Cubs Notes From San Diego

I must admit to being somewhat frustrated but, what Cubs fan isn’t? 6 Rs in the 1st, and it doesn’t hold up on Friday night in San Diego. 8-6 Padres. Got to put it behind, and move forward.

Saturday comes along, and the Cubs tie the series with a 3-2 win. I’m a little less frustrated. Looks like Barney had a good night with 3 hits for 4.

I am amazed at Sunday’s game but, shouldn’t be.  The Cubs go the extras, again but, come out on the losing side of a 3-2, 15 inning contest.

So, I soften up a little bit, and try to retain a good attitude about the Front Office but, I can see the Cubs pitching staff as a single entity is suffering. 

The starters are not as brilliant as they were at the beginning of the year.  The bullpen had a slight upsurge, and then, proving they can’t hold on.  Sunday’s game is a good example, and you can get the details from the Cubs Home Page.

In the 13th, the Cubs went in to the bottom of the inning leading 2-0.  Padres were down to their last out, the last strike, and before the frame concludes, it’s 2-2. 

The pitching staff has been shredded with trades, and there is no consistency in the pen, at all.

Dodger Blue meets Cubbie Blue in L.A. on Monday.
