They may strike out a lot, but they score a lot of runs as well. The Astros and Marlins have pretty damn good lineups and the Cubs are scoring more than them, and have been without Aramis and Sosa for extended periods. With everybody healthy...... they have an awesome lineup. One of the best in the NL.
Your argument is a joke. Look outside the square. You keep on comparing the Cubs to Houston and Florida as an example of why they are good but then chose to ignore the other example with the Expos as to why they perhaps are not so good.
Ramirez has missed just 11 games this season, or put into perspective, a little more than a week. Sosa has been back since the beginning of June. Over this same period Lee has improved out of sight. The fact remains, as I've already alluded to, since the 1st of June, the Cubs with all these things in their favour and at full strength, have outscored that mighty offensive beast the Montreal Expos by 9 runs.
You said Cabrera will finally be coming to a club that produces offensively. Well sorry to be the bearer of bad news for Cabrera owners but to think the Cubs are THAT much better at the moment than the Expos offensively is a fallacy, as I've proved.
This has nothing to do with Cub hating. As you should know I for one have no favourites. This is a simple case of stating factual evidence to support my argument that the Cubs are way over rated by many people. I just cannot undertsand why.
