If you would have told me the last time I wrote Outside the Confines on Sunday night that the Cubs would drop three of four to the Mets and still gain a game on the Brewers, I don’t think I would have believed you.

Do you think Arizona manager Torey Lovullo has ever just lost it on a team flight and said “I’ve had it with these [censored] Snakes on this [censored] plane!” I bet if Lee Elia was managing the team, he’d have said it already.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
