Nope. Not a dream. Definitely not a joke either. We have to suck it up and get thru it.
With this loss the Cubs drop to below 500. Below is some video I took of the overenthusiastic Cubs fan near me. I tried to get video of him screaming but everytime I started to record he got a little silent.
Jake Arrietta, today’s pitcher that will hopefully stop the Chicago Cubs skid at five games, had an excellent interview with ‘The Score AM 670’ where he was just stating that he welcomes brawls in baseball.
Jake – we need you today buddy.
Back to last night’s dismal performance. I’ll sum it up like this.
- No hits with runners in scoring position. This whole series – too many runners left on base. 2nd to last in MLB with runners in scoring position. Cmon
- Pitchers are giving up too many runs. We’re a better pitching rotation that this.
Maddon had this to say about the game. Spot on. Not a productive offense.
Kyle Schwarber, who’s still trying to find his way, with his batting .179 but did have a dinger last night – needs to find some consistency.
Jon Jay in the lineup. I understand Maddon was going for a contact hitter to try and bring in some runs but the dude struck out three flippin times. Just the kind of luck the Cubs are having of late.
