Somewhere at Wrigley, someone realized that they'd dropped $100 to watch Luis Valbuena do his best Early Helen Keller impression.
It's June 17th and the number of Cubs losses is double that of Cubs wins. Fuck. Three out of the last four series, the Cubs have managed to start of the series with a win. Against Milwaukee, Detroit, or the Red Sox, it would have been helpful to, you know, WIN A SINGLE FUCKING GAME 2 OR 3. We are 4-12 in the last 16 games. But even more ridiculous, 3 of those wins have been credited to Ryan Dempster, who is literally the only person or thing willing the Cubs to victory.
I sincerely hope we trade Dempster to a contender, get someone decent back, he gets a ring, then re-signs with us. But holy fuck are we going to take a hit when that happens. He only pitches every fifth day, and he's won 75 percent of our June games. Can you wrap your head around the level of bananas that is? We. Suck.
But, as they say, tomorrow's another day. When I saw early in the year that June was going to feature a DeJesus bobblehead, I had at least an inkling that the L flag may fly at a historic clip.
