CHICAGO — Mike Bolsinger‘s best is not as good as Jon Lester‘s best. Bolsinger even hinted that his own family knew that before Wednesday, when the Dodgers lost to the Cubs 2-1. (The box score is here.)

But Bolsinger’s best was still pretty good, and his future in the starting rotation seems stable. That’s due in part to the fact that Alex Wood is down for at least a month with posterior elbow impingement.
