A Rough Start

Yes, I know. I am entirely onboard with the complete overhaul of the Chicago Cubs organization. Without a doubt, it's the right thing to do. At last. For far too long, I've been a loyal fan of a baseball organization that was slow to adapt to the latest trends. Case in point, Wrigley Field did not have lights installed until 1988.

Going into 2012, I was well aware that wins and losses and games back in the National League Central wouldn't be relevant. The same thought can be applied to 2013, too. Simply stated, the goal is player development. Quite honestly, the goal is out with the old, bad, and overpaid and in with a new way of thinking.

With that being said, I would like to see the Cubs win a game on occasion this season. They've only won one game so far. That came against the Washington Nationals. I turned on last night's game against the Milwaukee Brewers during the second inning. The Cubs were already losing 5-0.

Yes, I know it's early. If this current pace continues (which I am well aware that even inferior teams can't maintain this pace), the Cubs will finish 27-135.

I'm on board with the overhaul as well, but it won't be fun to watch a team that doesn't win once in a while. If this does translate to a new way of thinking for the organization, I can deal with sub-par teams for a couple seasons. On a positive note, starting pitching has been better than I expected.

Guess you know how we feel. We won our first game tonight. Tough start.
