Randy Wells Earns First MLB Win

This is how Cubs baseball is suppose to look.

The lineup hit like it should…a quality outing from Randy Wells…and Kevin Gregg closes the door.

Keep hitting the repeat button and the Cubs close in next on St. Louis.

I said Saturday the Cubs could use a nice 6-3 win to complement its three consecutive walk-off wins. Sunday’s 6-2 margin of victory does the trick.

Of course, walk-off wins are positive reminders that you’re never out of the game, but winning in the fashion the Cubs did Sunday should remind this team what winning feels like on a consistent basis.


Some Cubbie Swagger!

At last, some Cubbie swagger!

We’ll all remember the Cubs’ three consecutive walk-off wins if they make the postseason.

Had they gone the other way, however, the Cubs would have been in a world of hurt. Instead, they’re just 2.5 games back of first place St. Louis.

Another steal sets the table for a walk-off win–Fukudome stealing second base after leading off the 13th with a single.

I’d like to see Lou run his guys more often. There’s no reason Theriot, Soriano, and Fukudome shouldn’t be on the move after reaching base.

Ever since Soriano’s hot start fizzled out and Aramis went down, the Cubs have been without a clutch hitter. It’s been the root of their problems offensively.


More D-Lee Please!

Cubs baseball hasn’t been this exciting for a long time.

Maybe the confidence is back to string together a winning streak?

It should be after erasing a 7-0 deficit!

This is the Derek Lee the Cubs need batting cleanup: three hits, two home runs, and a 16-game hitting streak. Plus, the man has reached base safely in 26 straight games!

When you’re down a run in the bottom of the ninth, you want the cleanup batter at the plate. Lee delivered with a game-tying blast, and that’s the way it should be!
