With three straight losses to the Diamondbacks – all at Wrigley Field – the Cubs have lost all semblance of the momentum gained by three straight series wins before this. Worse, the injuries are piling up and the lineup is as depressing as it has looked since 2013. I am not having much fun (even the weather is cold and rainy this weekend).
But, hey, at least we get to see if Wade Miley can build off that really impressive start against the Pirates last week. He was nearly perfect through 7.0 innings. And he worked extremely fast. I’ll take some more of that, please.
