Sometimes, the truth hurts.
Being a Chicago Cubs fan always hurts.
Often the two collide.

After the Cubs blew a late lead to lose their 5th game in-a-row (as part of a streak that would extend to 8 straight "L"s), Carlos Zambrano's ever-simmering temper boiled over to a torpedo of truth that publicly denounced the team's effort, the team's performance and the team's talent level. He eloquently declared, "We stinks!"

Now -- after his 5 HR + an ejection performance on August 12, Z has been pushed even further and is insisting that he retired!

That's the Cra-Z we all know! We can't condone his behavior, but we understand his frustration -- the Cubs are a major-market team with a fanatical following and steady attendance but just can't win. They have the 6th highest payroll and the 3rd worst record...eek gads!
