This losing streak - wasn't that kinda like Wizard of Oz?
Every day, you turn a corner and there's the witch with the "surrender" smoke signal, having the Cub bats walk thru the sleepy poppies, making everybody rusty, or sending off those freaking monkeys with wings and scaring the BeJesus out of everybody.
