May looks like a total disaster for the Cubs

Starting Monday night at Dodger Stadium with the Cubs going up against Clayton Kershaw, as we'll send out Mr. four inning, James Russell.

 

We come out of April at 12-14 against a pretty weak schedule...Pitt, Houston, Arizona--seven times, Padres. That's sixteen games alone.  Look at the May schedule....Dodgers, Reds, Cards, Giants at Reds, at Marlins, at Boston, home to Mets and the pirates who own the Cubs. You could realistically say we finish this month at 8-16 or 9-15.

This team is just not good, they have no speed,other than Soriano, they hit for no power at all, the starting pitching will continue to be a disaster this month if Wells/Cashner continue to be out. The only positive I can think of is Barney and Castro along with the back of the bullpen

 

. If the Cubs didn't trade for Garza--another positive-- this could have turned out to be a historically bad season at the end of the year. I'm thinking almost 95 losses bad instead of about 87 or 88 which is we we are headed.

This is shaping up like May of '06 to me.

 

One positive, Bruce Levin on his radio show seemed resigned to Hendry being gone at the end of the year if this continues. The media seems to love Hendry so that was good to hear.
