OV Daily Facepalm 5.21.13

Matt Garza returns tonight Garza is back and ready to go tonight, bumping Villanueva to the bullpen.

Suddenly the Cubs pen doesn't looks quite as bad as it did. The Cubs are reportedly...

Chicago Cubs Activate Right-Handed Starter Matt Garza

Cubs fan dumps beer on friends head after home run
