Is there any length a Flubs fan won't go to? Why not just give yourself a break, admit that it's a nightmare season, watch if you can enjoy it (including making fun of the awful players you're stuck with for now, a fan's prerogative), don't watch if you can't. Wow.

No, Cubs fans know no length when it comes to justifying their team's awful tradition. They will twist logic, show their complete lack of knowledge and pray that the White Sox don't make the playoffs. THen if their team finally ever gets to the World Series, they will say how great it is because it took so long. Of course, by that time most will be in nursing homes wetting all over themselves, but that's another story.

That's a great article. Had the Nationals been doing that in the 8th inning then maybe the Cubs would have had a point in being angry but if you're up by five in the 5th you can still lose the game.

I prefer to agree with Sean Casey on the MLB network who asked this question (and I paraphrase here,forgive me). :

"If you're so mad, how about striking out some hitters"?

They would have had no point in being angry at any point in the game. These are adult professionals, the other team's job is to keep scoring runs on you no matter what. It's your job to stop them, legally.

In baseball, it ain't over 'till it's over, so no lead is big enough, really. You just gotta man up and retire your opposition, within the rules. I would never want an opponent to take it easy on me, it would be insulting.
