After yesterday’s loss, Coach Quade held a team meeting. He was embarrased by the loss. I don’t blame him at all. They had a four run lead and fell apart. Now, I’m not going to be harsh because it happens. The Reds are a good team. However, a lead like that has to stay or the Cubs won’t be in the playoff hunt this year. 17-22 is not a good place to be.
Hopefully, the Cubs will get it figured out.
In other news, they sent Tyler Colvin down to Triple A Iowa.
Ok, I’m mixed on this move. Yeah, Colvin was in a slump but to be fair, he wasn’t getting the playing time either. Kosuke Fukodome is having a good year, but I still think Colvin is a better player and maybe they should alternate. Colvin one series, Fukodome the other. The kid has to play, no question about it.
