North Side Pretenders

By bullpenbrian at 06.29.2010 Leave a comment.

So this is how the Cubs respond to winning its most important game of the season on Sunday.

Another pathetic loss against Pittsburgh…a team riding a 17-game road losing streak…a team regarded by many as the worst club in all of baseball…a team the Cubs are 2-8 against this season.

But its not about the Pirates standing in the Cubs’ way of the postseason. It’s about the Cubs getting out of its own way, something they haven’t done all season.

Which means I’d be foolish to say the Cubs are still in this thing after the way they played Monday night. No drive, no passion, no urgency to win.

You simply can’t play the way the Cubs have against Pittsburgh, or anyone else for that matter, and call yourself a contender.

As quickly as I thought the Cubs may have saved its season Sunday, one day later it seems all but a formality…our Cubbies are pretenders, far closer to the bottom feeding Buccos than the division leading Reds.
