Well, Cashner has to go on the Disabled List. Worse than that, Wells has to as well, meaning that only 3 of our 5 starters are healthy. Casey Coleman will fill one of the slots in the rotation until they return, and James Russell will more than likely take the other.
To make things worse, the Cubs lost today. But Aramis Ramirez and Alfonso Soriano each went deep as the Cubs lost 6-4, and Dempster earned his second loss of the season.
Pittsburgh won, so the Cubs have fallen to third place.
