America, F@#k Yeah

Happy 4th. You'll have to excuse the potentially light postings over this holiday weekend. The Towel Drills's staff is going to be venturing out of their caves in the parents basements to attend various happenings in this "real world" we keep hearing about. Should be scary. I'm going to assume that most of you will be doing the same-but if you want to sit by your computer all day clicking, refresh, hey-go for it. It is, after all, a free country. And I think you should celebrate it like that.

Couple things to get up for you quick though:
  • As expected, Aramis Ramirez made his way back from the Dominican in time to help the Cubs lose, again, yesterday. And Reed Johnson was activated from the DL. To make room, Eric Patterson was optioned back to Iowa. I think Murton should have been the one to go-but Patterson's shoddy fielding in left the other day reminded Lou that he was, in fact, a rookie. The writing was on the wall there.
  • To look into my crystal ball-expect Carlos Zambrano to be activated in time to make the start tonight against St. Louis , and Jose Ascanio to likely be sent back to Iowa in the corresponding move.
  • Also-looks like Sean Gallagher is heading to the bullpen. Sean Marshall will make the start Sunday against the Cardinals and looks to continue every 5th day thereafter. Not sure I like this one-Gallagher has been pretty decent all year.
