Even after everything, it still feels good to watch the Cubs win, doesn’t it?
So, so many things could be enhanced today. I could note that Paul Maholm was effective, and the Reds kept pounding the ball into the ground. Or that the Cubs today got more extra base hits out of centerfield than they have the entire rest of the season. Or maybe that the Cubs are now 3-1 when Steve Clevenger starts behind the plate. Or how about the bullpen putting up zeros? Or Tony Campana’s gritty single! And gritty drop in center field!
But, I’ll go with the future of the Cubs, and the dual nature of his abilities.
