I don't know if you've noticed, but in April the warmest place the Cubs play just might be...Chicago.
Lets see: Milwaukee, Colorado, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, and Washington.
These are not places you and I will go to get a tan, but rather places that Kosuke Fukudome might wish he had this nifty looking uniform.
Why do you think Lou's making a big deal about moving Soriano down in the order?
The answer would be quads.
Maybe we are getting Roberts, I don't know.
But if not and we end up with Theriot leading off, well, blame it on the schedule.
I'll also say that if we get through April without a semi-significant injury I'll be totally amazed.
(I'm managing my own expectations so that if it happens I won't have a heart attack).
Okay, I'm looking at the "live" box score, and the Cubs are losing to San Diego 2-1 in the 7th.
Now I'm looking at the Spring Training standings and I see the Cubs are in 14th place in the NL at 5 wins and 10 losses.
Yeah...nothing counts here, but I'm with Lou.
You still want to win some of these games.
