What is it with Ex-Cubs (and Pre-Cubs) players?!!!

It's obviously very early, but has anyone noticed what Marlon Byrd has done in the short time (three games) since going over to the Red Sox? He left batting a "sizzling" .070, and since has batted .308! Sure, that is closer to his career average, but why the heck couldn't he do that while still with the Cubs?!
Is there something intrinsically amiss in the Cubs organization that perpetuates these occurances? Is it just my paranoid thinking / imagining?

Of course, this comes from the same mind that "just knows" the Cubs next opponent will have no problem coming back from a five run deficit in the 9th inning, and that the Cubs will not be able to plate a single run with bases loaded and no outs. I guess I've had a lot of practice with this kind of thinking, which typcially is rewarded with the addage, "I KNEW that was going to happen!"
After years of torture, I think the "opt" in my optimism has opted out.
Sorry... I'm better now... Another opportunity to win a new series starts today. Let's give the Phillies their fill of Cubs runs today!
