Can the Cubs seriously overcome the loss of ARam for 6 weeks?

 Injuries to star players happen all the time and some of the time the team stricken with the loss of star players overcome and have success. Take last year's Cubs for example who had to deal with...

Gathright Traded To Orioles For Freel.

According to the Baltimore sun, the Cubs have amazingly not only traded Gathright but have actually gotten a decent player back in return who will undoubtedly fit this team better than Gathright. I still think that the Cubs will dangle maybe Miles out there for maybe a bullpen arm.

 This really is a tough choice for me and which team I'd like to see win the Wild Card. Not because I'm worried about either one, but for other devious reasons.  On one hand, if the Mets win the...
