The Cubs will get a whiff of success this weekend, and it will probably be coming from the other dugout. (Blatantly plagarized from Brett's preview blurb at Bleacher Nation, because it's too funny. Take that, Paul Sullivan. Or something.) The Cubs are on a roll, not having lost for two straight days. The Giants, meanwhile, have crushed all before them and are coming off a sweep of the Rockies. I've been more down on the Giants this year than most, but they're a team that I always seem to underrate.

The Giants have no significant injuries to speak of. Pablo Sandoval had some nerve irritation in his elbow in March that the Giants are being careful with, but that's about it.

When Nate Schierholtz signed with the Cubs, he was coming off of two pretty identical seasons:
On Wednesday, a truly bizarre package arrived at Wrigley Field addressed to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts.
Iowa Cubs 2 @ Round Rock Express 4
The Iowa Cubs are off to a fantastic 0-6 start after losing yet again last night.
Chris Rusin threw 6 innings and allowed 7 hits and 4 runs. He walked 4, hit a batter, allowed a home run and struckout only 2. To give up only 4 runs was rather lucky. In two starts Rusin has walked and struckout 6, allowed 7 runs (6 earned) on 11 hits in 11 IP. He...
Highly-touted Chicago Cubs prospect Jorge Soler was ejected from a Florida State League game on Tuesday night after he charged the opposing dugout with a bat. You read that correcty: he charged the other team's dugout while brandishing a bat.
I'll let the report from Jonathan Raymond of MiLB.com explain the exact details.
According to Daytona's broadcast team...
Iowa Cubs 0 @ Round Rock Express 2
In Brooks Raley’s first start of the season he allowed a bunch of hits, didn’t strike many out and walked nearly as many as he struckout. Last night he went 7 innings, allowed 8 hits and 2 runs. He struckout 7 and walked 0. Raley might prove to be valuable in the bullpen, but as a starter, he leaves a lot to be desired. He’s good depth, I...
A severed goat’s head was delivered to Wrigley Field on Wednesday and was addressed to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts, as confirmed by a team spokesman.
According to ESPN there was no note left in the package and it was soon turned over to Chicago police.

Yesterday was a great way to start the road trip for the San Francisco Giants! They were down 5-0 but didn’t throw in the towel. The scratched and clawed their way back into the game, and ended up winning 7-6.
Closer Sergio Romo added another save to the back of his baseball card under the 2013 season stats section. Romo has been perfect thus far, and is 6-for-6 in...

After rarely coming through when they needed to previously this season, the Chicago Cubs' offense provided some timely hits to end a four-game skid on Tuesday.
Chicago hopes that can continue on Wednesday night as it looks to take the series finale from the visiting Milwaukee Brewers.
The Cubs (3-5) didn't show much promise early in Tuesday's bid to end their losing streak...
Sometimes, a little comment can send you down a wormhole. Brandon Crawford is a glovely young man, and we talked about platoon splits — he doesn’t remember having trouble with lefties in the minors — and a few other topics, but it was one thing he said about his defense that popped.
I asked him what he did specifically that made him good at defense — last year, Crawford...
Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run double in a four-run fourth inning and the San Francisco Giants rallied from an early five-run deficit to beat the Chicago Cubs 7-6 Thursday.
Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong walked with the bases loaded to tie it in the fifth and Angel Pagan followed with a sacrifice fly, helping the World Series champion Giants win their fourth in a row.
