Can anyone figure out the Cubs?

What is going on with the Cubs?  They're more frutrating to me now than ever before.  Patterson sent down, ass kicking by the Braves, win 2 against Marlins.  What is going on?


Yeah, real strange. Obviously the injuries to the pitching staff haven't helped. The screwiness with the bullpen from the get-go really didn't help things either. Losing Nomar? Not good. Patterson getting sent down was hopefully just to induce a "wake up call" type of effect... at least I'm hoping. They're fading fast... unfortunately. And in their division... where St. Louis is so strong, and a very capable Houston playing decent ball... the Cubs will have to come together in a hurry and stay healthy throughout the summer to have a ghost of a chance.

What's going on? Their window of opportunity got slammed shut in the NLCS two years back, that's what.


When Prior and Wood - who should be the linchpins of a dominating rotation - can't stay healthy and your hot prospects (Patterson, for one) don't pan out as your stars (Maddux, Sosa, Grissom) qualify for AARP membership it takes more from a manager than just blaming the tv analysts.
