Back On Track

All is right in the world when the Cubs beat up on the Astros.  As the trade winds blow throughout the league it seems every time players who’s necks are out there seem to step up, er, um to the plate.  shoot, I thought I could avoid that one.

There’s another funny phenomena that happens when teams lose and then they win a game or two; they try to validate their losing season by saying that,”I’m back on track”  of course I’m talking about Carlos Zambrano.  Now to be fair, yes, they won a game and maybe they are back on track but to say that this time into the season is somewhat false.  If this were the beginning or middle of May, i would say that “Being back on track” is a good statement to make.  There would still be time to salvage the season and a clear focus towards the World Series would be Back on Track.

I think in order to be “Back on Track”, the Cubs need to do well in the trade Deadline and show and prove to fans that they are taking leaps forward to next year.  They have the money to do it, I trust the brains behind the Cubs will do well.

The Cubs are in the right direction, but not Back on Track .

    It’s always amazing how one or two wins in a row can make you forget how bad a season has been, even if it’s just for a few days. But overall I think it’s time the Cubs get a head start on net year and start stocking up for 2012. The Central is always a winnable division and turn arounds can happen instantly, as Pittsburgh has proven so far.

    Ah… and then we have the LOLstros. This too shall pass. Nice (and I mean this) to see the Cubs put some things together. But their front office is not good. Quade is not good. They need to revamp and quick.


  3. Winning now is good for the Cubs, but mostly because it puts you in a better position for trades. I agree, to the trading block it is…it has to be.
