Come To Think of It: Things to Do In Denver When You're Dead

About things to do in Denver when you're dead"

Well, I certainly hope that the Cubs found something to do during their four game series against the Rockies, because they sure looked dead on the field.

Except for the one game they won, the Cubs couldn't hit with RISP; couldn't pitch, couldn't run and couldn't play defense.

But other than that, how did you like the play Mrs. Lincoln?

This should hardly come as a surprise. The Cubs have performed poorly against teams with winning records all season.

And yes, the Rockies are a good team, especially at home.

But come on, this was hard to watch. It was so pathetic, it would be laughable if it wasn't so sad.

Meanwhile, the injuries continue to pile up like cars in a freeway jam. Hey, at least they're good at something.

Look, even if this team somehow wins the division, we simply aren't a good baseball team. It will likely be another short run in the playoffs, if they make it at all.

We beat ourselves by not doing the fundamental things well. We've played very sloppy and our collars get tight with men on base.

Aramis Ramirez, unfortunately, won't be right until he has shoulder surgery. Carlos Zambrano has joined Ted Lilly on the DL.

And has anyone seen Geo Soto? There's this pot smoking fat man where he used to squat.

I don't know about you, but I'm tired of making excuses for this team.

In fact, I'm just tired, period. I'm going to bed. I suggest you do the same. Then we can be just like our heroes, who have been sleeping all series, come to think of it.
