If everything goes exactly as plan and both of them feel 100% or close they will be activated off the 15 day DL tomorrow.
Ted Lilly was the only Cub to make the all-star, he was voted in by the manager Charlie Manuel.
According to Hot Stove Cubbies, the Cubs are interested in relief pitcher Matt Herges. Herges was DFA by the Indians yesterday. I will take Herges over Patton any day.
