The Cubs At All-Star Break

Since the All-Star Game is the traditional break in the baseball season, I thought it would be a good time to report on my favorite team, the Chicago Cubs.

They’re still in first place, 4.5 games ahead in their division. Despite a few blips along the way, they are playing better than they did last year at this time.  The pitching, especially the starting pitching has been good. Although Carlos Marmol needs to turn it up a notch from the way he has performed recently.

The hitting, still not home run driven, has been solid. Thanks to more walks, the OBP has been up this year and they have had a few clutch hits to help them win games.

With the White Sox in first place in their division in the American League, I’m thinking about an cross town World Series this year. I think it will be harder for the Sox than the Cubs to get there, but anything is possible in baseball.
