Cubs sweep its first three-game series at St. Louis since 1988!
Perhaps more impressively, they do it against the Cardinals Big Three:
Garcia, Wainwright & Carpenter.
Back in ’88 it was Jeff Pico, Rick Sutcliffe & Greg Maddux defeating Cris Carpenter, Joe Magrane & John Tudor. This time around it’s Samardzija, Wells & Zambrano pulling off the Turkey!
Meanwhile, this might be the best series Chicago has played all year.
First credit the pitching, then some timely hitting and lastly Mike Quade.
The skipper is pressing all the right buttons since taking over the helm.
The Cubs are now (14-7) under Quade’s watch.
St. Louis, eight games back of Cincy, has all but handed over the division by losing a series they couldn’t afford to lose–let alone, get swept.
It must be leaving Cardinal fans feeling what Cubs fans have all year–sick.
Big Z has been ridiculous since rejoining the roation.
He’s (6-0) with a 1.37 ERA in seven starts.
I’ve held steadfast to my belief the Cubs should trade Zambrano this offseason.
His numbers, however, can’t be ignored–maybe my advise should?
