@Cubs Fire the shit out of ross please

One fan even said that the Cubs have the worst manager in all of baseball.

Another fan said that the team sucked in the game. The game was competitive and the team certainly had a chance in this game. The Cubs bullpen has been the team’s biggest issue and it showed yet again.

@Cubs You tried. And by tried, I mean sucked.

This was definitely a frustrating loss for the Cubs as they came back to tie the game up at 3-3 in the eighth. The Cubs and Cardinals will play a rubbermatch tomorrow afternoon.
