Box Score

I’m not sure if the Cubs deserved to win this game or not. When you go down 5-0 and rely on a 7 run inning, do you really deserve to win? I don’t think so, but the fans don’t deserve another epic bullpen meltdown like last night. I’d like to highlight the comment section from the open thread. Hopefully it says it all. Keep in mind that it is not edited for spelling or grammar.

  • Jock Jones could not throw a strike from the outfield to home plate if his life depended on it. If I were an opposing 3rd base coach, I would run on him every single freaking time I had a chance!
  • I think they do run on him every single freaking time.
  • I am watching the biggest meltdown …I can’t even talk/type. Fire them all.
  • I hate being a Cubs fan!!! This bullpen is full of a bunch of overpaid losers.
  • Time to send a message and hold someone accountable for this mess now, Lou, before it is really too late. How long are we going to put up with this level of suck?
  • Thanks again for the infamous bullpen of Howry, “Bad Omen” Ohman, and the rest, my day has been ruined…Lou; please make some drastic changes now. Otherwise it will soon be too late.
  • I can’t believe I stayed up to watch it. What a waste of time!

    Gotta win the next two to finish .500 for the west coast trip, which was my goal.
