So, yesterday the Cubs lost a close one.  Carlos Pena hit a two run homer of a beauty to tie the game but in the end it was Albert Pujols’ lethal bat that got the best of the Cubs.  Now, some people might think that pitching to Albert that late in the game cost them but in truth, I think it comes down to being a crap shoot.  It’s just that great players can do that at any given time.  A 5-4 12th inning win will do that to someone.

On the upside, I think Carlos Marmol did a redemption from his last game and went 25 scorless innings on the road, a Cubs record!

Aramis Ramirez should be back today and Matt Garza is expected on Monday.

Whatever is happening to the Cubs this year hopefully they can find their mojo and get their groove back.  Plenty of ball to be played.

    Every team goes through some tough stretches. The good teams keep them short.

    Albert was bound to be Albert eventually…

    No, what’re you going to do? Pujol’s is a hall of famer and I hate it when they walk the best. He did the right thing by pitching to Pujols. Give hitters the best. I think that’s fair. If a team loses–they go out swinging. You have to be in awe of players like Pujols.
