Short Hop

Reed Johnson's back continues to give him troubles. Johnson took an anti-inflamatory injection on Thursday and is now expected to be placed on the DL on Monday or Tuesday.

With Eric Patterson going 1-2 through 7 innings played tonight, including his first career HR, 2 runs scored, 2 Ribs, and 2 BBs, in addition to his great game on Saturday, will EPat now get to stick around a while longer? Or will the Cubs still send EPat down for Sean Marshall and bring back Daryl Ward off the DL sooner than expected? We'll see tomorrow-but after watching Patterson play his heart out again tonight-ya gotta root for da kid.
