Steve Bartman, Crane Kenney and Dusty Baker - the gang's all here! Plus: White Sox Suckage On Schedule; and Bizarro Bears.
There's a myth that the Cubs can't identify and draft major-league caliber starting pitching.
As cold evidence, they watched one of their former draft picks throttle their offense in a convincing manner Wednesday night.
Zack Godley limited the Cubs to three hits in six innings to help the Diamondbacks to a 3-0 victory at breezy Wrigley Field.
-> Zack Godley spent one season in the Cubs organization; he's in his fourth season in the Diamondbacks organization.

* Pronunciation: \a-VEE-la\
* Pedro Strop is Up:
* Carl Edwards is Down:
walk and 2 hits off Edwards here. This is where yesterday's game hurts. Duensing/Wilson down. MM threw 50 on Tues.— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) August 4, 2017

- The Score's Matt Spiegel this week on the Bears' quarterback situation: I want Mike Glennon to be a Top 10 quarterback this year and maybe then deal him for a fourth-rounder, like McNair and Chandler, and then maybe Mark Sanchez will want to return as a backup next year too.

* We are at Peak Leno.
* We are now at Peak Massie.
It's like calling Bobby Massie a horrible offensive lineman. He's actually an above average run blocker, major struggles in pass pro.— Bill Zimmerman (@ZimmermanSXM) July 13, 2017
