Wells with a crappy game tonight, but I think the Cubs have enough depth at AAA/AA to cover the bullpen when Howry and Eyre leave next year. Ceda and Blake Parker are vying to be the next Marmol 2007-May2008. Parker is one of a handful of position players the Cubs converted to RP last year.

I want to see Ceda up with the Cubs this season.

Jose Ceda
Jesse Estrada
Randy Wells
Donald Veal
Blake Parker

Mitch Atkins started his second game after being called up from AA tonight, and after getting a win in a a quality start his first game, he comes right back and does it again in his second game. He pitched 7 innings of 2 hit 1 run ball tonight for Iowa and they took the win 8-1. Wuertz pitched the 9th and gave up 1 hit and struck out 1 giving up no runs. Estrada also pitched a perfect inning. So in 2 starts in AAA this season, Mitch Atkins is 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA. Cracking start to his AAA career

Offensively, felix Pie his his 7th homer of the season but is still only hitting in the mid .200 range. Figueroa did the most damage tonight with a hit a walk and 3 RBI's. He is hitting .290 on the season. Hill Magehee and even Atkins added a RBI.

Nice win for Iowa tonight 8-1

The Iowa game only lasted 6 innings tonight before being called for rain. We did have a 3-1 lead but by the time it was called Nashville had scored 3 in the top of the 6th to take a 4-3 lead, they got the bottom in it was called as it was pouring down.

Well, since Nashville took the lead, it had to be suspended.

Yep, shame really. We were out hitting them, was pretty confident that we were going to take the lead again. Berg pitched 4 good innings before he started getting roughed up.

Not sure who is scheduled to pitch for us tomorrow.

Jeff Samardzja pitches another fantastic game and Iowa win 2-1. Jeff went 6 innings of 2 hit 1 run ball while striking out 9 and walking just one. Torres and McGehee bothn hit solo shots and thats all the big man needed

Jeff is now 4-1 with a 3.13 ERA

He really is coming on this season, he is not far off being Major League ready, his sinker is just nasty, he reminds me of Jason Marquis, just better. He has a electric fast ball to go with a devastating sinker. Can't wait until he is in our rotation. He has the make up and potential to be a ace, still needs experience but he has potential, exciting times.

Also worth mentioning that Michael Wuetz pitched a scorless 9th, allowing 0 hits while striking out 1. His first save in AAA.
