7/30 Crazy eighth

What a night. The 17 runs and 21 hits allowed by the Cubs in a 17-2 loss to the Rockies were both season highs. The last time they gave up 17 runs was July 3, 1999, at Philly when they gave up 21 runs. The Rockies rattled off a Major League record 11 straight hits.

“It’s a fluke thing,” Chicago pitcher Ryan Dempster said. “You can’t do that very often — that’s the reason it’s never been done before.”

Just one more embarrassment for us true blue Cubbie fans to add to our already long list. My list is in its 54th year and yet I keep coming back for more. Wonder what Freud would have to say about us?

He would suggest pensioning off Hendry, Piniella and Trammell before our proud team is destroyed by their incompetence…

Just what we needed in Lou’s absence – a stand in who almost destroyed the Tigers under his tenure…!
