Daily Facepalm 3.8.2012 – ST Cubs Not Entirely Depressing

Obstructed View Daily Facepalm

Cubs win! Cubs win! Cubs win!

The Cubs brought their spring training record up to the .500 level with a win against the vaunted Kansas City Royals. Shut up, someone could vaunt about them. But yesterday the main vauntworthy performance came from Jeff Samardzija, who faced just nine batters in three shutout innings in his effort to join the best starting rotation in baseball in Chicago in the National League. Why not? As much as everyone in the universe not named Samardzija would love to see his disconcerting amarous gazes be confined to bullpen warmup balls, what other starting candidate would you be disappointed to see bumped from the rotation? Yeah, the list ends at Garza. This is the year of "Who cares?" Don't let the answer to that question be you.

Video that recently got our hopes up.

When the Cubs win it all, it might look like this, except with more nuclear fallout.

I know. You've seen it already. And yet, you may never see it.

Is the Daily Facepalm daily?

Don't be so literal.

Is there a Cubs game today?

Yes. Against the Mariners at 2:05 CT. You can listen to it
