Cubs Swimming With The Fishes

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent IMay 12, 2010

The reality of the Cubs situation is this…they’re sinking, not swimming.

Tuesday night’s loss against Florida drops Chicago to a season-low six-games below .500…and worse, 6.5 games behind St. Louis.

If the Cubs somehow manage .500 ball the rest of the way, they’ll finish with 78 wins…obviously, nowhere near what it takes to win the division, let alone, the Wild Card.

The Cardinals, meanwhile, can finish the campaign playing .500 ball and still reach 85 wins. But realistically, it’s more likely the Cards push triple digits in the win column come September.

It’s a pretty clear, albeit unfortunate, picture…the only swimming our Cubbies will do is with the fishes…and that’s an ugly truth for it only being mid-May.
