Do Cubs fans ask for too much?

While at work, I was thinking to myself about the Cubs unforgivable loss last night. And I found myself thinking, "What can we do? Who can we get? Let's wait 'till next year." Then it came to me. We as Cubs fans may ask too much. Every year it's the same thing. We start the downslide and begin to point fingers. Usually it's the pitching. then it's Hendry. Then Baker and so on...  We all begin to ask ourselves (usually mid-June) what the problem(s) are and how to fix them. Every year it's something different. Then we all put false hope that we'll sign the next big free agent. And if we do and he fails, he's the problem. There's always a scapeGOAT.Pun intended. Should we just face the fact of being "lovable losers"? Does the big red "C" on our caps stand for "cursed"? Just wondering what all of you think. I'm not trying to be pessimistic, just realistic. Then maybe we won't get our hopes up too high year after year.
