Good homecoming by Dusty Baker.

He came back, in his first visit to San Francisco as the Cubs' manager, and took 2 of 3 from the Giants this past week. Nice.

The Giants couln't have picked a worse time to fall apart.Lucky Dusty.

I saw the 1st game with Woods pitching.There was no way the Giants were going t o beat him.
Have no fear though when there is a critical game to be played Dusty will make the wrong.I still can't believe he let Levon Hernandez pitch in game 7 of the World Series.

Did you see Prior hit Bonds? I thought that one was gonna get ugly, but it didn't turn out too bad.

Yeah I saw that.I was a little surprized that Bonds started after the pitcher.Bonds is more of a cry baby and not a tough guy.
Never did understand why batters just don't bounce their bat off the pitchers head when they get hit.If you are going to rush the pitcher,hit him.Don't run up there cry like a baby then walk away.I figure it will take one batter to crack a pitcher with his bat,and you won't see anymore batters getting hit.

Even though, I'm a Dodgers' fan, I have to give Dusty and the Cubbies their props though.

First place, National League Central. Okay, it's early but c'mon it's the Cubs.

The Cubbies look pretty good so far this season. They have had consistently bad pitching for years but now they have a solid staff. We'll see if they can stay on top of the division. Sammy's out a couple of days. "Sammy Sosa was out of the lineup on Saturday and could miss up to five days after having a toenail removed from his right foot, according to WGN."

CHICAGO (AP) -- Sammy Sosa struck out five times before he broke up the longest scoreless game ever at Wrigley Field.

Sosa hit a hard RBI single off Jeff Kent's glove in the 16th inning Saturday as the Chicago Cubs beat the Houston Astros 1-0 on a blustery and cold day.

Sosa had been 0-for-6 and was getting booed before his one-out single won it.

Sosa has struck out eight times in 11 at-bats since returning from the disabled list Friday. When he grounded out in the 14th, the crowd erupted in a loud cheer. The fans made even more noise when Sosa got the winning hit.

The Chicago Cubs gave first-round draft pick Ryan Harvey a $2.4 million signing bonus Friday.

Harvey, a high school player from Dunedin, Fla., was the sixth overall pick in the June 3 draft. He hit .463 with 10 extra-base hits and 14 RBIs.

``He has a lot of tools, a lot of ability, a lot of power,'' general manager Jim Hendry said. ``He wanted to get started and play right away, which is good. We're happy to sign him this fast.''

The deal will become official if Harvey passes a physical. He missed Dunedin's first 17 games while recovering from a knee injury, but returned to set a school record for career runs scored.

He is from the same high school as Hendry.

*cough* PA's pitcher

Mark Prior struck out a career-high 16 in eight innings, but wound up with a no-decision when Milwaukee's Geoff Jenkins hit a three-run homer in the ninth to rally the Brewers to a 5-3 win Thursday.

Prior was brilliant, allowing two runs and four hits with no walks. His strikeout total was the highest in the majors this year.

But with his pitch count at 126, Cubs manager Dusty Baker pulled Prior with a 3-2 lead -- an edge built on Sammy Sosa's two-run home run.

The Chicago Cubs Wednesday agreed to terms on a minor-league deal with shortstop Rey Ordonez. As per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Ordonez, who agreed to a similar offer with the San Diego Padres this offseason, spent most of his career with the New York Mets. He owns a .248 batting average with 11 home runs and 282 RBI in 950 career games.

Turns out, Sammy Sosa's injury is nothing to sneeze at.

The Chicago Cubs' star has a sprained ligament in his lower back and is probably headed to the disabled list.

Sosa missed Sunday's game in San Diego after two violent sneezes brought on back spasms. He was examined by Dr. Michael Schaefer, the Cubs' orthopedic specialist, before Tuesday's game against the Giants, and tests revealed the sprained ligament.

Chicago Cubs ace Mark Prior threw three hitless innings Thursday in his first minor league rehabilitation start of the season.

Prior, on the disabled list all year with an inflamed Achilles' tendon and a sore elbow, said there was "room for improvement" after his outing for Class-A Lansing of the Midwest League. He struck out five and walked one, throwing 25 of 45 pitches for strikes.
"I wasn't holding anything back," Prior said. "I pitched like it was a regular game at Wrigley Field."
