May 25 – 27; @ Pirates – Series Preview

Normally I would preview this series as the Cubs taking on a lesser opponent in the Pirates, only because that’s how it’s been forever, unfortunately the shoe is on the other foot right now.  The Cubs are the worst team in baseball, and that’s just by looking at their record, sure the Pirates haven’t been good either, but the Cubs are a low scoring soccer team right now, that’s not a compliment, and I hate soccer so that’s hard for me to say.  The Cubs offense wasn’t very good in the early part of the season, but it has reached a new level of bad during this nine game losing streak.  If the Cubs are going to get out of this slide they need to explode, I’m talking 6-9 runs in one game… I know, crazy.  Maybe if they do that the pressure will be off and they can all relax, until then they will continue to squeeze the saw dust out of the bat and lose.  It won’t be easy because one, it never is with this team, and two, the Pirates boast the 3rd best team ERA in the National League.  Full preview/breakdown after the jump.
