Cubs Hit But Can’t Score

By bullpenbrian at 05.10.2010 Leave a comment.

How is it the Cubs have four regulars batting above .300 but can’t score enough runs to win a ballgame?

Theriot, Fukudome, Byrd & Soriano all rank in the top-11 for batting average in the NL…but the offense remains terribly inconsistently.

That falls on the shoulders of D-Lee (.210) and Aramis (.160), the club’s two biggest run producers…whose collective slump essentially has the Cubs playing without a three & four hitter…and, of course, it shows with a record four games below .500.

I’m not giving up on either one, but isn’t it about time Lou moves Lee from the three-hole and Aramis down to sixth…like permanently…at least until these guys come around with some plate consistency?

What else needs to sour before significant changes come to this lineup? Is a 1-5 road trip through Pittsburgh and Cincy not enough to signal the panic alarm?
