    Why is it that everytime the Cubs change pitchers they lose the game. They need a new group of pitchers that can do the job. They got rid of some good ones and I hope their sorry now. Why don't they have a dress code for the players? Not what they wear but the long hair and beards. Some guys look ridiculous. They should be cleaned shaved and a half way cut haircut. Some guys look like santa claus.
