Goatriders of the Apocalypse

Gamecast: May 10th, 2010 - Cubs vs. Marlins

Ted Lilly (1-2, 5.29 ERA) vs.
Nate Robertson (2-3, 4.85 ERA)

Overview

Wow, the Cubs are historically bad right now with the exception of one good game on Friday. They just went 1-5 against the Pirates and Reds. That is not good.

I will not be long today, because I have to meet the wife at her doctor's appointment. We are preparing to bring the newest Cub fan into the world in a few weeks. Hopefully, the Cubs will be better by the time Ben enters the world.

Ted Lilly goes today, and hopefully he starts to build a little trade value, because that is what the Cubs should be worried about now.

Who's Hot

Marlon Byrd - Man this is guy is good. He's the perfect player for most teams, but the Cubs haven't been able to support his fast start.

Who's Not

Aramis Ramirez, Derrek Lee and Xavier Nady - None of these guys are hitting much and it is no surprise to see the Cubs record reflecting that fact.

Conclusions

It's a long season, and things can turn around. This is important, because I don't want to seem totally negative. I like to see bright side, but it is really hard right now.
