    Affliction Tribune

    It appears the Affliction Cubs have taken the turn for the worst that has been foreseen. With only 3 games left the Cubs are 1.5 games back from a playoff spot. Somehow Odell McDonald with his 24 wins was not able to will his team to the playoffs this year. After a monumental blowup last year the Cubs vowed to dismantle the team but off-season trades blew up and they were given a second chance. What they did with that chance is embarrass themselves more than could have been imagined. Stay turned to how this will affect the current roster.

    Again the Cubs have gone into the off season with the intention of selling and what appears to be to good of a deal has been presented again. The Red Sox greatly improved their draft status by adding 2 first round picks and a second round pick along with a couple young studs from the Cubs as they acquire John Reyna, Old Man Bennett, and pitching sensation Kenny Hawkins. Will it turn out the front office just bought a bunch of overpriced bums again or will this be the year the Cubs break out? Only time will tell for now sit back and enjoy the show. Look out Dodgers, Twins, and Giants and a second glance may goto the Rangers and Nationals.

    After just over 2 months of the 1988 season the Cubs are on fire. They have the #1 offense in the league. Leading the way at #1 in runs, #2 in doubles, #1 in rbi's, #5 in OBP, and #5 in SLG. Because of this powerful offense the pitching shortcomings of everyone not named McDonald have been overlooked. With 4 months still to play we'll see if the Cubs can keep up their scorching hot pace.
