I, Clever, wish I could have been the original source of this humor. Sadly, I am not.

Sean Burnett dealing with "a little irritation" in elbow, acc. to Davey. Same thing he had earlier in year. Won't pitch for a couple days.

More about Burnett from Zuckerman:

Quote
Johnson said he became aware of the recurring problem following yesterday's win.

"After the game, he got treatment," the manager said. "That's not usually what he does."

Johnson said Burnett was not scheduled to receive an MRI on the elbow.

Quote from: Andrew Simon
The Cubs are a .500 team at home, but 17-48 on the road, including 1-6 on their most recent trip.

Quote from: Andrew Simon
Detwiler hasn't faced Chicago this season, but went 1-1 with a 4.35 ERA in two 2011 starts.
