The Cubs welcomed Derrek Lee to the Chicago as an opponent with the kind of welcoming loss that only the Cubs can offer. We won’t dwell on Lee’s terrible day (though he got a really heartfelt welcome from the crowd), and instead we’ll dwell on Carlos Marmol’s terrible day. And if there was one guy to NOT give up the game-winning hit to, it’s Rick freaking Ankiel.
