After taking two out of three from the Texas Rangers, the Chicago Cubs have now won 6 of their last 8 games and are now 3 games away from the .500 mark. Have they finally put it together?
In all honesty, they still have room for improvement, which is what makes this run a bit scary. Derrek Lee and Aramis Ramirez have been missing in action for the majority of this season, including this current run and they have been winning. And on top of that, their top paid pitcher, and supposed Ace is still in the bullpen. What's been the spark?
Since making his MLB debut on May 7th, Starlin Castro and the Cubs have gone 8-8. However, the Cubs have been 6-0 in the games where he's hitting 2nd in the order. He's also 10-25 hitting in the two spot. Maybe the Cubs have found the guy who should be hitting behind Ryan Theriot. Now, to find someone else to hit 3rd that's not named Lee.
