Aside from being the name of a post-rock band, tristeza means “sadness” in Portuguese.   And that’s how I feel right now, sort of a melancholy funk – each season is like a roller coaster with it’s ups and downs. Usually our ups exceed our downs. But watching the Cubs right now is sorta like watching a plane that has lost part of it’s tail section, it’s nothing but a downward spiral. We can only hope that things turn around – right now the club looks like a vanquished team, one that is conditioned to lose.

Without going into a rant on “why we stink” let’s highlight a few key moments from tonight’s game:

  • There was a terrible running play early in the game by Theriot, why was Ryan running with the ball hit in front of him?
  • Dempster made a horrible throw to second, what was he thinking?  Was his head in the game?
  • Why in the world did Piniella put Cotts in the game?  This guy shouldn’t even be on the roster…and why did he stick with him even after he was clobbered.  Perhaps Lou’s mind is addled to the point that we should consider a change at manager, he doesn’t appear to have his head in the game let alone his heart.  What happened to the days when Piniella made aggressive moves and went out and got tossed when the team needed a spark?  It’s time for the shot-callers (Kinney, Hendry and Piniella) to start getting pro-active, and
  • What about that terrible throw by Theriot?  I like ya Ryan but I also think you can play better defensively than you have been.

It’s too easy to dwell on negatives, especially when one is “in the moment.”  I love this Cubs team and I’ll be rooting for them tomorrow but it’s now time for all concerned to think about what they specifically are going to do to turn things around.  At this point we’re experiencing a total organizational meltdown at the major league level and either the players are going to have to rise to the occasion or the management team must.  It’s not even June 1st and we’re still within five games of first; all is not lost but it’s starting to get hairy.

Congratulations to Carlos Marmol, he is in New York for the birth of a new child.  And my respects to all of you who are veterans or sons and daughters of vets, we have a lot to be proud of.
