The Best Cubs Game of August 2009


I haven't been this disappointed from a swoon month since the 7-22 month of May in 2006, probably because 2006 was the last time the Cubs didn't go to the playoffs and May 2006 was the month that sunk the Cubs that year for good, I hope the 11-17 August isn't the same. 

August got off to a promising start with the Cubs coming off two 12 run wins against Houston and then winning a wild game in Florida 9-8 in 10 innings.  After a roadtrip that ended in a mile-high thud the Cubs were hoping to get some momentum by taking on the world champion Phillies at home... only to get swept.  Then the Cubs took their frustration out on the Pirates 17-2.  Then the Cubs salvaged two possible sweeps on the West Coast for a 2-5 roadtrip. 

Now our Cubbies look to take advantage of the sub-.500 teams most at home the rest of the way out.  On the bright side the Cubs face Pittsburgh 7 more times.


Maybe I should create a poll for the worst Cubs game from August.  But I won't because I'm trying to stay positive.  Positiveness can start by not Booing Milton Bradley for getting out in his last AB to make it a 3 for 4 night.  Constructive criticism may work better than just Booing.  Stop Booing this isn't New York.  If you are going to boo, don't show up at the ball game.
