The Cubs are over .500 for the first time in a month–and that’s without Mark Prior, Kerry Wood, Aramis Ramirez, Nomar Garciaparra, and Todd Walker for extended periods. The faithful still have hope!
Joe Borowski is back and LaTroy Hawkins is gone *dance of joy*. Aramis is getting hot, Neifi Perez is making us forget about Nomar, and the bullpen is getting unexpected help from Wellemeyer, Ohman, and Wuertz.
7-1/2 games out? No problem.
