From the Chicago Tribune -
Rick Morrisey of the Tribune says "Fair or Not, Chicago Cubs' failures are Jim Hendry's fault".
A poll of major league players conducted by Sports Illustrated has Lou Piniella as the least popular manager in baseball.
Upon learning of the Tribune fan poll, which had 57% of fans saying that Carlos Zambrano should be waived, Zambrano joked "Fine trade me to Boston".
Now for some good news, Aramis Ramirez will begin his rehab stint Friday with Class A Kane County. Also, top prospect Josh Vitters has been promoted to High A Daytona (too bad he can't help this year).
From the Chicago Sun Times -
Carol Slezak is calling this the Last Stand for lost Lou and saying that the Cubs must fire Piniella if he can't reclaim the team by the All-Star break.
Milton Bradley may take a break.
BleedCubbieBlue.com asks the question "the Pirates are dealing, why can't the Cubs?"
