What took place yesterday? Not only did the Cubs destroy the Rockies but Carlos Pena and Aramis Ramirez hit two home runs each. That’s right, two home runs each! Count em!
However, don’t start the celebration yet, Mike Quade says there’s plenty of work still needed to be done. I a gree. The Rockies just stopped over for the game that was a make up game. After playing the Yankees, you would say that the Rockies were tired. This doesn’t change the fact that the Cubs showed what kind of firepower they have and hopefully it’s a sign of things to come.
The Cubs still play sloppy ball but Aramis Ramirez is on a roll hitting six homers in his last 26 games. This is good news since Marlon Byrd is due back soon.
I’m not talking bad about anyone elses teams but the NL Central isn’t the strongest of divisions. The Astros and the Cubs are sitting in the basement of the division. Now, does that mean that the rest of the teams are just that good? I can’t believe the Pirates. Well, I have to say that I’m happy for them, it’s about time.
It’s not going to get any easier for the Cubs when they play the World Series champs, the Giants today. Here’s my prediction: If the Cubs can get by the Giants, then they’re going to tear up the Central.
