Inventing New Ways to Lose

Latroy says "The baseball gods are testing us."

I made the mistake of taking in the ballgame on Friday afternoon. When DLee homered in the bottom of the 8th it looked like Lady Luck was finally gonna shine on the Cubs and end this losing streak. Not so fast my friend, these are the Chicago Cubs.

Losses like Friday's guarantee it will not be the Cubs year. Latroy Hawkins has now etched his name in Cubs lore alongside the likes Mel Rojas, Dave Smith, Antonio Alfonseca and all of the other failed Cub closers. the frustrating part of this is LaTroy has good stuff. What can you say. The pictures above seem to tell the story best.
