The Chicago Cubs
Kerry Wood isn't doing that well this season. Ryan Dempster has the lowest ERA in baseball so far. Dempster`s first win was 5-14-12 against the St. Louis Cardinals. Carlos Marmol was taken out of a game against the Cincinnati Reds and now is not the closer for the Cubs any more. Rafeal Dolis is the new closer. Marlon Byrd was traded to the Boston Red Sox. Now Tony Campana is taking his place in center field. Alfonso Soriono was in a slump until 5-15-12 when he hit his first home run of the season. The Cubs played against the St.Louis Cardinals. Soriono hit a two run home run against the Philadelphia Phillies. Brian LaHair leads the team with home runs. Kerry Wood's last game was 5-18-12 against the Chicago White Sox. He struck out Dayan Viciedo in 3 pitches. Then he walked off the mound and hugged his son, Justin.

The Chicago White Sox
Philip Humber pitched a perfect game against the Seattle Mariners, but after that he has not done much. It was the 21st perfect game in baseball history and the third Sox pitcher on the White Sox history to throw a perfect game.
Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals
Bryce Harper is a 19 year old player. He plays in the outfield and he is good at it. Here is a true story about him. When he was12 years old, Harper's team made it to the state tournament. When he came back his mom asked him how he did and he said ''OK we won.'' Later that day, Bryce's coach called and said ''Did Bryce tell you what he did?'' Bryce's mom said that he did OK. Then, the coach told her what he did. He was 12-12 with 11 home runs and a double. Harper's first major league home run was on 5-14-12 against the San Diego Padres and has become the youngest baseball player ever to hit a home run. Bryce Harper hit it right into right field were Jason Heyward stood. He bobbled it and Harper ran to second.
