Cubs attack the Brewers

Chicago Cubs 12

Millwaukee Brewers 7

I was almost going to start off the post by calling it a mauling, but thought otherwise.  Cubs fans have been waiting all season for the kind of victory the team pulled off yesterday.  it showed the kind of power, speed and sheer talent the 2011 Cubs have.

I was picking on Kosuke Fukodome a lot during the off season, I even ate crow over one of the posts.  Kosuke Fukodome is not the problem this year.  He’s playing really good baseball.  Yesterday, he was one double away from hitting for cycle.  Sorry Kosuke!!!

Carlos Pena(10) and Alfonso Soriano(13) homered each to add to the attack.

“We haven’t played good in the last 2 1/2 months,I hope our time is coming and everyone starts playing better.” said Alfonso Soriano.

Well, that’s up to you and the team.  It’s not a” hoping” kind of situation. 

They have the team and the talent to win the ball games.  The Cubs just beat up on the first place Brewers.  Well done!

    Good job for the Cubs beating up on the Brew Crew… unfortunately, the Cards can’t beat the Nats so they didn’t move up at all. I do look forward to the Yankees coming to town. Should be fun!

    I can never decide if Carlos Pena is a good player or not. He’s posting some decent numbers this year (of course the batting average is sub .230 as you’d expect.) I thought playing a whole season in Wrigley would inflate his numbers but he’s still around where he was last year. Who knows maybe he is just about to get hot.

  3. Cool beans on the win, especially when the Brewers have been so hot lately. And I don’t think it’s eating crow when you would prefer to be wrong about something anyway.

    If your Cubs wanted to hang on and beat the Yanks tonight that’d be nice for the Jays.
