After another road series loss, there hasn’t been much positive chatter surrounding the Cubs. Despite a .500 predicted finish for this season, the Cubs are sitting at a .370 winning percentage and over 12 games back. It looks like loyal Chicago fans will be waiting yet another year for an average season, but MLB’s last place team still finds a way to keep it interesting.
The name topping charts today for Cubs and MLB fans is Jeff Samardzija. In just three innings, he went from the lowest ERA in baseball to 14th.
Jason Hammel joins Samardzija in names discussed, especially as the 2014 draft and trade season quickly approaches.
Also, Cubs have declared they will be scouting arms to bulk up their farm system.
Anthony Rizzo kept it interesting on Sunday after scoring his first game ejection. Rick Renteria, who has had his own fair share of ejections, must be so proud.
And the Rooftops vs. Renovations battle is heating up. Have Cubs’ executives found the two sentences to make their case?
