Anticlimatic; The Beginning of the Season?
Posted 01 March 2012 - 09:30 PM
who in turn filled the front office with quality personnel...
and hired a promising manager....
So began the much anticipated off-season...
The normal excitement for the beginning of yet another new season; the feeling that we all start getting around this time of year, has been "blossoming" even more than usual with the new hope "springing" from the new regime. After having read Brett's post about the toughness of the early portion of the Cubs' schedule, some of my excitement has diminished. (thanks for the informative article, Brett... I wish that I'd paid more attention to their schedule before I envisioned the Cubs getting off to a good start!)
Sure, it sounds as though it will be a great litmus test showing where they stand, very early in the season, but it could also very well make us suffer with a slow start that could find the Cubs at the bottom of their division even earlier than usual. On the other hand, their schedule should be easier later, right? Well, logic would say that is true, maybe not.
I'm just hoping that the Cubs won't dig themselves a hole from which they can't recover. I understand this season is most likely a "rebuilding season," whether the Cubs' braintrust admit it or not, but I thought the Cubs would at least be competitive - even if they don't have the firepower to be contenders.
Say it ain't so, Joe.... errr... Brett...
