Travis Wood lost his quality start streak against these pesky Reds. It was his only non-quality start of the year.

With this team behind Wood, I'm surprised he's been so good to outlast the offense inconsistencies.  Will his "luck" hold out today?  That's the question.

Brandon Phillips is faster than a speeding bullet out there at second.......and as accurate.

As bad as Castro has struggled, he still leads the team in hits.

Cubs are putting a lot of good swings on the ball today, but they are all right at fielders.

Why, you ask?  Because it is the Cubes.

Way to jinx it...btw, Castro stinks, you really should trade him...

I tried, but the only good offer I got was rescinded when the owner realized how bad Castro has been compared to how much I want for him.

I agree.  Castro looks bad.   Here's something that is so stupid to say......but I"ll say it anyway.   Often times, Castro is so busy dealing with sunflower seeds in his mouth, that I can't help but think that must be a distraction that takes away from his mind being 1,000% on batting.   His first time up he was mouthing seeds, this second time he wasn't.  Consequence?  Same results.

Castro's problem.  Which is it?

 

a) Trying too hard.

B) Pitchers have his "number".

c) Batting mechanics out of sync.

d) Too much corrective instruction for a free swinger.

e) This is the "real" Starlin Castro.  His 15 minutes of fame are up.

f) He's still young and working to figure things out and needs time.

g) He been playing too much.

h) All of the above.  Trade him.
