June 5 – 7; @ Brewers – Series Preview

 Milwaukee Brewers Logo - (Home) Brewers in blue with yellow outline

After a promising series against the Padres at home the Cubs came crashing back down to Earth in San Francisco as they lost four straight against the Giants.  The only positive thing I can say about it is that the Cubs are in every game, I don’t know about you but I’m getting tired of hearing that too.  Eventually a team has to learn how to win, and it might not even be that, it might be that the Cubs just don’t have the types of players needed to win close games, it’s probably a little bit of both. 

With Dale Sveum’s threat to bench Castro hanging over the team they begin a three game set in Milwaukee tonight.  The Cubs have lost 11 straight on the road and show no sign of ending that streak anytime soon.  The Brewers are coming off a series loss to the Pirates but have been playing better ball of late as illustrated by their four game sweep of the Dodgers in Los Angeles.  For the Cubs to be successful someone is going to have to come through late in a close game, or shut the door in a close game, because it will be a close game, almost all of them are.  Full preview/breakdown after the jump.
