Cubs Move Into Second in NL Central

With yesterday’s 6-4 victory over the Washington Nationals, the Cubs improved their record to 13-14 and moved into second place in the NL Central. They are currently 5 games behind league leading Milwaukee.

But in the all important Wild Card race, the Cubs are just 4.5 games behind Atlanta and New York, who are tied for the lead in the NL East.

Of course, I’m just goofing around looking at the Wild Card standings this early in the year, but it just goes to show how ridiculous the naysayers are who write the Cubs off after each loss. The season is long and the Cubs have only played 27 of their 162 games so far. There’s a long way to go and a lot can happen.

With a win today, the Cubs can climb to the .500 mark. Rich Hill (3-1, 1.77 ERA) will take on Washington’s John Patterson (1-4, 6.44 ERA).

Ron Santo is back at work as the Cubs radio broadcast analyst. Santo was hospitalized 10-days ago with an irregular heartbeat. The Cubs former third baseman reports that he is feeling fine and does not plan on cutting back on his broadcast duties.

Kenny J -- Thanks for checking in. Don't be a stranger. It gets so lonely here all by myself.
