CUBS FOLLOW SCRIPT
I’ve seen this all too many times before. Cubs score all their runs on homers, draw no walks and the bullpen blows it up. Sigh. Ryan Dempster partied like it was 2006 when he gave up 5 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks while retiring only one hitter in the bottom of the 9th at Shea. Scott Eyre came in for Dempster and allowed 2 hits to end it.
The Cubs have now lost 3 straight series–to Pittsburgh, Philly and now the Mets. Enter the White Sox for 3 and then out to the west coast to play the Daddies and the Dodgers.
At this rate Piniella will drop dead long before season’s end. The only good thing lately is that the Brewers have lost 4 straight. But after starting May strongly, this team is still as enigmatic as any in recent years.
