The Cubs have kicked Houston around pretty well in two early series at Minute Maid Park, winning 4 of 5. The opener pits Randy Wells against Brian Moehler. Wells pitched well enough to keep his team in the game in Milwaukee, and Moehler is still looking for his first win.
The 31 year old rookie Scales is quickly getting alot of attention with his hot start. I saw the MLB Network interview with Harold Reynolds after his first ML home run, and this guy is enjoying the moment. It seems like the whole country is getting on this guys back and going for the ride. What a great story. With Ramirez out until around the All-Star break, Scales should see alot of playing time. I would put Fonty at 2b, and Scales at 3rd until Rammy gets back. Miles could bring a LOOGY in a trade.
