The Chicago Cubs’ lone All-Star representative probably won’t be telling his friends and family about this one. Wade Davis gave up the game-winning home run to Robinson Cano.

Well, this one should make some of the pessimistic Chicago Cubs fans happy. With Wade Davis allowing the eventual game-winning home run to Robinson Cano, this surely is a microcosm into what this season has become. And Cano wasn’t even supposed to be on the team. He took the place of the injured Starlin Castro. Yep. That Starlin Castro. The NL got their only run on a Yadier Molina home run that Joe Maddon actually called during the game.

The Cubs aren’t going to have their pick of the pitching that some of the fans think they’ll get. Last year, the Cubs needed one thing, and they got it. This year, they need a starter or two–and so does every other contender. So it’s not going to be whoever we want. And if other teams are looking at the same players, that’s only going to drive the price up.

The Cubs’ Kyle Hendricks had a good outing in his rehab in Tennessee, allowing just one run on two hits in 3 1/2 innings of work. Hendricks said the hand felt good, and there was no pain after throwing. The Cubs hope to have him back sometime after the All-Star Break, which doesn’t kick-off until Friday when the Cubs head to Baltimore.
