I will be watching this one on the ol' I reckon, so we'll see what happens. Since Lee's injury, we've performed reasonably well at 3-3, but we'll need another week or two in order to fully understand just how his absence affects this team. We have a potentially tricky next month on the schedule, including 7 games against the Padres [4 away, 3 home], and a series against the White Sox at Comiskey.

I'm just glad that we should have Lee, Wood AND Prior back for the month of June, where the shit really could hit the fan [@ St. Louis x 3, @ Houston x 3, vs. Detroit x 3, @ Cleveland x 3, @ Minnesota x 3, vs. Houston x 3, vs. Milwaukee x 4]. That stretch should just about decide the Cubs' fate.

Regardless, maybe I'll liveblog today if work doesn't grab me by the throat and try to steal my milk money.

By June, Wade Miller is supposed to be back too (Rothschild estimated June 1st). Wood ought to be back early in May, and it looks like Prior is about two weeks behind him.

Until then, we get some good looks at Guzman and Marshall. One of them ought to remain in the rotation until Miller is back (and if Marshall or Guzman do very well, maybe Miller ought to be bullpen reinforcement/swingman).

It's all about June, that month will indeed make or break us. As for Lee being back in June, that's doubtful. He went out on the 20th, gone for 8 - 10 (some estimates have been as high as 12) weeks so that puts him back in the lineup in mid to late June if we're lucky. Do they not teach math in Liverpool?

Not really, but they obviously teach you how to be a dick in Muncie, IN.

So that's nice.
