Are there any sadder words in baseball right now than "Soto, Byrd and Volstad will round it out"?

I predicted a LaHair 3 run homer earlier in this thread. Make it happen La-Air.

Question: Is there a downside to the day-after-day losing on guys like Castro, LaHair and others?

Oh, and the whiff! That's really surprising a Cubs hitter would whiff like a dumbass in a big spot...

How do you hit a ball that far with a broken bat? I thought for sure that was going to bloop in. Sigh.

One good thing about Cubs losing; beer sales go up.
