A Little Rockie

So, it was a busy weekend and I hope everyone had a great Easter.  How does the theme song go?

“You take the good, you take the bad, you have them both and there you have…”

I think that kind of sums up last night’s game against the Colorado Rockies.  The thing is I hope this marks a turnaround for the Cubs.  They’re blaming themselves for the mistakes.  Starlin Castro commits three errors in an inning?  I know he’s young, but he’s in the big leagues so that can’t happen and I don’t think he’ll do that again this season.

Darwin Barney hit his first home run!  That’s exciting and signs of things to come.

Mike Quade said,”You can’t gift wrap it to the opposition”  That’s exactly what the Cubs did last night.

Alfonso Soriano continues to be a leader this year by giving a sacrifice fly to get the Cubs up 3-0 in the first.

Fukodome has been a welcome surprise this year.  Just when i was getting ready to pack up my Fukodome action figure, I had to dust it off again.  He got 5 hits, a career high.

Even though the Cubs lost, I’m confident that they’ll take the good and the bad and look to the future.  There’s plenty of baseball left and like I say, this team is good.  They have all the tools, just putting it together, that’s all.

    Man, if Starlin can get his glove on straight… he’d be… a bonafide SUPERSTAR.

    That’s a game I’d be glad to purge from my memory… with a win today.
