The Cubs are in the process of losing by a score of 9-3 to the worst team–excuse me, the team previously the worst–in the National League, the Florida Marlins. After today’s loss, the Cubs record over the last 22 games will be a pathetic 4-18.
As a lifelong Cubs fan, I’m not given to easy defeatism. Facts are facts, though–the 2006 Cubs are done. Toast. June swooned a month early. Kerry Wood was mediocre in his first couple of starts off the DL, Derrek Lee won’t be back for another five weeks at least, and nobody’s even talking about when Mark Prior returns.
When does football start?
