Cubs Power Outage of No Concern

The Chicago Cubs have not had an extra base hit since last Friday. That is 106 team at-bats (and counting) since Alfonso Soriano‘s game winning home run in the 7th inning of the Cubs 3-2 win over the Phillies. The Cubs have dipped to second in the NL with a team batting average of .280, one point behind the Cardinals’ .281. They still lead the NL in on-base percentage slugging percentage, total bases and runs scored. 

In spite of losing the past three games, the Cubs record is 85-53, on pace for a 100 victory season. With their 51-22 home record, they are still 10 games better than any other team in the league at home. So, never fear Cub fans; this team is just fine. They have faced zero adversity so far this season and frankly, I don’t think facing some now would hurt.  These are the times where a team discovers what they are made of, and perhaps can come out stronger on the other side.  So let’s give them a little space, some faith, and keep our collective eye on the goal.
