The frustration that is surrounding this team is beginning to show. I’m sure by now you have seen the exchange online yesterday about the video of Nick Castellanos answering questions postgame Saturday night, but that is just a microcosm of what the fanbase is feeling. Getting swept in the first series out of the All-Star break is difficult to take, but doing it to a team with a record like the Cubs have is an even more bitter pill to swallow. They really need to bounce back starting tonight.
