Another day, another loss – another 8-2 loss. And once again, the Cubs matched the Reds in hits, but somehow the Reds scored six more runs than the Cubs. I can’t be the only one who is noticing this (well, I guess we’ve all been noticing it all season long). In fact, the entire box line 2-10-1 to 8-10-0 is exactly the same as yesterday. Wonder how often that happens?
Also once again, Doug Davis had nothing after the second inning. I’m not saying there’s a definitive better option in the Cubs’ system at this point, but it might be worth giving up the ghost and letting a young kid take his knocks.
If you’re looking for a bright spot, Blake DeWitt is hitting as well as anyone right about now. He may not be the Cubs’ second baseman of the future, but at just 25, he could definitely still be a future something, especially if he’s able to play all over the diamond.
