Respect Wrigley Field

Perhaps the sign pictured above, located in the right field bleachers, should be removed and placed in the Cubs dugout.

The Padres’ four-game sweep at Wrigley Field, its first ever in 42 years of  existence, lengthens the Cubs’ home losing streak to seven-games.

That’s the longest such streak by the Cubs at home since dropping nine straight from May 31-June 27, 2006.

Chicago is 1-9 in its last 10 home games dating to August 2 and nine-games below .500 for the season (27-36).

With 18 home dates remaining, the Cubs are in jeopardy of setting its worst home record since 2006 when the club finished (36-45).

Cubs home records:

2009: 46-34
2008: 55-26
2007: 44-37
2006: 36-45
2005: 38-43
2004: 45-37
2003: 44-37
2002: 36-45
2001: 48-33
2000: 38-43

  1. The sweep by the Padres is just more pain inflicted on what has already been a dismal season. And though I understand the MLB ideology involved – I can say that the recent trades of Lilly, Fontenot and Lee have left me underwhelmed as well as the most dejected with Cubs management since they let players like Young Greg Maddox & Andre Dawson walk.

  2. Oops, this depressing season has started to take a toll on my brain!!! How could I have forgotten to include the Ryan Theriot trade in my list. I need a case of Mountain Dew.

    Lot’s of blame to go around.
    Lot’s of questions to be answered.
    The trades are demoralizing, and without doubt, have played a role in the Cubs’ eight-game home losing streak.
    This season has turned into a dumpster fire…
    More Old Style, please!

  4. I have survived every up and down Cubs season and the continuous heartbreak that goes with attaching your loyalty to a sports team since the late 60’s. But this year has been the toughest to endure that I can remember. I have bought Direct TV satellite programing almost since its inception, specifically because I can get almost every Cubs game. Yet this year I have intentionally missed numerous broadcast games this year – something I have never done. The weirdest part is no matter how many games I miss the rest of the year, no matter just how much the team stinks up the season, no matter what changes the team makes or doesn’t make during the offseason – come next spring I will be chomping at the bits for the season to start, all the time chanting the mantra – maybe this is the year.
