Will those two fun, wild wins over the Brewers propel the Cubs to greater heights, or just hold off the next sad losing streak for a few more days?
You can follow me at the hellsite at twitter.com/desipiodotcom, but now also at desipio.bsky.social at Blue Sky and at PointlessExercise1 at Threads, however the hell you get there. I guess only with the app? Regardless, it’s pretty amazing how badly the “billionaire” “genius” fucked up Twitter, isn’t it?
In The Athletic on Wednesday, Sahadev Sharma painted the picture of the Cubs’ response to a terrible, head and balls scratching loss to the Brewers when David Ross stood in the dugout repeatedly shitting his pants as Milwaukee, a team without a functional offense, came back from a 6-0 deficit to beat the Cubs.
Sharma described four veteran leaders of the Cubs, Dansby Swanson, Yan Gomes, Trey Mancini and Jameson Taillon coming out of Ross’ office before Tuesday’s game. It was presumably a meeting of the Cubs’ veteran leaders, and I can only imagine it was 15 minutes of Dansby and Yan yelling at Trey and Jameson to stop sucking and for Ross to get his head out of his ass.
I can imagine it, but I’m sure that’s not what they did.
The meeting sure worked, didn’t it? After all, the Cubs won in thrilling fashion on Tuesday and on Wednesday. They can win the series today with Marcus Stroman on the mound.
