The Future

Did the Cubs take to heart the term, “Lazy Days of Summer”?  Last night, the Cubs started well with Castro’s homer but then the Brewers showed them why they’re leading the Central Division and Darwin Barney committed a couple of errors in an inning.  All’s forgiven.  A learning curve and at this state of the season, it’s all about prepping for the next.

Ok, I think I’ll cheer for the Brewers in the post season, and who doesn’t like beer?.  When a team gets beat by the best, there’s a lot of respect that goes around.  Just remember, Milwaukee, the Cubs are coming back next year with a bang.  You’ll see.

    Errors and mistakes made now will (hopefully) serve as lessons for next year. Might as well make them up here when the team is out of the race rather than make them in minor ball. The Jays are going through the same thing right now. It may not do much for the W-L record this year, but hopefully it pays off in 2012.

    I think I’ll be backing the Brewers, too, this postseason. I hope the Cubs can turn the organization in the right direction for next season.

    It’s been one heckuva learning curve this season for Barney, but I think he’s done well even if the team hasn’t.

    ^^^What they said. The rookie learning curve is unavoidable, even for a future star in the making. Best to get it out of the way now when it isn’t hurting anything and then look out NL Central next season.
    The Brewers make me smile this season. They’re kicking butt and having a blast doing it. If I need to pick a post season tem to root for, like I did last season, it will be the Brewers or the DBacks.

    Hey, Mark. We’ll be hitting a couple of games in Syracuse next May as part of our annual trip. Let me know if you’re up for meeting us at one of the games!

    Well, although the Cubs’ future *does* look better than their past, they could be doing a lot better if they didn’t make the Garza trade. That definitely set them back a bit.
