Somebody Cares, and it is Not Dusty
The Cubs never looked worse than in Sunday's 8-1 loss to the Twins that marked Derrek Lee's return after missing 59 games.
They made three errors and misplayed two other balls, heating up talk once again about their lack of fundamentals and about manager Dusty Baker's job security.
Even Lee was surprised by how poorly the Cubs performed Sunday.
"I don't understand it. To me it's just a matter of coming to the yard ready to play every day and I don't think we showed up yesterday. That's not really excusable," he said.
"I think we understand we have to do a better job than that. Sometimes you lose, but you need to show up every day."
