Further reason to not get too giggly

The Cubs were 25 games over .500 on June 28, 1977.  In an all too familiar late season collapse, the ’77 Cubs finished at .500 (81-81), in sole possession of 4th place, 20 games back of the Phillies.  They spent 62 days in first place and simply wilted down the stretch, going 20-38 in August & September.  Ug.

Moral of the story is to not get too caught up in the “team of destiny” stuff and stay focused on the prize.  Win games one at a time and move on.  Lou does a nice job of rotating guys around so hopefully this Cubs team will have better stamina.  Certainly Alfonso Soriano should be well rested with his two trips to the DL so far this year.
