In the Notes Column today, we learn that, not only are the Cubs not making the field available tomorrow for Paulino's simulated game (with no explanation listed. Jerks.), but he's still not 100%.
"I feel all right; not 100 percent. I don't want to hurry up. I want to take it day by day."
Also, Matt Lindstrom is okay with not being the closer for the rest of 2010:
"Maybe next year. Right now it's not really a goal of mine, considering we only have 25 games left. I just want to be a factor...
...It goes from knowing when you're going to throw to not knowing when you're going to throw, so it's a little bit different. But I just want to keep throwing up zeroes and finish the year strong."
