The story was familiar if you’ve watched the Cubs in the second half of this season. The starting pitcher threw well enough to win, and the bullpen kept the Cubs in the game.
Unfortunately, none of that mattered, given the complete and utter inability to score runs. I know that the impact talent making its way to the big leagues is generally on the offensive side, but let’s hope there’s an emphasis on grabbing a bat or two in the offseason.
Shut it down. On to 2014. At least the Cubs secured that number four draft slot.
