Cubs Charm the Snakes…again

I’ve been waiting to use that one.  Tyler Colvin played first base and got a two run home run.  Andrew Cashner showed he’s got the tools in the making of becoming a Cubs legend and Starlin Castro added to his future Hall of Fame numbers.  All right, I may be jumping the gun just a bit, but those are just a few reasons to get excited this year for the Chicago Cubs.

The Cubs not only came from behind to beat the Diamondbacks 6-5, but they did it with perceverance and hard work.  This team is really coming together.  It seems Opening Day was all about the jitters.

There is a long road ahead still, but  so far so good. Although Cashner left the game with soreness in his shoulder, it looks like it is just day to day.

The Cubs are over .500, and the Boston Red Sox are 0-3.  Hmmn, I better check that Mayan calendar.

    AHAHAHAHA! My Mayan calendar features a portrait of Big Z on the front… for whatever that’s worth. I’m a fan of Colvin. Still don’t see why he doesn’t start every day over Kosuke.

    I think he’ll get his chance before long.

    I know what you mean about the bright spots with this team. I feel like with the lower expectations, it will be fun to sit back and let them play good baseball and stay under the radar.

    Six games in and already this team is exciting, frustrating, nerve-racking and now even somewhat scrambling. There is definitely a lot to be thrilled about with this team as it’s one of my favorite Cub rosters to watch when compared to those we’ve been given over the past few years. Hopefully one stint on the DL will be all they need to heal Cash and Wells. The rotator cuff injury is the scariest of the three pitchers who had issues during Opening Week, without a doubt. I like the potential Cashner shows though, so hopefully all is well in a few weeks from now. Go Cubs Go.

    Mark: Maybe the whole underdog thing is good for the Cubs! Stay under the radar until they get high in the standings. And I love how the Red Sox are sucking!!!
