For the last little while I think we have gotten used to a pretty decent Chicago Cubs team. At the same time, the Pittsburg Pirates have been pretty bad. The Cubs have been buyers, living near the top of the division. The Pirates have been sellers, typically finishing in the cellar.
Well friends, the history of baseball is long and I believe it is time to forget about the recent trends. The Pirates are poised to sweep the Cubs for the second time this season. Perhaps it is time to realize that the Chicago Cubs are not the team we have foolishly become accustomed to.
UPDATE: Cubs avoid the sweep and avoid going into last place for at least today, but they stand at 16-22. Not good.
