Cubs Keep Losing – 7 & Counting..

I feel like a keep writing the same post over and over.  So today, I’ll focus on the 1 positive – Reed Johnson hit a 2-run home run today.  Woo-hoo!

The Cubs bats were silent again – only 4 hits.  I can’t believe Manager Lou Pinella hasn’t killed someone yet…

And for a change, the pitching was bad today too.  Ted Lilly lost his 2nd straight decision, giving up 5 ER on 8 hits and 2 walks over 6 1/3 innings.

The Cubs are 21-21 – this time last year (after 42 games), the Cubs were 10 games over .500.  Remarkably, the Cubs are only 4 games behind the slumping Brewers.  Only problem, I don’t see the Cubs making any major strides until Aramis Ramirez gets back in the lineup or until GM Jim Hendry makes a trade for some offensive help.  Neither of these will happen anytime soon.

The Cubs return home for a 7-game home stand against the Pirates and Dodgers.  Maybe the Cubs will find their swings back at Wrigley Field.
