I don’t know about you guys, but it’s the first day of spring and there’s snow everywhere! “Everytime I try to get out, They keep sucking me back in!”
Since my last post where the Rangers trounced the Cubs, Yesterday the Cubs came roaring back with a 5-4 win. It was the big bats this time that settled the score. Darwin Barney hit one outta there as well as Alfonso Soriano. Oh yeah, have I not mentioned the great, “Duke” Wellington Castillo scored a crucial run.
Things are winding down as the regular season is all but two weeks away. This is pretty much as close the the opening Day Lineup as we’ll see. Nobody is predicting a World Series or even 70 wins by these guys, but I have a bet goin g with someone that the Cubs will win 75-80 games this season. Hell, look at the Ottawa Senators, nobody predicted they’d be doing as well as they are. Plus, they’ve lost three of their top players and still find ways of winning.
Now, we’re not talking about hockey here. Everybody is well aware of the long baseball season ahead and I think that the Cubs young bats could prevail with notching up some wins.
