The season is less than an hour long and I’m already losing hope. Unfortunately, I am a Chicago Cubs fan. In the first three innings of the new season the Cubs lead-off man has gotten on in every inning and has been stranded on the base paths. A pop fly ball landed in between three Chicago fielders for a double.
Cubs pitcher Jon Lester fielded a ball hit right back At him and threw to first allowing a runner who would easily have been out to gain third-base. A throw to second base which would’ve gotten a runner trying to steal, went into center field allowing the runner to advance to third. With new leadership and the new manager it more or less looks like things will be the same this year for my beloved Cubs. Only 161 games to go.
