Cubs notes: Wood is fine (Thank God), Borowski throwing (Cubs.com)
Something funny: Don't call him "Lusty Baker" any time soon (Sun-Times)
Nomar takes the easier surgery road (Sun-Times)

I love Z-bravo in this matchup. He's pitching like a man possessed (and probably is), not to mention the fact that Milton loves HRs: giving them up, not hitting them, that is. He's given up 198 HRs in a 7 year career, including 43 in 201 IP (ERA: 4.75), 2nd most in the Major Leagues (Seattle's Jamie Moyer allowed 44 HRs in 2004). The Cubs are hitting well and should continue to against Milton.
