Anarchists Brunch – Halfway There And All Along I’m A Traveler
We passed the actual halfway point this week, and find ourselves on the mythical one that is the All-Star Break (and there’s no week I hate more than the All-Star break. Just what am I supposed to do for four days? I seriously threw something when I found out the union added a fourth day to the break. Three I could almost handle, but four?)
Sadly for us, the Cubs aren’t exactly storming into the break. This 10-game homestand felt like it could be the gear change after the Cubs pretty much survived the toughest part of their schedule. And what’s upsetting, bordering on infuriating, is it’s just about inches from being the homestand we all hoped for. That one run loss to the Marlins. The loss in the middle of the week we won’t mention by name. Ending four consecutive innings on double plays. The Cubs are just a breath away from being what… 7-2 so far on this one?
