Todays 15-11 victory was more than just a Wrigley Field slugfest. The hitting barage of 20 hits and 5 HR'S was nice and was needed to top the World Champs.
But........The fundemental style of baseball is what is STILL lacking! Can ANYONE on this team BUNT? NO!
The basics of the game are still a major liability with this team!...think I'm wrong?
Wait till we slug into Houston tomorrow and face Roger C. The 20 hits today will be but a memory faded when we go back to striking out 10 times and score a run or two.
Dusty's post game comments are the same old crap how he was just happy to win a friggin game!
Fundementals are what wins the games that matter.
This Cubs team will face the 3 best pitchers in Houston, and I assure ALL Cubs fans that unless Dusty, Clines, and Rothschild start working this team to HUSTLE ON EVERY PLAY, and execute basic baseball strategy...This win will just be a Getaway Day one time event.
HUSTLE, EXECUTE, BUNT, Give this effort today...EVERYDAY, EVERY GAME!
