Well, after last night's 5-3 loss in 13 innings to the Seattle Mariners, the Cubs have now lost 6 of 8 extra inning games.
I fell asleep (thankfully), but Sutter went last night, and this morning came thru with another email describing the ending: "I stayed until the bitter end last night and all 2,000 of us left were numb after watching them balk in a run, get doubled off second (again), miss Derek Lee by 20 feet on a pickoff throw, leave the bases loaded twice, only to be topped off by the single most inept play of the season--Jacque Jones stutter stepping, double clutching, and rolling the ball home so Barrett could miss both the ball and the runner who had missed the plate."
The Barrett part reminded me that I have this rare footage of a young Michael Barrett playing t-ball.
He began his career as a catcher, you know.
A moon-walking catcher.
By the way, I don't think Mr. Barrett is the sole problem with the team. Joe over at View From The Bleachers raises some good points.
