Friday night we were in St Louis and attended the game vs. the Cards, I was thrilled the result was a W by the Cubbies!! The section we were in had a lot of Cub fans! It was my first Cub game to attend in 10 yrs.

I'm not giving up on them at all! I think they may have a few things going in the right direction with some young guys but I am looking forward to getting Marmol & Soriano a new home address!

Yes they have and it is really frustrating! It just doesn't make sense how they can miss on guy after guy after guy. At least with Castro and Rizzo, it seems the Cubs have a couple of younger guys that they can build around.

I love the Cubs too but being 6-14 (3rd worst record in baseball) makes it really hard to watch. Sure seems like the Cubs just spin their wheels, year after year after year. I really wish they could move Soriano too. Tired of watching him come up small in big situations.

BTW, how does Houston have a better record than the Cubs? Houston pays each player on their MLB 25 man roster, on average, less than $1 million! Or, Marmol & Soriano make more than the Astros team!

Guess there is always next year...

I just saw a story on cubs.com that Marmol is out as the closer and Fujikawa is in. Maybe they can pull out a win in the last game of the series against Atlanta, Samardzija is the scheduled starter.

No didn't go to the convention this year. Heard mixed reviews about the new venue but I'm sure some people are just more resistant to change. I keep meaning to look for the podcast or video of the Not for Women only seminar that they had again this year.

Hopefully they will have less than 100 losses next year but I'm doubtful that they will be a contender again before 2014.

They definitely need to make some offseason moves, especially as far as pitching goes.

Does anyone think there is hope for the Cubs in 2013? 2012 has been really bad so there is always next year, right? Is there hope with young guys like Castro, Barney, and Rizzo? Thoughts?
