To Quote Jed Bartlett: "Break's Over"

Kevin Youkilis was 1-1 at the All-Star Game. Ryan Braun was 0-2, although he did lend Prince Fielder his bat for the Home Run Derby. So, that's something. Jason Marquis didn't pitch.

Today, Braun was 1-4 with 1 BB and 1 run scored against the Reds. Also swiped his 8th bag of the season and got his 6th assist from the outfield.

Sam Fuld was 1-1 with 1 run scored against the Nationals.

Really, really like Fuld. The guy (too bad he is 29 already) should be playing every day for the Cubbies.

He'll turn 29 in November. I like him, too. Doesn't have the highest ceiling, but defensively he's an upgrade over every Cubs outfielder. And he's definitely an upgrade over Soriano as a leadoff man.
