Not That Steep of a Mountain
The Cubs are off to a great start, they continued their winning ways by defeating the Colorado Rockies yesterday, 4-2. Christian
Villeneva and Dave Sappelt hit two homers. Starlin Castro got a hit and the rest of the Cubs were firing on all cylinders.
It’s an encouraging sign that the Chicago Cubs are in first place in the National League, going 3-1. Not bad indeed.
Looking through the spring training stats, I don’t see the Cubs near the top of the standings, but they’re still trying to find ways to win. Ok, I’m a realist in thinking this trend will not continue into the regular season once other teams big bats get swinging, but this is a very encouraging sign.
Wellington Castillo has been real impressive. His OBP is .429 and although it doesn’t lead the team, he’s shown to be the most consistent player so far.
So yeah, the Cubs aren’t doing anything flashy but chipping away and as the cliché goes, “Doing the little things” and getting the job done.
I wouldn’t want Dale Sveum’s job deciding who to cut.
Today, the Cubs take on the Dodgers. Game time is 3:05
