Blow Up the Cubs
I’m not a good Cubs fan these days. I don’t really enjoy watching them play. It’s more of a chore. Most of the games are boring, dreadful or both. That includes the ones they win. I harbor secret (well there goes that) hopes that the Cubs will lose 10 straight and trade Lee, Soriano, Bradley, Gregg, Heilman by the deadline. Nope, I’m not feeling any positive Cubs vibe. Even if they do win the division, I see Johan Santana blowing them away. Or the Dodgers doing it again. Or Philly if they get it together.
The polar opposite of this is the unbridled optimism of my friends at “The Friendly Blogfines“.
When you consider that they’ve played about as poorly as they can, their best hitter in Aramis Ramirez has missed 26 games with a dislocated shoulder, and numerous other key players have missed time with injuries, the Cubs are in pretty good shape looking forward.
It’s hard to disagree with that. Ramirez has started to do some ‘baseball activities’ and as FB points out, Soriano is due for one of his insane streaks. Harden will return soon. Bradley has to contribute something. You know Hendry will add reinforcements by the deadline.
Maybe I just don’t like this team. I don’t think Lou does either. And most of the city for that matter.
With all of the negativity surrounding this team, it can only mean one thing: This is the year! Right?
