Tyler Colvin Lone Bright Spot in Cubs 8-1 Loss to Mariners; Will Pinella Make it Through Rough 2010 – 6/23/10

Posted on 24 June 2010 by Lou

WOW – make this stop.  How much more can we take?  Another day, another loss.  They get uglier and uglier as the season progresses as evident in the 8-1 loss last night in Seattle.

Tyler Colvin & Marlon Byrd continue to be the only 2 Cubs players that produce on a regular basis.  Colvin stroked his 9th homer of the season in just 121 at-bats.  He has a .298 batting average and Lou is finally giving him the playing time he deserves.  Byrd had another 2-hit night in Seattle and Alfonso Soriano even got into the mix for a 2nd straight night with 2 hits.  But the Cubs managed just 1 run off of Cliff Lee.

Randy Wells continued his sophomore slump – 6 ER on 10 hits and 2 walks in 6 innings – even the light-hitting Mariners had no trouble making solid contact against Wells.  Wells ERA ballooned to 5.21 and his WHIP is hefty as well – 1.50.  Not good.

The Cubs are no 9 games out of 1st place in the NL Central and they are a whopping 10 games behind the New York Mets in the NL Wild Card race.  The season is officially over and now it’s only a question of whether Lou Pinella will actually survive the rest of the season?!?!
