    I learned the word "Cubbery" right here at TCR. And it sure seems like we've been seeing quite a bit of the DISCUBBERY Channel this year.When Jeff Samardzija broke a bat over his knee last week, do you have any idea how lucky we were that he didn't, you know, break his wrists?Cubbery!And then we wouldn't have Shark Week starting Monday night.Jeff Samardzija is 7-10 with a 4.21 ERA, and the guys runnin' the show for the Cubs think he's one big gigantic piece of the future.Me too, by the way.And he'll be on the mound against the Houston Astros.A team who, as a fan, I cannot stand and now can't stand even more.We kind of figured the Cubs would lose 100 games this year, right?In fact, if they lose 31 more games then...goal reached.Because a team that loses 100 games... wellllll, you'd sure figure that team would get the number one pick in the draft, right?Well, the freaking Astros only have to lose 22.Cubbery.
