What happened?

Looked a lot like last year, didn’t it?

Why can’t this Cubs team hit in the postseason? Lee, Soriano, Ramirez. Weren’t we writing this last year?

And was it just me, or did their body language suggest a lack of confidence from the very beginning?

I was for Ryan Dempster starting Game 1, but maybe it would have been better to throw Big Z. Maybe he wouldn’t have looked as nervous or shellshocked as Dempster.

Dempster was able to pitch his way out of a few jams, but you can’t keep on doing that.

We’ll see How Zambrano does tomorrow. Can’t do much worse.
