Cubs Fans, are some of my favorite people. Now, don’t get me a wrong I am a Cubs Fan, and sometimes I may over-react to something that is not as serious as it may seem. But, I, after one game, do not call it in on the season and say that Cubs are absolutely terrible, and this team is never going to make playoffs, why do we waste our time getting excited over this team?
No, I am not one of the many Cubs fans that have cried one of the previous statements over and over again for the past 24 hours. I mean come on people, It is game 1 of 162, you cannot sit here on April 6th, second day of the season, and tell me that the Cubs hopes for 2010 are over.
I mean Cubs fans are the perfect cliche… They feel that when they are on the top, it is better than it actually is, and when they are on the bottom it is always worse than it actually is. But, nonetheless lets take a look at some of the Comments I have seen over the past day, and I will give my reaction to each of them.
So Let the roast of the 2010 Cubs begin…
- Send Jeff Samardzija down or just plain out release him– Now sending Samardzija downo to the minors is not a bad idea at all, in fact that maybe the best solution for the Cubs. But to suggest that the Cubs should release him, that is Just plain ridicolous.
- Zambrano…Ace????? I cant wait to see the rest of the staff.– Despite his poor performance yesterday, I still consider Zambrano to be an ace. An Ace is a pitcher who has 16+ wins for the past 7 season leading up to 2009, which is something Zambrano has accomplished.
- He is so bad at defence, every time a ball is hit there I never want to watch. He can not throw from short to first, he has no range and routine groundball are not for sure outs. If he does not hit, there is no need for him to play.( In Reference to Ryan Theriot)– So there is no need to play one of the better players on the Cubs team, eh? Ryan Theriot’s defense may not be stellar, but last year he ranked among the middle of pack defensively among MLB shortstops.
Also in general, stop suggesting that the Cubs should have a fire sale, and just trade every one of their top stars. Look, yesterday was not a good game, but we should not be going crazy as if this team is never going to win again. Just catch your breath and relax, the Cubs are not as bad as some of their fans are portraying them as.
