This will be a big test of the Cubs' ability as a team to work through these 6 weeks - if they manage to stay near the top of the NL Central, it would be huge. My team now has Soriano, Ortiz, Furcal, and Wainwright on the DL. At least I know I'll be a lot better after the all star break!
It will be a good test of team cohesion. Fortunately they have won as a team thus far, so there is hope. I feel you on the injury bug, I get Peavy back tomorrow but lose Pujols for a few weeks...when it rains it pours.
