Picking A Poison

Hard to identify the most disheartening aspect of today's loss:

Blowing a 5-run lead?

Blowing a 5-run lead against the Cincinnati Reds?!

Blowing a 5-run lead against the Reds with our "ace" on the mound?

Seeing Alfonso Soriano misplay Chad Moeller's pop fly into a single?

Seeing Soriano getting picked off of first base?

Seeing Aramis Ramirez miss the game when he's been hitting so well and wondering if there is more to his sitting out than the Cubs are suggesting? (Where would I get that idea?)

Watching Will Ohman face two hitters, walk two hitters, and walk in two runs?

Having rag-armed former Cub, David Weathers, lock down the victory?

On the positive side, we now have a manager who seems as disgusted with what often goes on at Wrigley Field as we fans are.

Hoping for better things Saturday (Rich Hill v. Bronson Arroyo ) and Sunday (Lilly v. Kyle Lohse).
