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.
In a surprising move Wednesday, Lou Piniella announced that Carlos Zambrano was moving to the Cubs bullpen and would be available Friday when the Cubs take on the Brewers in Milwaukee.
Hmm this does not make any since to me…
The Cubs were hoping to sweep the Brewers on Thursday afternoon but bad pitching made sure that did not happen. Four pitchers gave up eight runs (six earned) on 14 hits. Five walks and two errors by the defense did not help out but the team be fielding the ball much better than they did.
Bad pitching by Carlos Zambrano, Sean Marshall, Jeff Samardzija and John Grabrow did the team in as they allowed eight runs to score in the 8-6 loss.
