Has anyone noticed our team has not scored a single run?

I wonder what the threshold of tolerance for losing is for Theo&Co?

Yes and I am sure they are working the phones right now.

Meh. I don't think they have much of a tolerance for losing at all. But they won't make any drastic moves just cause the team is scuffling. This was expected.

I realize that it "was expected." But living in the moment is what counts here. One lives under the devil in control, not the promise one is hoping for.

Sure hope not. Hope is the only thing I have for this team right now.

Even a big log gets whittled away eventually.

Even from the rot and decay from the old log will a new tree sprout.

I think Sveum just wanted to have as many Blake's as possible on the field at once.

Whoa, Starlin! That ball just kept carrying. I think he really could develop into a decent power hitter.

Never seen a team punish their players by making them play late in the game.

LOL.......the amazing has arrived on the scene. The shut out is gone, the rain has started and Starlin goes long with one on. Go figure. Why didn't these guys get that bug up their ass at the start?

Well I'll be damned......Juan Cruz. I have always like the stuff he showed when pitching. Truth be told, I think it's what has kept him around....

Cubs continue the trend of exploding offensively once the game is safely out of hand.

Cruz is not cruising. Will a six run lead be enough to tolerate any continued lapse---?
