Cubs Radio

So on Sunday, I was stuck listening to the game on XM radio and got the Cubs Radio team.  I am not sure if you listen to them everyday you would like them, but I found them to be truly entertaining and gave a good perspective on the game.  They are homers, but not nearly as bad as the Padres announcers.

Around the 7th inning they tried to take solence in the fact they were going to lose this game, series and season series to the Padres.  They said we have good but not great starting pitching (really?), a great bullpen and play outstanding defense especially that Kale kid at SS and the rising star at 1st base. They also said we have no good players on offensive, but due to the good pitching and defensive is how the Padres can beat an offesive superior team like the Cubbies.

Really? While I won't even get into the starting pitching comment (the cubs have better starting pitching than the Padres??), the superior offensive team is not the cubbies.  We may not have any "hosehold" names like all the overpaid whiners on the cubs, but we can hold our own on offense.  Playing in the band box that is Wrigley Field, the cubbies have scored 307 runs, the Padre playing in yellowstone park have scored 303 runs.  Now my math skills tell me that 307>303, but I don't think a 1.3% increase in runs equals "superior".

I am excited about the BoSox series, statistically it should be a matchup of the two best teams in the major.  We just need Jake and company to take care of the falling O's.
