The I-Cubs were looking pretty good last week, then the weekend came and it saw Iowa drop three straight to end the week 2-4. Despite losing three in a row to close out the week, the I-Cubs are 5-5 in their last 10. The team continues to be a revolving door as the big club has had numerous injuries. This is good and bad, good being that the Cubs can rely on Iowa to develop big league ready players, bad because it ravages Iowa’s talent pool which makes the results less than desirable. Anthony Rizzo is still here, and PCL pitchers are still having nightmares.
The Cubs were a couple of pitches away from having a really good weekend, and an excellent week of baseball. Instead they settled for winning one out of three against the Brewers to close out a good week of baseball. The Cubs currently sit in last in the Central, but only trail the Cardinals, who they face next, by six games.
