Spot on post. It almost feels like they are beyond repair. JM certainly gone, but the holes are growing each year and the band aid approach is not working.Need a recipe for a 4-game losing streak? Go 3 for 27 with RISP.
Go a league average 7 for 27 and you’ve won two more games, are sitting 2 games out of the division, in the 2nd wild card spot, and only a half game out of the 1st wild card spot.
The offense continues to come up small in big situations. Been this way for three years.
I think the Cubs have to go 7-1 to make the playoffs and that might not be enough.
"It ain't over 'til it's over." P.L. BerraGive up if you will, but I've been a Cubs fan since 1963, there's still a chance until there's not! I'm happy that these guys have thrilled me for 5 straight years in my lifetime. Got my World Series, I'm good...But I never give up, until I know I can't win. We still can!
Except if the Cubs go 3-9 over their last 12 (and they’re already off to an 0-4 start), they won’t make the playoffs."It ain't over 'til it's over." P.L. Berra
One year (2006) a team stumbled to the season end by going 3-9 over their last 12 games, winning only 83 games total, yet still made the playoffs and then went on to become the World Series Champions. So anything can happen. And like you, I have also been a fan since Stan Musial's final season, though not of the Cubs.
He will be fine. He didn’t have a spring training, front part of the season, struggled, started to spin it pretty well, and then got hurt.Just in case anyone was wondering... 2 years and $33MM left on Kimbrel’s contract.
My wife lived and died with the '69 team's struggles. When I read your comment to her she said, "I DON"T THINK SO."Is the close to rivaling the ‘69 collapse? Card fans will be crowing about this for years to come. And I don’t blame them.
This is just an amazing stat from @IlliniFaninHoosierLand in the Cardinal Thread.Cardinals win today and sweep the Cubs in a 4 game series at Wrigley for the first time since May 27-29, 1921. The win today also clinches a playoff berth for the Cardinals.
