I dunno...is this good?
The Cubs got blown out on Thursday, then proceeded to repay the D'Backs with a ton of run production in the next three games. Dan Haren was the pitcher in one of the games, and he isn't too terrible (though he didn't look great in THAT game). But is this just a case of feasting upon poor pitching?
Or are the Cubs' bats waking up a bit? Soriano has been raking it lately, and has his average up over .300, I believe. He was responsible for tying the game on Saturday, and hit two more homers on Sunday. That's what this team needs from him - offensive output worthy a guy getting 18 million a year.
But Byrd and Fukudome are both hitting well, also. Makes it hard to find at bats for Colvin or Nady.
Now if those corner infielders start hitting, we'll have something going on here. Going into Pittsburgh, it should stay pretty good...
