This afternoon's ridiculous 10-9 loss to the Pirates probably has you feeling like that, doesn't it?
So YOU choose how you want this post to read.There's not much more to be said. The Cubs had this game won, as they had last night's won, and blew it. Twenty hits and nine runs and still a loss to what is supposedly the worst team in the league, though the Cubs are giving the Pirates a run for that mantle -- and the Bucs get four more shots at the Cubs next week.
Here's something really weird. I first wrote a do-it-yourself post after the Tigers' 12-3 dismantling of the Cubs on June 18. And here is a paragraph lifted verbatim from that post:
One month left. On October 1, the explosion can begin.

But man, it's not easy these days. Not easy.
