Listen Up Cubs Fans

This is by no means anything definitive but it is interesting. Of the three other NL teams to have ever sent 8 players to the All-Star game, two; the 1943 Cardinals and the 1960 Pirates made it to the World Series, with the Pirates winning it. The other team, the '56 Reds finished the season in third place. Does any of this make you feel more or less confident? Me either.

if they keep playing like they did tonight...i don't think so.

Unfortunately, these Cubs can't hit off-speed junk well enough to make a WS run. Look at what the D'backs did last year: all junk and lights out in Chi town.

They're gonna have to step it up a notch or they won't even make the playoffs. Losing 2 of 3 to the lowly Astros isn't a good way to start the 2nd half!
