Game 67 – Cubs 4 Tigers 5

Baseball games like this

Are a whole lot more fun when

Cubs get the walk off

Game 66 – Cubs 0 Braves 2

Every streak must end

But did the Cubs have to leave

Twelve runners on base?

Game 61 – White Sox 4 Cubs 1

After two days off

Were our Cubbies that bad, or

Was Danks just that good?

My silver lining?

John Danks is a pitcher on

My fantasy team

But – always a but

One of my other pitchers

Is Ryan Dempster

Game 59 – Twins 2 Cubs 0

Pitching remains good

Hitting remains anemic

Losses piling up

Cubs record slips to

Below five hundred again

Third time this season

Game 58 – Twins 7 Cubs 4

Dear Milton Bradley:

Just in case you didn’t know

Three outs per inning

Not your fault Cubs lost

But that defensive “error”?

Inexcusable

And let’s not forget

Base running gaffe in the sixth

Ball lost in the sun
