It's been a rough week for the Cubs. Remember that week that they were good? That was fun.

And of course top of the order still not hitting.

Pitchers are the only hitters on this team.

Samardzija due to lead off. Why bring him out for the sixth?

Putham  Parker Marmol plenty for mop up.

Worse than the no runs is the ONE frickin hit!   Has the pitcher really handcuffed Cub batters or have the Cub batters just gone bad period?   This team just can't afford to be inconsistent. Batters either have to know how to adjust to get to any pitcher on his good day or just hang-it-up.  Losing is long...long past being an option.  This late in the season, all that's left is the necessity to win. Nothing else.

Unfortunately all that is left for Cub hitters is to pad their own stats than to add to the team.

Stats don't mean anything if they don't say a player's performance was a (if not "the") key factor in the team wins.  Sorry to say, but (with the exception of pitchers) no Cub player can boast that their perforance stats mean anything.  And I'm talking hitting here.

Soriano hits one out with one on. There's a padded stat.  Does it mean anything to the team?  Not until the game is tied and Cubs win.  THEN it (stat) has relevance.
