The Cubs are a season-worse 10-games below .500 and 9.5 games back of the division leading Reds.
That’s the same deficit the White Sox trailed Minnesota by three weeks ago…before rattling off 15-wins in 16-games to close the gap to 1.5 games back.
It’s been a remarkable run for the Sox, and a sobering illustration of what the Cubs must do to play catch-up.
Cubs brass claims there’s still time. Cub players say they need to start winning soon.
Does anyone realize the calendar flips to July in four days, that the season is nearly half over or that the Brewers have quietly slipped into third place?
What about three weeks from now…still enough time then, even if the Cubs are 15-games back?
Never mind the Sox’s run…the Cubs could just start by winning a series.
