I’m want to give Dale Sveum and his staff the benefit of the doubt after a (3-11) start to the season.
The troubling part, however, is the Cubs have played eerily similar to last year’s version than to the team we were promised during spring training.
The battle cry echoed from Mesa announced the Cubs would play harder, with more purpose and all around better baseball.
Instead, we’ve seen a team riddled with mental mistakes, fielding errors and lackluster performances. Mike Quade, are you still here?
Four times the Cubs have committed more or as many errors as runs scored in a game. The lineup is batting .211 with RISP and leads all of baseball having hit into 16 double plays.
And for all the hullabaloo over the spring bunting tourney the Cubs have but two sacrifice bunts to show for it. Dare I mention the bullpen?
My frustration doesn’t lie with the fact the Cubs have but three wins, it’s how they’re losing that’s irritating.
