Huge Blow to Cubs Early in Season
Once again it seems the curse of the Billy Goat has taken place in Chicago. A year after their cross-town foes win the World Series, the Cubs were expected to make a run this season.
However they began the season with their two aces Mark Prior and Kerry Wood being placed on the D.L. Now, the day after a collision at first base with Dodger Rafael Furcal, their new franchise player Derek Lee whom they’ve just signed to a multi-year contract, now has a fractured hand and will be out indefinitely. The team will not speculate on just how long their All-Star First baseman will be out, but he could miss two or three month’s striking a blow into the hearts of the Cubbies.
WELL CUB’S FANS, THERES ALWAYS NEXT YEAR.
