The Cubs are actually 35-51. You know things are bad when the Primer Chimp has to turn away.

But no worries, the Ramon Ortiz Era begins tonight!

Ramon Ortiz? He hasn't been effective in 7 years, and wasn't that effective even at that point. Why is he still playing? Is he really the best the Cubs can do? If he is, then the Cubs are pretty screwed.

The Cubs have no other option then Ramon Ortiz. That itself is pretty damn scary.

The Washington TV crew are complete idiots. I hate not being able to get Len and Bob for this series.

Indeed. I'm no longer feeling the same sense of optimism I felt when they stuck Doug Freaking Davis in the rotation.

Has any team in recent memory put such an awful trio of washed up veteran starters as Davis, Ortiz and Lopez out there in short succession?
   7. Spahn Insane Posted: July 06, 2011 at 12:35 AM (#3869520)
Any other team, I mean...

Put Pat and Keith on the mlb.com radio feed.

I'd have to pay for that-$30 a month for Extra Innings is enough for me. And no, I can't think of a worse rotation. This team's likeability is comparable to the Vince Coleman era Mets.

Would someone please wake Hendry up so he can release Grabow? What is his purpose on this team?

I don't think Soriano has homered since April.

So, so bad.
