Chicago Cubs

Respect Wrigley Field

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent IAugust 20, 2010

Perhaps the sign pictured above, located in the right field bleachers, should be removed and placed in the Cubs dugout.

The Padres’ four-game sweep at Wrigley Field, its first ever in 42 years of  existence, lengthens the Cubs’ home losing streak to seven-games.

That’s the longest such streak by the Cubs at home since dropping nine straight from May 31-June 27, 2006.

Chicago is 1-9 in its last 10 home games dating to August 2 and nine-games below .500 for the season (27-36).

With 18 home dates remaining, the Cubs are in jeopardy of setting its worst home record since 2006 when the club finished (36-45).

Cubs home records:

2009: 46-34
2008: 55-26
2007: 44-37
2006: 36-45
2005: 38-43
2004: 45-37
2003: 44-37
2002: 36-45
2001: 48-33
2000: 38-43
