I’ve seen more scoring in the World Cup matches than I have from the Cubs’ offense.
Saturday’s 12-0 drubbing against the Angles was just another example: more errors (3) than hits (2), which is embarrassing to say the least.
That’s 12 miscues in the last five games. Pitiful! If you can’t hit, you better play solid defense…and the Cubs do neither well.
Sunday’s outlook isn’t much better. Joe Saunders is 3-0 with a 1.19 ERA in his last three road starts…and 29-11 for his career on the road—the best winning percentage among active pitchers.
Meanwhile, Big Z has been anything but stellar since returning from the bullpen. His 11 walks in 15.3 innings pitched is absurd. If this man’s an ace, he’s sure not acting like one.
The Angles are poised to become the first AL team to sweep the Cubs at Wrigley since Detroit in ’06, while the Cubs will have lost 13 of its last 19 games.
Seriously, will it ever end?
