Let’s Do It For The Gauthier

Ok, enough of the pep talk.  The Cubs lost 7-5 to the Reds.  The most difficult part is they had a two run lead going into the eighth inning not only that, but going 2-11 with runners in scoring position.  This is probabably the statistic that will come back to haunt them at the end of the season.

All right, it was raining.  This spring hasn’t been the most beautiful spring.  Blame it on the cold.  I’m just trying to come up with an excuse as to why the Cubs aren’t flying the W flag as much this year.  They have to focus on their divisional rivals and beat them.  They haven’t done that this year and it’s costing the Cubs in the standings.

On paper, they’ve got great pitching, great defence and great hitting, so why aren’t they winning the games?  It’s frustrating.  Soriano and Byrd had no hits last night and they’re your go to guys.  One is an all star and another is getting tons of money so a hit a game isn’t too much to ask for, is it?

Starlin Castro and Darwin Barney can’t be the only ones to carry the Cubs, but it is kind of symbolic that two young kids would considering the team’s name.

The Allstar break is going to come up and the Cubs are going to wonder why Starlin Castro is the only one there.  Remember a few years ago when 7 Cubs were there and they went on to win the Division.

C’mon guys, do it for the Gauthier,

    Wow, we let another game literally slip away from us. We aren’t doing the little things that win ballgames. I feel for these guys because I know they are trying, but at some point we need to start winning.

    I remember when they had 7 guys there. As a Cardinal fan, it was brutal! I think the Ricketts should have canned Hendry by now… I thought this team was serious about doing the right thing! Then let Colvin have a chance to play every day. Instead, they demote him. Sad.
