So I am at work yesterday all happy the Cubs are going into the top of the 9th inning winning and then what happens, the Dumpster shows up and gives up 5 hits and 4 runs to lead the Cubs to a lose. During this time of year (I know this has been said a billion times), this is not the time for major malfunctions. The Cubs are lucky enough to be in the weakest division in baseball and even have a pretty easy schedule the rest of the way, but for some reason they just aren't winning the games they need to be winning.
Another thing that is REALLY bothering me is when did Old Lou catch ALS? I understand that screwing up a double switch might happen during one game because the pitcher got to the mound before he told the umpire of double switch, due to Lou arguing with ump at end of inning, but to happen again a few days later? This is atrocious. How can a major league manager do this again in the same week? Hasn't he been managing for years? Wasn't he also a player before that? Doesn't he have bench coaches that are suppose to remind him of not screwing up again? If these minor things keep happening (and I am sure he has made other gafs this year, but can't think of them currently off top of head) then management needs to think in going in another direction. This team is barely holding the division lead, it can't afford mistakes like these from LOU.
