Weekend Quick Hits: Colvin to Get More Playing Time, Lee Says He's Staying, and More

  • Lou Piniella is "fed-up" according to Paul Sullivan. He may bench Kosuke and Geovany Soto in order to get Tyler Colvin and Koyie Hill in the lineup everyday.
  • Today's report is the Lou is not "benching" Kosuke, but he is going to try to get Colvin in the lineup on an everyday basis. As Piniella points out, Tyler can play all three outfield spots.
  • Ryan Dempster pitched well in the first month but then had a tough month of May where he went 1-4 with a 4.54 ERA. Demp is on the hill tonight.
  • The Cubs and the Chicago Fire have begun talks to bring a soccer game to Wrigley.
  • Derrek Lee is staying a Cub. He has no desire to leave the organization, and says that any trade rumors are inaccurate.
  • Moving Alfonso Soriano back to the lead-off spot is not being considered.
  • Randy Wells will pitch tomorrow and Carlos Silva has been moved to Monday.
  • The Cubs are taking a longer and better look at Jeff Samardzja's stuff at AAA-Iowa before promoting him again.
  • Carrie Muskat reports that the Cubs would liked to see Ryan Theriot show some more patience at the plate.
  • Andrew Cashner and Jeff Stevens have both been pitching very well.

That's it for now, but I'll keep you posted!
