Along with their 3-10 record, the Cubs entered Thursday ranked last in National League home runs, 14th in slugging percentage, 13th in runs scored and 15th in pitching.

"You never want to start out poorly," baseball President Theo Epstein said. "There are a lot of things we can improve upon, and we will. But you also don't want to read too much into one homestand and one road trip. Certainly crystalize some areas we need to continue to strive to get better at."

I remember the exact moment I realized that I was not going to win the recent $650 million lottery jackpot.  It was when I heard a professor of mathematics on TV explain that the odds of winning were more than 1000 times worse than the odds of the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series… every year for the next ten years.  I almost tore up my $1.00 ticket right then.

First reaction: Typical Cubs. But, actually, they usually swoon in August, so maybe this is truly groundbreaking?
