One was a Pablo bloop, but the other two were smoked and his control was pretty wonky.

James Russell worth a look? Just scooped him in one of my leagues just in case...

Minor hiccup for Fujikawa, probably not actionable at this point since there's nobody great behind him. Romo also hit pretty hard. Pagan did not help though, he looked like he was blindfolded. But still... warning track fly balls and home runs are not good things. He pitched last night though which could explain why he was a bit shaky.

The wind was pretty ridiculous today. Both DeJesus's homerun earlier in the game and Navarro's off Romo were not hit all that well, they just didn't stop carrying. Disappointing that the Giants weren't able to get anything up in the air.

Speaking of blind, somebody's gonna lose an eye going hard for a fly ball at Wrigley early in the year when there's nothing but branches and sticks against the wall. Pagan has a way better chance of catching that ball were it any park with padding.

Anyone care to guess how many saves Chisek ends up with? For some reason I have him on my bench in 2 leagues.

Per Andy Behrens on Twitter:

Fujikawa may be headed to DL. Name isn't on lineup card


Marmol time?

Fujikawa to the dl is official. Rotoworld is saying Camp/Russell committee, which seems likely, but no quotes to confirm. I'd be surprised if Marmol gets a shot this soon after being demoted.

Jesse Rogers @ESPNChiCubs
Closer by committee but Marmol will not be a part of it

CUBS RECAP: Fujikawa to DL. Closer committee will feature Russell (LHP) and Camp (RHP), and NOT Marmol or Dolis, acc. to @ESPNChiCubs.
