2019 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 154

2019 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 154

Quinn Harris-USA TODAY Sports Cubs skid continues in 2-1 loss In my day job, I do a fair amount of negotiating. Every now and then, in the middle of the negotiations, the other party breaks off the discussion and then the negotiation basically just ends. It’s frustrating because, historically at least, one side or the other would eventually say I’m willing to agree to X and if I don’t get it, I’ll walk away.

Cardinals 2, Cubs 1: It ain’t over till it’s over (PSST! It’s almost over)

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/ The Cubs suffered another excruciating defeat. Do you hear that sound? Listen closely... It’s the sound of the Cubs’ window of contention closing. Before you accuse me of being overly melodramatic, this game was yet another microcosm of not only this season, but last year too. Too many wasted chances. Some really good pitching, but too many walks at the worst possible time. It all added up to a 2-1 loss to the Cardinals, the Cubs’ fourth straight defeat and one they could little afford, as it pretty much ended any chance of winning the N.L. Central, five...
