Baseball Notes: The Chicago Cubs Are (22-6)

May 7, 2016

It is still so early in the 2016 baseball season and I certainly rarely, if ever talk of one game or individual players, but will make an exception for the (22-6) Chicago Cubs and other matters pertaining to yesterday’s Cubs (8-6) win vs the (19-10) Washington Nationals, the team with baseball’s third best record, of course still early in the season.

The game featured the two second basemen from last year’s World Series, each with a different team, Ben Zobrist of the Cubs from the world champion K.C. Royals and Daniel Murphy of the Nationals from the National League champion, New York Mets going a combined 6 for 6.

Zobrist hit two home runs, while Murphy, who tore up the Cubs in last year’s NLCS went 4 for 4 . The Cubs’ start is the best in the National League, since the 1977 L.A. Dodgers.

Meanwhile baseball’s second best record, so far in this the last baseball season of President Barack Obama’s two terms in office, belongs to his favorite team, also from Chicago, namely the (20-10) White Sox.
