Cubs Are On a Royal

Cubs 6

Royals 4

It’s taken almost mid season, but the Chicago Cubs have finally come out of hibernation.  I caught most of the game but went to bed during the eith inning when things were tied. 

The young guns are hitting the ball and getting it done.  Starlin Castro recorded his 102 hit of the year which is remarkable.  He’s still reckless, I should say careless when on base but at the plate he’s unstoppable.  Starlin Castro puts fear in pitchers everytime he steps up to the plate. 

DJ LeMahieu got two hits and is progressing well.  Once Rookie of the Year hopeful, Darwin Barney gets back off the injured list, things will really heat up.

Jeff Baker got a triple on a really good play.

Mike Quade hit the nail on the head by saying there were a lot of agressive things that happened last night.

You know, this time of year, the Cubs need to get a little agressive if they want to keep playing through October.

    Nice to see the Cubs starting to put it together. Hopefully the Jays can do you guys a huge favour and sweep the Cards AND Pirates….a guy can dream can’t he?

    I think they’d have to set a new aggressive world record to make it playing in October this year. Still, better to see full effort than not so I tip my cap.
