A Split Ain't Shit...

But it isn't great, either.

2004 has proven to be a very strange and adventure filled experience for
this member of the WP writing "team" (I use the term loosely since co-writer
John hasn't really contributed). Marriage, 2 trials, a ski vacation, and
now the trials and tribulations of a home purchase have all conspired to
make contributions to the site very difficult. It isn't an excuse, of
course, but it's at least an explanation.

So I find myself sitting at O'Hare, waiting for my 1 1/2 hour delayed flight
to Boston, ruminating about the state of the Cubs. Today's 12-3 victory,
courtesy of Carlos Zambrano (7-2), restored some measure of my sanity, but
the Cubs' world remains in tumult.

A withering run of injuries has caused and / or contributed to the
collective Cub doldrums, including ill-timed injuries to Sammy Sosa and
Kerry Wood and the revelation of what we already knew - that JoeBo was
trying to pitch on a bad wing. What one has to hope is that the worst has
passed - with the best left to come.

With life returning to general sanity soon, good things are already on the
horizon. Sammy (miraculously) has agreed to rehab at West Tennessee and
appears close to being back (although Todd Hollandsworth has done an
exemplary job in Sammy's absence.) Kerry is close to being back in the
rotation (and has received a clean bill of health from Lewis Yocum and James
Andrews) but Kerry is still uncomfortable on full extension. With Ryan
Dempster pitching well at Lansing, his return is also imminent. The
upshot? A full pitching staff for the stretch run will bode well for the
Cubs' chances, although the Cubs nation is holding it's collective breath.

Pilot just gave us clearance to go - more Sunday.
