There’s not a more important bat in the Cubs’ lineup than Aramis’.
He’s the best clutch hitter on the team, a proven RBI-man, a guy opponents pitch around.
No surprise, obviously, the Cubs suffered offensively while Aramis
slumped through the first half of the season batting below .200.
Lately, however, Aramis has found his old self at the plate.
He hit .429 during the recent seven-game road trip, including four
home runs and nine-RBI. He drove in four more runs in the Cubs 12-6 win
against Philly Thursday night.
If Aramis stays true to form, we’re looking at a different Cubs
offense than what we saw the first three months of the season.
It’s probably too little too late. But without Aramis’ bat,
our Cubbies have no chance at all!
