Cubs Need To Win Games vs Cards
If the Chicago Cubs are thinking of making any noise this summer they need to beat their rival, the St. Louis Cards, today and tomorrow. The Cubs are five games behind the Cincy Reds, the surprise of the Division, so far. But St. Louis, is right in the hunt and they are loaded once again with talent. Albert Pujols, perhaps the dangerous hitter in the league, anchors their lineup. When he is on, you simply don’t pitch to him. The starting rotaton with Chris Carpenter poised to have another fine year, is solid. The Cards find a way to get it done. Something the Cubs haven’t managed to do.
When you talk about the Cubs you always have to add "if" as in "if" it rains, there may be a rainout. If the middle of the order starts hitting, the Cubs will be in some games, "if" the pitching can hold up, that will be a factor. One thing for sure, it will be a hot summer. Maybe Aramis Ramirez will bond with the heat, and start cracking out hits and homers.
