The fact that the Cubs came into the game conceding a loss does not soften the blow. Indeed, it only serves to make me more frustrated – had the Cubs made the reasonable organizational decision to have a STARTER in position to start the game, they might have won. As it was, Russell crapped the bed once again (once again against one of the worst lineups in baseball). But I have no animosity for Russell – just the Cubs.
