Cubs Just Good Enough To Lose

I’d be interested to know how many times the Cubs have committed more errors than runs scored this season?

My guess is in the four to five range, including Tuesday’s 1-0 loss to San Diego, in which the Cubs made two miscues and grounded into three double plays.

Think how different this season could be if the Cubs averaged one more messily run per game…or made one more clutch hit per week.

Cubs have played 44 one-run games–the most in the majors–but stand 14-30 in those contests. Better still, more than half of its 120 games played have been decided by two or fewer runs, but the Cubs are just 23-40 in those outings.

That’s truly the summary of the Cubs’ 2010 season: just enough offense to lose.
