Cubs clearly aren’t in a good spot after three straight lossesVincent Pariseon May 31, 2022 at 12:00 pm

The Chicago Cubs split a four-game series with the Cincinnati Reds last week and that was a horrid look. The Reds are one of the worst teams in the league and the Cubs couldn’t handle them well at all. In fact, the final game ended with a 20-5 score in favor of the Reds.

On Saturday, it seemed like they might get something going after they defeated the Chicago White Sox by a final score of 5-1 but it was clear that they just got the White Sox on a bad day. The Sox got the better of the Cubs a day later

Following the battle with the White Sox, they came into the week with a taxed bullpen and a lot of games on the schedule. A doubleheader led off the week on Monday against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Cubs lost both of those games to make it three straight. They were defeated in the first game by a final score of 7-6 and it was a game that which they had a 4-2 lead. They let Milwaukee tie it and eventually win it thanks to some tough play later in the contest.

The second game wasn’t as messy but they did lose 3-1 for a Milwaukee doubleheader sweep. The Cubs are in a very bad spot following this one as they are now ten games under .500 (19-29). It isn’t going to get much better from here.

The Chicago Cubs need to make some changes to their organization soon.

It is apparent that the Cubs are a very bad team but they refuse to commit to a direction. They added in the offseason by bringing in guys like Marcus Stroman and Seiya Suzuki which suggests that they are trying to win but they clearly aren’t good enough.

Those are the types of moves that contenders are supposed to be making. It is hard to rebuild but the Cubs have done it successfully before but they refuse to do that now. They will never be a contender again if they just keep adding these types of players to a bad roster.

Willson Contreras is a free agent after this year. He, along with some other players on this team, probably needs to get traded so that they can start building from the ground up again. We are quickly learning that this 2022 team isn’t it and changes need to be made fast.
