That does not describe the 2007 Chicago Cubs, at least yet any way. This team continues to find new and innovative ways to lose, they are now 0-3 in extra innings games and 0-5 in one run games. I seriously question this team’s competitiveness and desire to win; guys like Ramirez and Lee can put up individual stats but they seem to lack leadership abilities. There appears to be no burning desire to win with this Cubs team, perhaps Piniella can light a fire under this team’s laid back mellow sympatiqouise and get them to GIVE A !@#$!

Tomorrow the Cubs will begin May already 5 1/2 games behind; I’m sorry but I don’t think this team has what it takes, Milwaukee will leave them in the dust yet again. It won’t be because of talent, it will be because of heart. Or lack thereof.
