“We’re playing like we’re waiting to get beat,” manager Lou Piniella said. “You don’t have a big enough lead in September to play ball like that.”

So, we meet here again. Lamenting the slide…the swoon…the choke. What ever you want to call it. We were going to invite some trolls in here to remind us how the Cubs have historically have been Completely Useless By September.
I gotta say…I usually am the last one to crack. You know you are going to lose a series here or there…you are gonna drop a game. I spend days and nights telling people to calm down. But who is going to tell people to calm down if I can’t do it? Because frankly…I can’t.
I am drinking the troll Kool Aid right now.
Listen…I am not being unrealistic. I am 99% sure we will make the postseason. I am a bit afraid of what will happen once we get there. I say that as I sit here today….being completly honest with everyone. I want my mind to be changed…FAST.
I dont want to be that faithless fuck who gets bullied into believing his team will choke…
Help me the fuck out fellas…just play ball and stop pressing already…the pitching is there – just relax and get some hits!
Lilly faces Looper tonight. This is the extent of the preview….the preview is a fucking plea.
I am asahmed of myself. Tell me how bad of a fan I am by chatting with me below…
