The silver lining in the Cubs' won-loss record this season is that the team has secured the #2 draft pick position. Gotta look at the positives, right? That's the spirit of a true Cubs fan!
Cubs manager Dale Sveum said, "(We're) definitely going the right direction. There are some growing pains with that, as well. We're all confident in the plan Theo (Epstein), Jed (Hoyer) and their guys are putting together. We understand where we'll get to. Sometimes it just takes some time, but we're all confident in the procedures of it.''
Jason Berken pitched for the Cubs Monday night and allowed two runs on four hits while walking one and striking out two batters over 4.2 innings pitched.

Tomorrow Chris Volstad will start for the Cubs and try to end his season with a 4-11 record.
The Cubs and Astros will play the second game of the three-game series at 7:05pm CT at Wrigley Field. I will be at the Friendly Confines to hopefully witness the team's 61st win of the season.
