Why would they have brought Lee up to play 2nd base everyday?
Because it would've been an upgrade over what we have had and would provide a huge boost to the defense. I don't think they would move Escobar, even though Lee is supposed to be better defensively.

Really, once Myers is called up, Zobrist should be the everyday 2B with Myers the everyday RF.  We all know Maddon loves to juggle the line-up, but the hopes are those guys would stay in those positions full-time - leaving LF, 1B, C, and DH the only positions with platoons.

There would still be times that Zobrist would go to LF and Roberts play 2B most likely although I would think much less often not to mention some days off for Myers.  I don't really see a scenario where Lee would have come up to play 2B everyday.

Price definitely pitched well enough to win last night, but he couldn't hold a lead when the offense gave him one.

And what the hell was that slide by Loney at 3B?  Sweet Geebus, that was embarrassing.

Price did look good last night.  Feels like we let one slip away.   Need a win tonight to take the series

Sean Rodriguez stepping it up this year at the plate. Hopefully, he can sustain this for an extended period.

I would say so. That dude has been striking out ever time he comes up to hack it, seemingly so.

I think Duncan was the one they sent down, and then called back-up when Scott was placed on the DL.

Nice job Fausto.  First homers of the year for 2 guys and 2nd for a 3rd.    and of course the offense disappears after the 3-0 lead

Great job by the team to salvage the series in Chicago.
