Update Friday: Harden said he will make at least 1 more star before the season ends.
Pitcher Rich Harden may miss the rest of the season due to coaches decision. Pinella said he will miss his next start in which Tom Gorzelanny will start in place for Harden and there is a pretty good chance he may miss his next start after that. Also Pinella said he will try to get Harden to pitch his schedule last start of the season.
Outfielder Milton Bradley left today's game with knee inflammation and pitcher Angel Guzman (triceps) is still not ready but could be ready at the end of the Cardinals series. He could be done for the remainder on the season (my opinion).
Pinella was asked if Ryan Theriot will be the leadoff man in 2010 and he hesitated by saying Theriot can hit 1st, 2nd and 8th in the lineup. Bruce Levine was another reporter who reported that the Cubs will be on a heavy pursuit for utility man Chone Figgins along with the White Sox, Angels and many other teams. Figgins is going to make money with all these teams after him.
Zambrano said yesterday he will not waive his not trade cause and will stay in the windy city next year.
Naples, Florida is trying to steal the Cubs from Mesa, Arizona. If the Cubs do no get a new stadium in Mesa they will be tempted to move to Florida or somewhere else in Arizona. The Cubs usually always draw the most attendance in Mesa and make the most money, I don't see why they won't get a new stadium. I say they get a new stadium and stay in Mesa because if they don't they won't be playing in Mesa in the near future.
I will keep you posted as always.
