Cubs

As the Cubs make their push for the playoffs, they're going to need to rely heavily on their "egoless" bullpen that manager Joe Maddon is trying to build.
The Cubs managed just one run against Madison Bumgarner Thursday and the young hitters are getting a crash course against some of the best arms in the game this week.
Dan Haren had another rough outing Thursday, tagged for five runs in 6 1/3 innings. After the Cubs traded for him at the deadline, the veteran starter said he hasn't held up his end of the bargain.
