Daily Facepalm, Labor Day Miracle Edition

The Cubs lost to the Giants yesterday after Carlos Marmol toyed with a mixture of wildness and hittability to blow a ninth-inning tie. That's probably the nail in the coffin full of nails.

Did Jorge Soler murder a baseball last night?


Do the Cubs have a game today?


Quote I didn't see coming.

"I think the most progress is definitely the defense. For the most part, we've had a couple ugly games, and for the other 130 games, we've played pretty solid defense, especially up the middle with Starlin Castro and Darwin Barney and David DeJesus and even Alfonso Soriano. For what his legs can do, he's played heck of a left field."
