funny, finally a game where officiating isn't brutally one sided in favor of the nets and the bulls win relatively easily despite missing 2 starters.

Noah is so awesome. That game meant so much to him. It's crazy to see where he is now after the guy he was as a rookie

This is a special edition of our daily minor league recap. I was going to save this for later, but the Cubs are finally getting more and more good news from Matt Garza and I think his outing is newsworthy by itself.

Pitching for the Iowa Cubs today, Garza worked 3.1 scoreless innings but it was more about how he looked than his final line.

His fastball was at around 94 mph for the first couple of innings and he sustained his velo fairly well considering where he's at. His last FB was clocked at 92 mph. Garza also threw more secondary pitches than last time out, throwing an 85 mph "wipeout" slider as described by @gems38 (by the way, give him a follow if you are on twitter. He did a great job reporting on Garza's rehab today). Garza also threw his change up and used it effectively against two MLB hitters. He struck out Trevor Crowe looking with it and fooled Brett Wallace with a couple change-ups as well.

Garza also threw strikes and got ahead of hitters early. In all he threw 54 pitches, 37 of them for strikes. He didn't walk a batter and struck out 3 in 3.1 inning.

The Cubs need help in all kinds of ways and nobody can bring an immediate impact more than Matt Garza. We can also be sure there were plenty of scouts on hand to see him, so it appears right now that the Cubs should have plenty options for their hard-throwing RHP.

Also, who does everyone think will be the first Cubs prospect to make an impact at the MLB level? Maybe Logan Watkins? If he hits well the rest of this year at AAA, I could see them dealing Barney and bringing him up this year to get some time with hopes of him being a full time starter next year.

No clue but I hope Garza is dealt and the Cubs get top propsects and #1 picks. Looks like the Cubs are in pretty bad shape at AAA. Better off at lower levels.

Rock Shoulders!!! What a name.

I'd like to hold onto to Barney while we suck. We need some stability in the infield for the pitchers and Castro.

I'm fine with holding onto Barney. He won't bring much back and he's serviceable.

This is so awesome

Bayern Munich have sensationally announced a plan to refund the price of all tickets sold this season, citing an embarrassing lack of competition on all fronts. Bayern wrapped up the Bundesliga title in early April with a 20-point lead over second-place Borussia Dortmund and just one loss all season. They have also reached the DFB Pokal final and Champions League final, where they will face Dortmund after beating Barcelona by an aggregate score of 7-0 in the semifinals. Now, they will return the money of all fans who attended matches this season.

"This season has already been very successful for us," Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness told reporters. "But it has not been very sporting. When you win most every game by many goals, you must ask if the fans are getting value for their money. And since we do not see supporters as house cats to be milked, we have decided to refund their money for what has turned out to be a season of one-sided exhibitions. After all, no one should have to pay to watch someone play FIFA 13 on amateur difficulty and clearly we do not need their money anyway. I certainly don't want it. I don't pay taxes, so I already have more money than I know what to do with."

Hilarious that Wade would accuse someone else of flopping.

Everything in this post is spot on and necessary.

That was crazy as hell. We were all going nuts here. I'm thinking Game 3 party at my house with the worse case scenario an even series.

Da Bulls! See red!
