I was starting to think they were showing some improvement. Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo are both having bonce back seasons. Junior Lake has been a pleasant surprise as of late. Even the bullpen has been on a hot streak as of late. Heck, after laying an egg in San Diego last week Edwin Jackson pitched really well today, but it was still in a losing effort.
But alas, here we are... again. Nearly a third of the way into the season my Cubs are the only team without twenty wins, they have the worst record in baseball, and they are on pace for a record of 60 wins and 102 losses.
Oh, and Junior Lake. ... never mind.
I guess I can get excited for the draft next week, and while I'm at it I can look forward to next year's draft as well. It seems as though we'll picking near the top yet again in 2015.
So, when I'm depressed about my team I go looking for something to laugh about elsewhere in MLB. The Cubs were just playing the Giants, so I didn't have to look too far... helllllllo, Hunter Pence.
I like Hunter. He seems like a great clubhouse guy, he's very fan friendly, and he is solid baseball player. Yet, he's always stood out. It's tough to put it to words, so let me just post a picture of a mock scouting report I found on Mr. Pence.
