cubs

I'm a jumble of emotions right now. But mostly angry.

I seriously think the Cubs just gave up after the Loney grand slam. The dugout was dead for all 3 games, someone should have showed some leadership and tried to rally the team.

I've been a Cubs fan since 1984 and this is the one that hurts the most probably because it was the first Cubs postseason since 1989 where I was able to see every pitch. 1984 was a heartbreaker too but my mom and I were fortunate enough to go see Game 1 where the Cubs whooped on the Padres.

Here are a couple of things that could ease the heartbreak over the long winter:

I want Soriano gone NOW. I'm tired of the hop, I'm tired of the long stints on the DL and I'm tired of paying him $14 million a year to suck in the postseason. (I also wouldn't be sad to see Aramis ubsgo...he's a talented player but I don't think he cares half the time)

Mark Cuban needs to be allowed to buy the team. I don't even care right now if he wants to tear down Wrigley Field and move the team to Schaumburg. After 100 years of suckitude something drastic needs to be done.
