Congrats To The Cubs
Just wanted to hand out some kudos to some of the Cubbies.
- Congrats to Alfonso Soriano on his OBP falling below .300. Also, congrats that he is now hitting just .229.
- Congrats to his manager, Lou Piniella. He has been in baseball for 73 years but says he doesn’t know what to do about the Cubs flailing offense. Here’s an idea: when your best hitter is injured, why not move your best power hitter — who is struggling anyway — into a more traditional slot of 4th or 5th?
- Congrats to Kosuke Fukudome for his excellent impression of 2008. After a torrid start Fukudome is again fading, fading, fading…
- Congrats to Aaron Miles on getting his average up to .200! As soon as his OPS hits .500 we will again send forth kudos.
- Congrats to Jim Edmonds. He doesn’t have to deal with any of this. Wait — why isn’t he here again?
- Congrats to Milton Bradley. $10 million a year and he can’t find the focus to remember how many outs there.
- Congrats to Rich Harden on his first-ballot election to the pitch count hall of fame.
- Congrats to Kevin Gregg for becoming a closer…without closer stuff.
- Congrats to Aaron Heilman for reminding us all of Steve Trachsel in appearance and performance.
- Congrats to Carlos Marmol, this year’s favorite to win the “Gone Ankiel” award.
- And congrats to the Cubs for that killer instinct. They are 3-5 in extra inning games and 7-11 in one-run games.
