I'm a jumble of emotions right now. But mostly angry.

I seriously think the Cubs just gave up after the Loney grand slam. The dugout was dead for all 3 games, someone should have showed some leadership and tried to rally the team.

I've been a Cubs fan since 1984 and this is the one that hurts the most probably because it was the first Cubs postseason since 1989 where I was able to see every pitch. 1984 was a heartbreaker too but my mom and I were fortunate enough to go see Game 1 where the Cubs whooped on the Padres.

Here are a couple of things that could ease the heartbreak over the long winter:

I want Soriano gone NOW. I'm tired of the hop, I'm tired of the long stints on the DL and I'm tired of paying him $14 million a year to suck in the postseason. (I also wouldn't be sad to see Aramis ubsgo...he's a talented player but I don't think he cares half the time)

Mark Cuban needs to be allowed to buy the team. I don't even care right now if he wants to tear down Wrigley Field and move the team to Schaumburg. After 100 years of suckitude something drastic needs to be done.

God-awful busy at work today.

We are 99% certain of our reception place. Yay!

The Cubs have signed Alfonso Soriano! Yay!

Praise the Lord for Randy Johnson or else I'd be firing most of my fantasy team today.

Thank heavens he isn't pitching against the Cubs this weekend, I gotta admit.
