Yay! Third baseman Josh Vitters is back in the lineup Tuesday as the Cubbies open the final stretch of their schedule with nine games against non contenders.
Vitters, Dave Sappelt, Joe Mather and Chris Rusin are all scheduled to play in the opener of a three-game series in Denver against the Colorado Rockies.
Vitters is batting just .167 this month and .114 in 88 at-bats since he arrived in the big leagues.
I’m impressed mehhh.
The Cubs and Rockies began the series with identical 59-94 records. The only team with a worse record in baseball is the Houston Astros at 50-104.
If we win with the kids our chances of receiving the #2 pick in next years draft decrease and our chances of losing less then 100 games also decrease.
Whats more important? The wins, the draft, the integrity, the fans???

1. Sappelt, RF
