The Cubs are working on their 8 game losing streak as I write this. Let me rephrase that, hopefully they’re working on ending this 8 game losing streak. Sitting five games back right now and have recently decided that they’ll lose to the Pirates too. As my girlfriend just said: “They should stop sucking.” They should.
I don’t know how long it’ll take for them to start the stopping but it needs to happen fast. I knew when I wrote my last post that things didn’t look good, but c’mon. I didn’t see this coming. Who did? Any of you?
I can’t believe our rotation is going round and round losing back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back games like this. Ok, fine not all of them were the starters’ fault, but still. We’re supposed to be good to go in the bullpen too so no excuses there. Hopefully the streak column in the standings stops at L8 and after tonight we get the long time coming W1. L8 stinks, but at least with a win we can stop the bleeding. I mean it’s Pittsburgh, right? I remember writing blogs last year like “We’ll Always Have Pittsburgh”. Not enough has happened between then and now to change it so drastically…has it? Come on Cubbies, let’s get that W!
Go Cubs Go!
