OK, Dale Sveum, Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer, Jason McLeod and all you other new boys in Cubs management —you get it now?
This isn’t Boston, or Milwaukee, or even San Diego, some of your former MLB stops.
This isn’t even, specifically, Chicago. (Two teams here, you know.)
This is the Cubs.
This is what they do.
They lose 7-4 heartbreakers at home, to teams such as the Nationals.
They trot out two famed set-up and closer dudes named Kerry Wood and Carlos Marmol in consecutive games — every game this season, for those of you keeping score at home — and blow both games, in which they were leading after the seventh inning.
Yes, it’s just two games.
There are 160 to go.
