If there is no run production ---no matter how great the pitching is--- how great the "attitude" is (Sveum) we're gonna lose.

If Travis Wood hits more homeruns than he allows, I like our chances.

And maybe it goes without saying but I'm going to point out that on a good team, Joe Mather hits 7th, overproduces for that slot, plays solid defense all over the field, and we see him as one of the unsung heroes, as an integral part of a well-oiled machine.

Instead, we've got him hitting third. And while I like Joe Mather, I can't think of another MLB team that would bat him third. Nothing against Joe, but him in the three spot affirms we have the largest collection of #6, 7 and 8 hitters in the league. He's just hitting better than the others right now.

*sigh*

(I thought we'd never be this close to repeating the 0-14 slide that started 1997. But here we are...)

Lead Off Man program screen showed just how bad the Cubs have been during this losing streak. Every category reads a simple "Shitty". We're at the bottom of the barrel and no where else to go but "up". BUT-----will our guys be able to start a climb? Here's hoping......a lot of BBQ and beer will taste a lot better if they do!

For all practical purposes, the Cubs bats have been dead silent. The only thud resulting and escaping everyone is the one landing at Jaramillo's feet......or is it at (former hitting coach) Sveum's? Puzzling.

Can they tie? If not, I say the Padres win by .1
