I'll admit I'm only a fairly new Cubs fan. I've only been supporting them for about three or four years now. I love the team to bits, and my days would be empty without baseball... but it's taken me this long to realize how cursed, weak and frustrating this team is on a daily basis.
But it's the little things that get to me. And I'm sure you've all ranted about this before. Like the fact that when Soriano sucks a** at the plate, the teams hitting is competitive. But when he hits four homers in eight games, LaHair falls to nothing and everything around him is worthless.
Then there's the other things as well, like when the Cubs fall down by more than 3 in the early innings, it's almost hard to continue watching. Because a comeback rarely happens.
I guess the point in this fanpost is, how did the rest of you deal with it in your early years of Cubs fandom? I've finally come to the realization that this team is never going to bring joy anytime soon. And the "hope" we all talk about is just a funny dream that is nice to think about on on opening day...but a depressing sore point come May.
Any advice is helpful.
