thanks again to Jimmy D. …it is not easy to give a shit! All thoughts on Cubs are welcomed here.
Hey All, Just an observation…but, why can’t we (the Cubs) develop some pitching (or some discipline at the plate)? 9th inning, Rafael Betancourt gets us 3 up, 3 down on 7 pitches (6 strikes, 1 ball). Earlier, Rex Brothers records 4 outs on 9 pitches (no double plays); I didn’t see the game live, so I can’t say whether or not one of those outs was on a caught stealing, but c’mon…let the reliever try to work himself into a bit of a jam for crying out loud. That doesn’t happen when you go up the plate “free swinging”….especially when you don’t have a real threat on offense. I don’t know why I give a shit anymore, but I still would like to see strides in the right direction. Shit, is that asking too much? - Jimmy D.
