The only part of tonight’s game that wasn’t recycled was the fact that it marked the Cubs’ 10th consecutive loss, rather than the 9th or 8th or 5th or 4th.
Ryan Dempster was superlative. The Cubs had a whole bunch of singles, but no extra base hits. They were an hilarious 0-12 with runners in scoring position. The bullpen didn’t implode, but, then, the Cubs didn’t have a lead to give up. So the story still fits. And it’s the same story.
And I have other concerns, which indirectly explain how the Cubs were able to have so many base runners and not score any runs.
