Damn Cubbies.

For those of you who know anything about musical theater...wait...this post started off wrong. Let me try again.

Those of you who know anything about baseball-related things, know that Damn Yankees was a story about a Washington Senators fan named Joe who sells his soul to the devil to become the Senators' power-hitting savior against the hated Yankees. This is what has happened with the Cardinals. WTF, mate? As I write this, the Cards are about to take down the Rockies for their 22nd win in 34 games. Who sold their soul to the devil for this to happen? The Cubs have Soriano, Lee, Ramirez, and Fukudome (one could argue that Fukudome is already a proven star). The Cardinals have Pujols...and...um...yeah. The Cardinals have Pujols. Ok, ok, I'll give you Troy Glaus, but that's a stretch. The Cardinals should be lucky to be over .500 right now. The 2008 Cardinals are reminiscent of the 2005 Astros. The '05 Astros drove Runningman crazy. He'll tell the story anytime anyone brings up the name Mike Lamb. In 2005, it was disheartening to see Lamb step up to the plate. It was like, "No! Not Mike Lamb. Anyone but him." Remember, this is Mike Lamb we're talking about. I have found myself uttering the words, "Let's see who is pitching tonight? No! Not (Lohse, Looper, Pineiro )!" Ugh...
