It’s time for Mt. Sweet Lou to erupt.
I’m talking classic blowup–kick some dirt, toss the cap, and throw first base for good measure.
The Cubs need a kick in the rear reminding them they’re indeed the best team in the NL Central.
Nothing else seems to be working. Getting too cute with the lineup and the defense isn’t the answer in the long term, either–there’s still four months of baseball left to play.
If Lou goes wild maybe the Cubs respond with some runs. It worked nearly two years ago when Piniella went berserk on third base umpire Mark Wegner–the Cubs won five of their next six games.
