Cubs eagerly awaiting return of aces | News

Cubs eagerly awaiting return of aces News: "On Thursday, Rich Harden will make his first start since Aug. 29. The right-hander is anxious to get back on the mound.

'It feels like a long time,' said Harden, who has made nine starts since joining the Cubs in a July 8 deal with Oakland. 'I only skipped one start. It feels like it's been a month, especially losing a few games, too. I want to get out there.'"

... Harden's first start in a while, and although he is a great pitcher, the Cards are hoping he isn't quite on his best stuff out of the chute.
