So I really did try to think of something positive to say in this blog update but I could not find one positive thing that is going right for the Chicago Cubs. Defense, offense, pitching, everything absolutely sucks and you might as well be call this team the laughable losers. The clubhouse is reportedly split and that means Lou has already lost this team.
The 2010 season has been down right awful for the Chicago Cubs. Fans are getting upset, players are not having fun and you can bet that manger Lou Piniella is getting pretty pissed off and is about really to explode on a player or umpire if they don’t pull things together down in Houston this weekend.
Ryan Dempster earned his first victory since April 23rd as the Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-0 and moved within four games of the Reds and Cardinals who currently lead the division. The bats weren’t hot but Derrek Lee had a huge two-run homer that added insurance before Carlos Marmol shut the door in the ninth inning.
Well the Cubs are doing the same old thing, winning a few games in a row and then going on a three or four game losing streak. Right now they have won a couple games over the Rockies but have a couple of tough games against the Phillies in Philadelphia so anything could happen there.
