Randy Wells, 6-13. Eeeesh.
Poor Randy Wells - it's pretty easy to go from WAVE OF THE FUTURE to Steve Trachsel 2.0. He's had his up and down starts, and it's easy to remember the good times, but the fact is that he's a #4 pitcher at best. And frankly, with some of the shit he's thrown this year, he's going to be lucky to be slotted in at #5 come 2011 Spring Training. I still like him, but the poor bastard won't soon forget this year.
Can the organist at Wrigley play the Benny Hill music?
And as a bonus to this depressing premature epitaph to Wells as a starter, we also lost another cocksucking motherfucking series to the Houston Slapdick Astros, putting a cherry on top of a year in which we were owned by the two worst teams in the NL Central. Or rather, the two "other" worst teams. I have a hard time placing us above either of them of late. For those of you wristcutters keeping track, we are now 5.5 back of fourth place, 19.5 behind the top of the division, and about 25.5 back of anyone giving a shit.
Sorry, I'm being depressing. I know just how to counteract this:
I hope that did it for you. What, you were expecting a Cubs highlight? Not from this year, champ.
