Happy Monday, folks!

We’re heading into a new week, which means I’ve got another set of my Monday thoughts for you to dig into this morning. It was a wild weekend as far as roster movement goes, but none of that shuffling made up for the 0-5 week the Cubs experienced.

Things just aren’t looking up for Chicago right now, whether it’s on the field (the team starts the new week with a three-game series in San Diego), in the trainer’s room (Marcus Stroman is on the injured list and Justin Steele left Sunday’s game early with an ailment) or on the transaction list (Frank Schwindel is now with the Iowa Cubs).

So OK, let’s really get into it.

Here they are, everyone, my Monday morning Cubs thoughts (the May 9 edition).
