    Default Hey Cubs fans...Tough 23 Game Stretch!?!

    After reviewing the Cubs' shedule, I noticed that they are five games into a 23-game stretch. TWENTY-THREE games, folks! I don't know about anyone else, but I've never known of any MLB team to go that long w/o a break. Granted, their game today against the Braves is a makeup game from June 16th that was against the ChiSocs and was postponed due to rain, but dang!!! Tack on the 3 games before the MLB All-Star break and the Cubs would have played TWENTY-SIX GAMES with only 1-day off.

    Put in perspective, that's 4-days shy of a whole month of non-stop baseball, folks! If this team comes out of this at .500 it will be a miracle!

    That sounds like a minor league schedule minus the bus trip.

    What good is there a rivalry if there isn't some innocent trolling.

    I will remove it if it really offends Cubbies. We all don't want to offend you. Your teams play is not offensive enough, that is for sure.

    Exactly. Go look at the Indianapolis Indians schedule. They play almost every day. And when they do have one off they are usually playing a makeup game, or they get a rainout and have to play a day/night double header.

    Its not like baseball players have to excert much energy to play the game. Sit around and spit. Stand around and spit. Two guys play pitch-and-catch while another guy stands there and holds a bat and scratches himself. The furthest you ever have to run is 360 feet (120 yards, just barely longer than the shortest track event), and if you hit the ball far enough you don't even have to sprint that far, you can jog...

    Basketball players do more in a single back to back than baseball players do in a back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Our double a team played drove 8 hours, and then palyed the next day. I'm sure the private jet, 5 star hotel Cubs can handle it.

    Whomever MC roots for sucks.

    Also the Rays started off the season playing 65 games in 68 days and one of those days off was a rain out. No complaining.

    The White Sox need to find some answers to get well over .500.

    They're rebuilding. Don't expect it to happen. Not saying it's impossible, just not expected.

    It's the pitching that they need to work on. Everything else is great.

    Cubs fans are hibernating awfully early. It isn't even All-Star weekend yet.

    The Cubs are in a weird funk that I think will last the whole season. It's hard to explain. There is definitely time to turn it around, but actually doing it is another thing. They should be blowing that divison away like the Dodgers are blowing the West away but they just aren't. We'll see.

    They aren't winning the NL Central anyway. They're really struggling.

    I actually think the Reds can hang on and win the division.
