Cubs

Jon Lester admitted Saturday that the Cubs' season has been a roller coaster. And losers of the last four, the Cubs will need to minimize those ups and downs to finish the season how they want.
Chase Utley is back home in Los Angeles after being traded to the Dodgers earlier this month. But the second baseman wouldn't say how close he came - if at all- to joining the Cubs.
With September call-ups just a few days away, the Cubs are expecting Javier Baez to be in the first wave of those on the 40-man roster who will help in the North Siders' playoff push.
