The brand new season is here and so are the hopes that the chicago cubs win the world series. We had a great season last year, 97 victories 1rst place in the central for the second straight year. But it is what we did in the playoffs for the second straight year that caused the Boo’s, a sweep. Three games, 6 runs, three losses, hope and talent is the theme. Our hope, the Cubs talent. It is Jackie Robinson Day, the cubs are currently losing 4-0 to the Rockies in the forth, but everyone knows, the game is never over for the cubs.
Our team is upgraded, even if it doesnt seem like it has affected our team so far. Milton Bradley so far has 1 hit in his season, but why panic? Didn’t Soriano have a slow 2007 start? He sure did and look at him now.
We need to be ready for big series, ready to hit, ready to pitch. It is the top of the 7th now, 4-1 rockies. this game is like our season, we score and we are still down. We win 97 games but still get swept.
Sweet Lou has done a wonderfull job so far here in chicago, one could not and should not argue with that, but that 0-6 postseason is all that one ponders at.
So far this season it already shows that the fans are tired of waiting. Kevin Gregg is already being questioned of being the closer, Carlos Marmol is a great pitcher but why question our manager? He knows what he is doing.
Two on, no outs top of the 7th. in this season we will find jams, we will find jams while we our good and while we are in 4-1 ball games down. It is what we do in those jams that decide the outcome of the game.
The double play we recieved to help us get out of the inning is what we need this season, to help us get out of those jams and know that we shall never give up. we need to focus on all taht is thrown in our way this season, a key to the lock in the postseason.
Bottom of the 7th- 4-1 rockies, the game is close but the cubs need a comeback.
in the end of the game the cubs lost 5-1, but hey you cant win them all. If the cubs go into this season with that attitude and with their skill they shoud win alot of games. If we go to the playoffs again we need to remember the best teams get to the playoffs and the hottest teams win it all- quote from many world series winners.
