Does this mean that Zambrano is one Foot out the Door, or is it just a change in Philosophy?

Pinella is in the last year of his contract. He doesn't give a shit about the player's feelings anymore. Soriano gets taken out of every games he plays for a defensive replacement in the late innings. Big Z gets sent to the pen.

Cubs sweep Brew Crew. Good to have Ted Lilly back.

Cubs could be quietly getting on track. I loved seeing Z come out of the pen. Hell, he almost his a grand slam! He got into a bit of trouble, but at least he locked down two outs before that and was able to get away with only giving up one run. I think he'll settle into the set up role in time.

I can live with Silva as the number 4 starting pitcher. Tom Gorzelanny is terrible as a number five starter.

Lou is doing a good job of rotating the outfielders giving rookie Tyler Colvin a start a few times a week.

9-10 is a fucking miracle with 3rd baseman Ramirez slumping all season and Derrek Lee not doing anything after the first week.

And the Cubs win their most recent game by their opponents walking a batter with the bases loaded. If you can't be good, be lucky, I suppose.

Cubs have won three in a row and are now 13-13. Looks like they'll contend for the NL Wild Card spot. The only chance the Cubs have to win their division is if Carpenter or Wainwright gets hurt.

It's really over now. 1-5 road trip followed by a loss to Florida tonight. This is one of the worst Cubs teams in recent memory.

Without hope, where would we be as sports fans? My love for Tottenham Hotspur (English football) is entirely untempered by the fact they've largely sucked for a decade or more.

I would think "recent memory" should extend past 2006, when the Cubs lost almost 100 games, and were the worst team in the National League.

Just discovered this idiotic post of mine. I don't know if they can get it on track, not unless Lee & Ramirez get their asses in gear and stop weighing down the ship.

This team seems to streak so much that a final record of 81-81 seems just about right.
