Cubs’ Swoon Not Likely To Be Costly

July 7, 2016

On the night of the Disney/ABC/ESPN ratings bonanza (June 19th) on which the Cleveland Cavaliers won their first title in their 46 year existence, the Chicago Cubs won on the same “family” (more like a witch’s coven of greed) of networks in a regular season game, vs the Pittsburgh Pirates.

At that point, the Cubs, sans a world title in 108 years and a pennant in 71, stood at (47-20).

Even at that point, so what, they would at best be one of eight teams, likely with the N.L. top seed.

Now after a (5-12) slump with 4 of the wins vs the Cincinnati Reds, against whom they just lost two of three at home, the Cubs still have a big lead in the N.L. Central.

I do not know how good they are other than they sure are not great. Likely they will at least win the division and easily could be the N.L. one seed but a big part of me would like the slump to continue and expose Joe Maddon, surely over rated, and maybe too happy go lucky, media friendly to really win.

Unfortunately  that is not likely to happen.
