At 29 years old Patrick Wisdom burst on the scene last year in a big way for the Chicago Cubs.

In 106 games he had an OPS+ of 116, had 61 runs batted in, and set the Cubs single season rookie home run record with 28. He was a bright spot in what was one of the darkest years in Cubs baseball.

Fast forward to this season, and some fans are getting worried that Patrick is already done. He is only hitting .059 with no home runs in 5 games.

That’s the thing, we are only 4 games into the season. There is absolutely no reason to worry about any player that hasn’t found his groove yet. Not only is it really really early, but because they had a shorter Spring Training, because of the lockout. If you freak out over struggles this early then you aren’t allowed to be over excited about the Cubs taking 2 out of 3 from the Brewers.

It’s way to early to judge any player’s performance right now. Patrick Wisdom proved last year that he deserves to be given a chance to work out of this early season slump.

P.S. There is no reason why Dave Roberts pulled Kershaw while being only 6 outs from a perfect game.
