Does ANYONE remember 2007? Granted, 85 wins probably won't be enough this year. But that team looked abysmal until the end of June! The talent on this team is there - there's no doubt. Look at the peripherals - this is largely a run of catastrophic luck. Lou is doing poorly, and DLee/Aram are sinking rallies daily with their slumps. I am calling it now, and I want everyone to remember: this team will win 90 games this year. I haven't posted for a long time because of how catatonic almost everyone is acting. I live in Boston, and let me tell you, even Al sounds like a panicky Sox fan after each loss. I love this blog, love Al, love everyone on it and I feel the same pain you all do. But today, I am declaring that everything will be alright and that THIS cubs team will be damn good!
