Cubs Drowning At The Dish

It seems the Cubs are not just treading water anymore, they’re submerged beneath it.

Specifically, the lineup is drowning in a hitting funk that rivals the Dead Ball Era.

Shutout by Ross Ohlendorf. Seriously?

Chicago’s three at-bats in the eighth after Theriot and Bradley reached second and third with no outs was pathetic.

Soriano goes down swinging, Fukudome looking, and Lee with a routine ground out to second.

Good teams come through in those situations. The Cubs, however, keep falling short.
