    cubs finally pulling things together

    even though Z just went on the DL, doesnt sound to serious, looks like the cubs are about to take their 4th straight game and the pitching and offense seem to have started clicking. suprising to see a little power from theriot with 3 hrs in 4 games... and now bradley is killing the ball, his average has sky rocketed to .130

    but seriously, things starting to look better. now its the cubs we expected to see coming into this season

    That's why I was in the unconcerned category. May is just beginning, and there is sooo much baseball yet to play.

    I figure that we have a stretch like the Cards stretch coming. They have a .500 stretch coming. It's the rest of the season that makes the difference.

    Baseball--never too high, never too low, until the Cubs dish out the pain to the fans in October.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: cubs finally pullin things together

    I actually predicted a 10 game winning streak when Theriot hit the grand slam on Friday. Just felt that was really a turning point in the season (albeit early on). 40% of the way there...

    Re: cubs finally pullin things together

    It was only a matter of time before they started winning ballgames. The good thing is that our best hitters still aren't hitting.

    Re: cubs finally pullin things together

    the thing is that we just haven't been healthy, it seems like since the start of the season we've always had at least 2 guys out with an injury... we should be getting healthy soon though...

    It's not September yet, the Cubs still have a chance to win before they loose it all in the last month.

    In their defense, every team but one loses it in the last month or before. I'd rather lose it in the playoffs (like the Cubs have done the past two years), than in July or August...

    Totally opposite for me. I at least want to make a fight for it if I make the playoffs, not just rollover and die. Mind as well loose it in July in that case. Then you can trade off players and rebuild for next year.

    Re: cubs finally pullin things together

    it is a bit early to say they are pulling it together, but it is also way too early to say theyve blown the season.

    Oh right, sorry, confused it with the last 100 years. They just all kind of blend together.
