The Chicago Cubs were shut out by the Atlanta Braves, 4-0. It’s a disappointing start to the season, but not the end of the world. It’s not what we expected to see from the Cubs. But fear not, the Cubs will be alright.

The Chicago Cubs had a meltdown in their game against the Atlanta Braves. After a balk was called on Yu Darvish, things came unglued. It went from a two-out run to a three-run home run for Preston Tucker for a 4-0 lead. But the worst part is the Cubs offense. Shut out for the third time this season; the Cubs need to make some progress on the offensive side. But outside of when the Cubs started the season on fire in 2016, this is who they are. They’re a second-half team and we need to embrace it.

Don’t hit the panic button just yet. It’s still early, and the Cubs have plenty of time to come back from this. Divisions aren’t won in the first few weeks of the season. Heck, they aren’t won in the first half. If the Cubs can keep the lead close–they can take care of business in the end. With three seasons of winning, there’s plenty to look back on. We just need to take a moment a breathe. The Cubs will be okay.

There are many different Cubs’ fans in this world. The ones who have been with this team through thick and thin. The ones who watched them lose 100+ games on more than one occasion. Then there is also the new Cubs fan–or “bandwagon” fan. Now, why they hopped on is none of my concern. Maybe they were a fan without a home and chose the Cubs. That’s great. But if you’re hopping off already because of the slow start? Keep on moving. Many of us have been through this before, and we will persevere.
