I am a lifelong Cubs and Bears fan (among various other sports and teams). I have been playing fantasy since the 1990's (I don't actually remember the exact year). I am excited to be doing this, and hope along the way I manage to help a few of you out with my updates.

Ben Zobrist went 2-for-4 Saturday versus the Pirates. He would hit a solo HR to score the only run the Cubs got in the game. It was his ninth HR of the season.
Tyler Chatwood went two innings plus a few batters Saturday versus the Pirates. He allowed three runs and took the loss in the 3-1 loss.
Kyle Schwarber went 1-for-2 with two walks Friday versus the Pirates. He would hit a solo HR which served as the only run in the 1-0 victory. It was his 21st of the season.
Jesse Chavez came in with the Cubs holding a narrow 1-0 lead. He walked the first batter to put two men on but would induce a double-play to earn the save. The Cubs turned a record-tying seven double-plays in the game.
Cole Hamels went seven innings Friday versus the Pirates. He would allow no runs and the Cubs have won all four games he has started.
Yu Darvish has progressed to the point where he is now scheduled to make his first rehab outing on Sunday. The Cubs say they will take it start to start in their evaluation of Darvish but that three would likely be the maximum.
