Game Recap: White Sox 4, Cubs 1
I don't know why but for some reason my Game Recap got eaten. So this will be an even shorter, abbreviated version of my already short, abbreviated Game Recap.
The Cubs, they did not score many runs.
Alfonso, he had another 0-fer.
Dempster, he didn't pitch like an ace, walking 6 and striking out 4.
In terms of the stories that dominated the day at GROTA, as far as I'm concerned the mini-blog war is over (which will not stop our terrific friends over at Another Cubs Blog from making their snarky comments, but I do derive a ridiculous amount of pleasure knowing that they read me while I would sooner crap into a diaper and smear it all over my head than read them) and, speaking of craps-into-diapers, regarding Lou:
As far as the anti-Lou, he must be fired sentiment goes, I am apparently alone. Actually I'm a little shocked at how teflon Lou has been in this situation considering that he's the rebound manager from The Worst Managing Experience of Our Lives. You'd think that once we're cynical we'd stay that way but I guess two years of winning slaps blinders on even the most scrutinous pair of eyes.
I'll save my Lou rhetoric for a post coming to a blog near you tomorrow morning, but I do have a few questions I'd love to have answered: what would Lou need to do for you to lose faith in him? And how responsible is he -- and managers in general -- for the output of his team?
Anyway. The Cubs lost today, dropping to 4 out of first and 1 below .500. But don't worry - nobody appears keen on winning in the NL Central. Tomorrow, they play for revenge!
