Is There Room Out There? (Ledge Terrors Thread)

We all have our secret moments of despair (some more secret than others).  I've been taking a new drug to help with my snoring, and I have woken up before the alarm three days in a row.  This morning, I lay next to my slumbering wife and contemplated the true horrors of my mind.

 

What if Fukudome is the only batter who can produce this year?  Even worse, what if he's just repeating last year verbatim?

What if Lee is done?  What if Fonty is becoming too exposed?  What if Dempster regresses? 

What if Rami has lost a step?  What if Bradley only plays in 50 games?

What if Marshall can't be stretched out?  What if Gregg and Marmol get injured and we have to use Guz as our stopper, Viz as our closer and Cotts as our long man?

And most horrfying of all... what if Miles, Gathright and Hoffpauir have to become everyday players????????????

MY GOD, MAN!  THINK OF THE CHILDREN!

 

But then I got up and said "It's a great day to be a Cubs fan!"  I went for the big guns today, and wore my Fukudome jersey to work.  I'll be on the game thread.  And I'll be Mr. Positivity!

So, Cubs fans -- let this thread be your place to air your worst nightmares about the ongoing season. Pour out your venom and your sadness and your worry and your secret terrors here, and then go to the game threads, and root your heart out for our team, the Chicago National League Ball Club!
