seeing Corey back up gives us something to watch for the remainder of the season. It would bring me great joy if he would return to being a useful part of this team. If we could only ship off Matt Lawton or Jeromy Burnitz and get Matt Murton some regular playing time and then find a way to get Sergio Mitre back in the rotation (I'm looking at you Maddux), we can start working on next year. In due time I suppose. And can we give Derrek Lee a day off? Is Dusty just waiting for him to actually collapse on the ballfield before he realizes he could use a day of rest? Because I would very much like for him to muster up one more hot streak and make a run at the Triple Crown. Harang made us look silly last time and a look at his peripherals say that he's a MUCH better pitcher then the ERA and win/loss record show. For you folks who play fantasy baseball, keep an eye out for him next year. Chances are that ERA is a result of a whole lot of bad luck and bad defense which tends to equal itself out in ensuing seasons. Prior tries not to suck as much as he did in Philly and maybe he's got another 16 K game in him like last Septemeber versus the Reds. Amusingly enough the opposing starter that day was Aaron Harang. Go Korey!!!

"I'm confused, Dusty is an "IDIOT!!!" because CPAT is batting 8th instead of 7th?"

Adam,

The reason I called Dusty an idiot is because part of CP's problem is he has not had one spot in the lineup where he bats on most days. Two games up and two differnt spots in the lineup. He needs to pick one spot and keep him there. In Iowa he was the 2 hitter everyday I went to see a box score and he did a good job there. He needs to a 7th hitter in MLB.

Umm...no, that was not his problem at all. His problem was that he swing at everything in sight. His approach at the plate was terrible. It has nothing to do with where he hit in the order.

Corey needs to swing at strikes and not swing a balls. He can do this in any spot in the order.

Well said Dave :)

Lineup is in...
Murton
Walker
Lee
ARam
