Cubs In Haiku: Cubs Win! Cubs Lose!

Cubs In Haiku: Cubs Win!  Cubs Lose!


A split squad Sunday
Cubs “maybes” beat the Angels
“Stars” lose to Brewers

A line up that included Johermyn Chavez, Brian Bougesevic, Brad Nelson, Edwin Maysonet and Christian Villneuva, with the mighty Nick Struck on the mound to start the game, managed to defeat the Angels 4-2 on Sunday.  Meanwhile, a team that included Luis Valbuena, Darwin Barney, Anthony Rizzo, Alfonso Soriano, Wellington Castillo, Brett Jackson, Scott Hariston and Nate Schierholtz, with Edwin Jackson starting on the mound, fell short by a score of 4-3 against the Brewers.

Yeah, I know the guys who lost aren’t, for the most part, really “stars” – that was, literally, poetic license.  And, of course, it’s just spring training.  But it’s still a little frustrating when you consider which of these lineups is closest to what we’ll see on opening day.
