    Even with spending money in the off-season, the cubbies find themselves in dead last blowing a 4-0 lead in the 9th against the brewers. I didnt believe there could be a cursed franchise, but the cubs have left no other explanation for it. Whatever can go wrong does...oh well just wait till next year.......

    Yeah but you wont see me talking about the cubs or anything pertaining to them around mid may. This seems to be the time when they have fallen out of contention.

    Tonight the Cubs have made Jeff Suppan look like a cy young candidate. Prince Fielder has owned the Cub pitching the last two nights. Sad.

    My bad....in the ninth last night...grandslam, lost in extras, seems to be the trend.

    The Cubs did not blow any lead in the 9th last night, nor have they given up a grand slam this year. I have no clue what you are talking about?

    God I hope so, I made a bet at the beginning of the season that they would go to the playoffs...

    I agree..never bet on your favorite teams. Especially the cubs!

    And the Cobs go down again, losers of 2 in a row at home to the mighty Brew Crew. Sigh.

    That mighty Brew Crew is in first place and projected by many to finish ahead of the Cubs, and by some to win that division.

    The Reds started out hot last year, look where they ended up.

    They're still the Brewers, they're not going anywhere this year.

    All the time in the world and the eternity thereafter wouldn't help the Cubs turn their bad luck around...
