Trying to see the BIG PICTURE



As fans, especially Cub fans, we live not only game by game, but inning by inning.  There is no way a team that has played so lifeless most times this year couldn't use a shot in the arm.  The play of Blanco, Fox, and most recently Sam Fuld have all provided enthusiasm to the roster.  After watching Fuld in those 2 games against Pttsburgh and Milwaukee how or why on Earth would any sane person consider putting hum on the bench.  I'm not saying the guy should get his induction speech ready, but it seems you have to play him till he cools off.  Well, unfortanetly or fortunately for the fan, Lou Pinella is looking at the big picture.  If this team is going to contend for a World Series it's the soriano's, Fukodome's, and Johnson's that will take us there.  Or so we think.  After the roster moves Monday, there's a good chance this youth that has should some life on the field will probably be making plays back in Iowa.  Pinella will have all his guys back in the everyday lineup and this team will excel or continue a somewhat lifeless at times attack.  As goofy as Uncle Lou sounds at times, he has ben pushing the right buttons since he's been here.  Putting all his chips on Soriano, Fukodome, Fotentot...........either way we all know we as Cub fans aren't going anywhere.  We will be there every game, inning, and pitch.
