    Why is Cashner pitching 5+ innings in his first start back from the DL as part of his assignment? How about building him up first?

    No wonder the Cubs suck. No understanding on how to manage their team and personnel. Yeah lets have the guy whose coming back from rotator cuff injury to throw 6 innings and 100+ pitches on his first start back. IDIOTS!!
